I've done extensive analysis and decided I don't really need it... but do you think I could consider selling it for even a half second? Not going to happen. It's luxury, one of my few.
You could have bought a D500 instead, it would have suited your shooting style better than the K-1

I did the same research. Now I have two. And a 645Z.
Where does it end?

I got my K1 in June 2016 from Camera Cottage in Billings MT. I was on my way to Yellowstone and stopped in to see the place as I had purchased a few items from them via the internet. Once I picked it up I had to buy it. When I started looking at the images I was hooked. Just something about the image quality. I now have added a K1-II to the mix. I have been very happy with my decision to go full frame. My K5-IIs and K3 are not as happy with that decision.

Sandy,
Do you use your 645Z much? I don't hear you mention it very often.

I certainly understand that.

Enjoy that camera, it's a fine piece of kit, capable of producing some very fine imagery with your help.

Did you find much difference between the two?

Not a lot. Autofocus is a wee bit faster. Since the K1 autofocus is pretty decent as is this makes a larger difference that one would think. My K1-II does not suffer from shutter shock. I tend to keep my ISO below 400 whenever possible so this avoids what some people regard as image degradation at higher ISO's.


When I go to places like Yellowstone I keep a D FA 150-450 on my K1-II and a D FA 28-105 on my K1 and work around the shutter shock. Not hard to do with TAv mode. Whenever I need a different lens I just use whatever camera is handy. I cannot really tell any difference in the images.


Sadly the K1-II does not seem to write images any faster that the K1. Not usually a problem but occasionally frustrating.

I have wanted a K-1 since I played around a bit with one at Hunt's photo in Portland, Maine and had to have them take it away so I wouldn't go into debt buying one. Then early this month, one showed up here on PF and I had to buy it. So much more to learn but so amazing with my FA* lenses. Love at first click.

Congrats. It is such a fun camera to use. I've owned one basically since they were released and I don't regret the purchase for one second.
