Finally K1 Mark II

Sitting on my desk now, review half way written.... HD 28-105 FA is pretty darn nice too. Finally, 4 years after the K1 came out, I got one fer-myself I did. Mark II was more convenient to buy, but I'd be happy with either.

Yes, the DFA 28-105 is a surprisingly good lens. It vignettes a bit, but not so badly that it can't be compensated for in post processing.

Enjoy.

You are gonna love that third dial, so useful, in fact the whole camera reeks of useful features and as mentioned already the 28-105 is a very decent lens.

I'm sure you are going to love it! The DFA 28-105 is surprisingly good but the K-1 is also great with old lenses too. Enjoy!

Agree Jonathan. Just picked up the Pentax SMC 28mm f/3.5 (the better version, not the M), really looking forward to using that one when it comes in from Japan. Have many others lying around too, trying them out one by one. Hand held PSR mode is very convincing and effective on wide angle up to about 70mm. Better than I thought it would work, highly impressive.
