I have upgraded my K1 to K1 Mark II.
Bought it in Copenhagen at Goecker and delivered it there for upgrade service. They sent it to the service center in Sweden, and it was returned for my pick up 4 weeks later.

My local dealer sent my K-1 from Finland to Sweden on week 21 and got it back last week. So it took six weeks.

Just sent in a K-1 to Precision camera for Updating to K1 Mark II.

Precision Camera received the K-1 Body on Wednesday July 11th.
As of July 15th - Website says "Received" ( Day 2 )
As of July 17th - Website says "Received" ( Day 4 )
As of July 19th - Website says "Received" ( Day 6 )
As of July 20th - Received Phone call & Email from Precision camera - asking for me to sign an "UPGRADE SERVICE AGREEMENT".
I was told that the camera would be updated in the next few days and require the signed agreement back before they could ship it back to me..
You are able to sign the PDF and email back a scanned image of the signed copy, mail it back ( Slower ), or fax it back. It appears that they will be able to do the upgrade within the 5 -10 days as promised.
As of July 23 - Website says "IN REPAIR" ( Day 8 )
As of July 25 - Camera Showed up at my front Door - UPS 2 Day Shipping
