First post here!

We already have a forum for it and it's not even released!
I'll be laughing pretty hard if it's not called K-1...

First response here!

As much as I don't like the K-1 name, it does go with the flagship modeling sequence: K-7, K-5, K-3, and now K-1

Here's hoping for a decent price. I'm putting off APS-C lens purchases for now until I find out more.

The price and features of this k-1 certainly appeals to me that I might get it sooner than later...

Around 2 years ago I remember telling my DSLR friends that I would probably come back if Pentax did full frame.. here we go.

Yeah. I had a few APS-C lenses in mind that I wanted to get for my K-50, but now that the rumored price of the K-1 body looks reasonable, there could be a possibility that for the first time ever, I might jump onto this new technology rather than ride on older generation cameras. I tend to stay behind a few generations due to cost. It's cheaper & they still perform very good, compared to the latest generation cameras. I had planned on picking up a K-3 or K-3II when it reached a $500 or less body price. That would have been about the time that the next generation APS-C cameras were phasing them out. Like late this year or sometime in 2017.

I'm not too invested in the Pentax APS-C area with my 2 K-50 bodies & 4 lenses. I can still use the 4 lenses on the K-1, but I'd rather be getting FF glass if I do get the K-1 to get the full benefit of shooting FF & also use that FF glass on my K-50.

But it all depends on the pricing of the K-1.
