Why I will not buy a K-1

I have already one on order, but a lot will complain about the missing features. You name them and why you won't buy one

Here here...

I think Ricoh finally got the memo, that Pentax has more cachet than Ricoh when it comes to cameras.
I feel confident it will have Pentax on the back.

I won't be buying one simply because I have a perfectly functioning K-3 that fits my needs just fine and will continue doing so for years to come (knock on wood). The expected price of the K-1 (or whatever it gets called) will provide my house with propane for an entire year, and that's a better use for the money as far as I'm concerned.

How dare you start such a thread, reminiscent of another "quite similar" thread ??
You know this will degenerate into a recipe book !

This thread smacks of satire. Should we have a warning in the title? 😂

I think you read that wrong. The thread is Why I will not buy a K-1.

so this is NOT the thread to complain about a lousy 33 point AF or lack of 3d algorithms for AF?
