Wow. Quite some info in that Yaotomi blog! Thanks for the link, rawr. Too bad Japanese is so difficult to translate into English since I am sure I missed something. Cool that the increasing ISO range is not achieved by digital amplification but is analog output from the sensor hardware. Also very cool that they put an LED inside the remote cable socket. Since I use this all the time at night for astro work, it will come in very handy. Can't wait for more hands-on reports.

yeah - I stumbled into that one - particularly appreciated the comments about the rear LCD - to paraphrase -" People who have held the camera and suspended it from the LCD say that it is very strong: looking at a picture of it, and bringing the full weight of my prejudice and ignorance to bear, I disagree" - or words to that effect. Don't give them the satisfaction of watching them to check that - I'm sure maltfalc will confirm.

I wonder and wonder... if Ed from Photouniverse will eventually come out with one of his awesome videos to the K-1!? Is he here on the forums active?

Ed is on the forum, but I don't know how active. I wait for his reaction also. Even not always agree with him, that is normal, I like that he is passionate. A man with a passion for good photography, not special for some brand. In a way, his opinion can be considered somehow neutral, exposing also good and bad points of a camera. And I appreciate this type of opinions, in an ocean of brand loyalist or merchandisers ready to say that every camera is the best.

Wiz, does Croydon Camera House still stock Pentax?
Rod, I called in there last week, nary a Pentax in sight.

I'd suggest you call Paul at Kirk's and get on the list.

Uhh... he completely bashed the K-1, the FF format itself and the Pentaxians - months ago. Let that man be a Fuji fan, don't try to make him like - or at least be objective about - Pentax.

A decent look at the main features of the camera with some nice detail shots, and bonus size comparisons with the LX:

Yaotomi Camera Store blog, Japan [2016/02/17]
?????????????????????????????????PENTAX K-1 ????????????? - ??????????by????????
my google translator came up with the following -
"Long-awaited and, ~ I become dried fish" while give me the words of the angry and the like from our customers, Well door to the full-size machine was also courted the past year controversial nuclear also."

Quite amusing

Also that site called the K-1 the 'kewan'. This, I think could be a nickname that may stick.

Did anyone read the terrible Cnet review? So many errors. I'll forgive you if you stop reading at the first paragraph when she talks about how "the relatively inexpensive 645D has been quite popular" with no mention of the Z. But no, she goes on to say how the K-1 is for enthusiasts. Apparently, based on its specs (whatever that means), its using the same sensor as the original A7R without an AA filter to blur "edges". Video looked good, but the sensor SR produced wobbles that shouldn't be there. The reviewer doesn't "think" sensor SR works as well as optical SR. She "thinks" she saw some shake at reasonable shutter speeds.
