Now that there is such a joyful and calm mood in PF, its time to start finding pics from the K-1 that will be posted on various websites, but most importantly to start upload the pics that the members take... I'm sure some of the forum members will have the camera quite earlier and we are expecting some of the real thing magic until we get to hold the K-1 in our hands

@Kenspo Do you read me my friend?

Some of the first official examples including pixel shift resolution can be found here:
A couple with the K-1 and FA77

With the Tamron 28-75/2.8 and Sigma 530 Super flash in P-TTL mode which seems to work well with the K-1 unlike my Metz 58 AF-2.

Sad you missed the focus on that guy so badly.....they say that Art lens is tough to focus.......
I think it was more my hiccup during the 1.3 sec. exposure

Nice gravy doves !

Giving the K-1 its second outing this morning, with the DA560mm. Visited our local Great Crested Grebes before I went to work.
There are various theories on why grebes eat feathers. One is that they form a partial plug between the stomach and small intestine, which acts as a strainer to keep fish bones in the stomach long enough to be completely digested.
The eggs have hatched one a day for the last 3 days. I wonder if egg number 4 hatched after I left this morning.
Full exif available if you click through to Flickr version.

Love that church interacting with the clouds, I'm starting to yearn for a Sigma Art.

Here's a crop of an FA100 Macro shot:

Felt insecure about my K-1 tracking (actually bored looking for Whales on my beach walk this morning) somebodies dog was running along the beach...... no thinking on my part...... user setting 3 (my BIF starting point)..... 20 shots (buffer seemed to slow for the last 3 or so...... all in focus (I reckon) DFA 150-450 lens..... click image to go to flicker to see the 20....ho hum....

heres a 1/9th crop (4k pixels) of one shot....... clearly this Dog is a professional....

I think someone needs to do a comprehensive "How to setup and use my Pentax for Auto Focus, including tracking moving stuff" guide or video ...... whilst not wishing to compare brands, I can't help but think 85% of "reasonable" people experiencing some focus and focus tracking issues with their Pentax just need some help.
