K1 in infrared and ultraviolet

Has anyone heard (or better, experienced) how well the K1 will shoot in IR or UV without removal of the blocking filter?

My K10 was pretty horrible, though with vastly better sensitivity and resolution, the K1 might be OK for playing around, even if it blocks as much as the K10...

I'm mostly interested in black and white infrared, and I can filter that now. For UV, I'm just curious and haven't wandered down that path yet...

Thanks,

-Eric

Might be a bit early yet, as no one has actually tested a production model. And those that have handled pre-production ones are not talking. And likely have other things to test besides IR & UV. But an interesting question that might take a while to get answered.

I imagine if it was sensitive to IR or even HA wave length they would be advertising it as such. Since they are advertising everything else astro related from star trails to astrotracker to the leds to shoot at night. Of course I'd love it if it was a little sensitive to HA but I'm not holding my breath.

If your going to get a K1 you can get your K10 coverted to IR only.

You can use a converted camera the same as a normal one ie hand held with the same shutter times.
