Wikipedia Pentax Cameras page needs updating

Anyone want to go and update this?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentax_cameras

Currently it says only this about the K-1:
"In early 2015, Ricoh announced development of a Pentax full-frame DSLR for release later in the year, and at the CP+ show in Yokohama Japan, a mockup was displayed that suggested the camera's potential specifications, including: an IR port for remote release, an anti-aliasing filter simulation mode, and an articulating rear LCD.[29]"

I think it deserves a little photo and some words about actual release

Agree. At the very least it should be done by someone steeped in Pentax lore who actually owns the camera and/or has shot it extensively. Kenspo, perhaps?

Hmm.. I think the community is undecided about the release Pentax installed. Some call it mushy, some liken it to a sniper's trigger, some failed to notice a difference. Might call for a stub :^|

Mission accomplished for wikipedia French. I created the article from scratch https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentax_K-1 and linked the other languages to it, if some of the French contributors are interested in reviewing and going further with I would appreciate

This is great (for those who own a K-1) and it shocked me to see a full and extremely well written article in French ... from Ireland !!
I have read the entire article and I have yet to find any grammar/spelling errors .... I'm very picky about that!
It is concise and up to date, a job well done.
So ... excellent installment of this Pentax K-1 presentation on Wiki.

Cheers!
