Maybe because they realized they spent $4K and they can't really see much of a difference in their photographs compared to their APS-c gear?

"Camera is fantastic but at this point in time with two small kids using a smaller Mirrorless camera is a better fit for me."

"Ordered this and received from Amazon. Fantastic camera and in my opinion the best value in terms of full frame dslrs. If you're reading this, you know the specs. Only reason I'm selling it is because I've finally realized that having two small kids to run and chase after having a small Mirrorless camera is ideal, hence I've ordered the a6300. Also it's more convenient to shoot with live view for me."

Doesn't seem like the best of reasons but he's not out much money, reselling for a good sum, and he's not selling the lenses cheap. He didn't spend much time with the K1 tho.

I had to...i have a trip coming up in less than two weeks, and the mom and pop shop that I ordered from has been pretty non-communicative. So i did not know when it would arrive. So when that one comes, some other lucky soul is going to get a great deal on a brand new, unused K-1.

If you wonder why people would sell their K1 I have a very good reason to sell mine and its 24-70mm 2.8. There is a very very frustrating behaviour on the body. Try it for yourself, when in low light, (I shoot night shows) try to aqcuire focus with shutter priority set to focus, see how long it takes. Now try the same thing without focus priority, you will see your body focus much faster.

Phase detection seems to be pretty weird as shooting bursts with live view gives better results than using the viewfinder (=PDAF vs CDAF)

I got a boxing championship in 15 days, I still don't know how I'll make it without a reliable, priority foscused AF.C mode. Technical support told me yesterday they were not aware of that. I know there will be updates, but shooting everyday with this particular behaviour is really annoying.

So if you want to get it in Lyon (France) here's the deal, buy my complete kit (45 days old and 4 year guarantee) and I'll give you a Pentax SMC-FA 50mm 1.4 that cost me 250€ used.
