Camera Cottage K-1s

Camera Cottage ((406) 671-6640) has 3 K-1s in stock as of now. Carter says that K-1 production has shut down because of the damage to Sony's sensor plant, That plant is where the K-1 sensors were made and the K-1 is the only camera with that sensor now. I wonder if we'll see a K-1 II sooner rather than later?

Is it the only one? How about the A7R? (which - see link below - is still in production) The D810?

Sony is working hard to restore production. They will. Pentax won't be forced to replacing the K-1 just a few months after introduction, which is not a trivial task anyway.

I don't think there will be that big of a long-term impact. Ricoh would have said more than they did in the recent press release.

Sales rep don't know much except what they are being told. The likelihood that a new camera design is needed because of sony fab issues, is, nearly zero. But it may take several months to put a fab line back in order, produce a few pre-series to check quality and refill the production pipeline.

I agree, the fact that the K-1 has USB 2.0 indicates gives us a bit of an idea of the time put into R&D. I doubt we would see a new camera out of this just based off the time I think would be needed to make a new camera.
