It's Here!!!

Today was a very long day. I had been prepared to wait ages for confirmation that my K-1 had been delivered. What I was not prepared for was it being delivered first thing in the morning, meaning I had to get through a whole day of work knowing that it was sitting at there at home waiting for me!

But anyway, here it is. My new toy. I know, take pictures with it not of it, but I just thought I'd share. I've taken some test shots and will post them, along with my initial impressions, just as soon as I can get Lightroom and/or Windows 10 to play nice.

Congrats. When I get my K-1, I'm going to have to schedule a vacation day so I can play with it.

Congratulations. At the beginning, some of the changes vs previous camera layout creates love and hate first impressions. But after a couple on month of use, I've gotten used to the K1 and DFA lenses cobo. And only now I realize how good the K1 is, I just feel like I can do any kind of photos with no limit. It's just so comfortable to shoot with the K1 and picture quality is stunning. Looking forward to read your first impressions.
