Just curious.

It's still in stock here in the US, so it's not flying off the shelves. But I'm sure it will sell out soon enough.

I would buy one, except I snagged one in June on that killer sale, and now I'm saving pennies for the new D FA* 50 and 85.

19,999,998 to go. (sorry, but couldn't resist jumping on the bandwagon)

I didn't and nor did any of my family or friends.
Just 19,999,872 more needed for a definitive answer.

Of four responders, one has one.... that is 25%.

With a world population of 7.6 billion we can safely assume that close to two billion people have bought K-1 Silvers. I'd say it's doing extremely well.

Pentax K1 silver is something for the connoisseur, one needs to have silver lenses to match the body. If I'd get a second K1, it would be black and if my current copy does not break, I'd either wait for the next model, or I'll get backup copy when the K1 will be about to be discontinued.

Looks great with the FA* 85. Might have to bite the bullet and get one for the FA* zooms :-)

I wish i had the money to buy a K1.
My current lenses:
A24/2.8, F50/1.7, M50/1.7, K55/1.8, A35-105/3.5, Tokina AT-X90M 'Bokina' 90/2.5 Macro, ATX100 100-300/4, ATX280 AF 28-80/2.8, Vivitar 400/5.6, Jupiter-9 85/2.0 (M42), Panagor 35/2.0 (M42) Super-Takumar 55/2.0 and 35/3.5
And a lousy DA18-55.

The Full-Frame would certainly fit my lenses better than my K200d even though it is way too big.

Current i am reverting to the LX as i like its size and especially its controls and how it operates, shutter-speed-knob and aperture on the lens.

Oh and i prefer Chrome/silver above black.
