Greetings from New Hampshire while holding my new K-1

I never thought I would be on this site with a new camera because I was very happy with my Sony A7 camera, but I dropped it along with my Sony wide angle lens in a brook while trying to get a better shot of a waterfall last week, and they both did not survive 2 seconds in the water so we shall see but I am excited with the K-1 going forward.

Welcome to the forum, however I still wouldn't recommend dropping the K1 into a brook.

Welcome aboard! I'd be surprised if the K-1 would die that way unless it impacted a hard surface underwater.

Welcome to the forums. Smart of you to purchase a weather sealed K-1. You have a lot to look forward to with all of the useful features and image quality.
