Welcome! The K-1ís a fine camera by all accounts. Iíd very much endorse what Norm said about finding a lens you love, then finding a body to put on it. Thatís what happened to me; I got the 20-40 Limited (APS-c) for my K-5, and then itched to see what a better body could do with it. So I got the K-3II and itís a perfect match - K-5-like handling and build with better internals which shows the lens off to best advantage. With the K-1, you have a selection from the Pentax range of lenses which IMHO are not bettered by any maker, camera or third party.

That's an excellent quote and equally excellent advice
What Norm and Big Mack said. Find your ideal lens first. I bought my A* 400 F2.8 in 1995 and have never really looked to buy a different camera system since then. With the K-3II, 1.4 XL and the AF 1.7 adaptor the lens is good for as long as I can carry it around! next camera body will be some version of the K1.....

it looks like now they've lost more ground than ever with lenses
Welcome to the forum, I really lucky as this has not been an issue for me, as I'm still using older glass that's giving all I need from my K1s just now, like this example.
