Will you be going to Pentax aps-c or to a Mirrorless system? Just curious.

I think this is probably the first used K-1 ever being sold...

Good luck with the sale!

Second actually. A guy pre-ordered one but then bought it from his local store. So he listed the B&H pre-order. Not sure if it sold.

Personally, I'm kind of glad I'm not the only one who was scared of the weight. I mean, I like MX/Program plus sized cameras.

It is a bit weighty, esp with some lenses - eg K-1 + Sigma 35 Art = 1.6 kg.

But it's always the lens + body bundle. Even mirrorless gets pretty hefty once you add a big lens.

^I'm going to stick with my Sony A7II + Pentax K-S1. The image quality of both aren't nearly as good, but they're much easier for me to handle.

The grip is quite good and so is the shake reduction, so even with the Sigma ART, I can shoot it single handed easily.... but after a week of shooting (and no neck strap - forgot to bring it!) my skinny arms can really feel the difference!

So that's what it looks like!

Remember that Sigma will soon offer to service these scratches for free.
