went to samy's to check out the k-s1.

they have them in the one in culver city, at Sepulveda blvd. K-s1 looks better in reality than on the pictures. I thought it was a bit bigger and grip looked deeper. The plastic looked less glossy and 'cheesy'.

I then asked then if they plan to stock anything more, but the sales person said all pentax is special order. They got k-s1 and k-50 in large batch at a very good price, hence the sale

they also have a used k-01 and a 35-70 smc-f..

Thanks, I may go over to Samy's to check out the K-S1. It was so much nicer when Samy's used to be practically down the street from where I live.

I still wonder on how many critics of the ergonomics of this camera ever even touched one. Ergonomics is difficult judge with the eye - it is not designed for the eye.

its not for me just because of no wr alone. that feature led me to pentax to get a k50 in the first place. i see its place though. ks-2 was somewhat tempting, but i feel like the k3 would be better given the prices of each.
