Replacing my K-1........which do I get ?

K1II is better in many ways if you don't care about NR above 1600 iso. Finally i returned mine for this reason. Maybe i was wrong.
perfection is not in this world. Or you wait for a K1 mkiii. It's my option.

I confirm k1ii NR IS absolutely agressive from 1600 ISO. I tested both camera (k-1 ans k1ii) and Dpreview IS right. I juste Hope Pentax will correct it on the next model. Luminance has not to be corrected straight from RAW. Some of us like noise -and details- in their pictures. Even if i am a pentaxian, i have to admit something wrong happened in the New k1ii digital processing. I doubt a New firmware Can correct it unfortunately.

Better chromatic noise control in K1ii but luminance has been corrected too with some details lost in the frame. Thanks to the new accelerator unit. I just hope a new firmware will correct it soon.

I dream to buy a new Pentax FF mirrorless to replace my old Sony A7. But is Pentax able to make it (a new line up with body and lenses)?

Thx Rondec & Crash82 for the replies. I used already a K1 but i was not satisfied with the AF module. I will test soon a K1ii in a demonstration and will decide if i upgrade or not. I just hope Pentax will release soon this update.

K-1 MK2 - Unhappy with results at moderate ISO settings

As i know only the firmware 1.02 has been created a long time ago for the K1ii. What about the noise reduction issue with this firmware? Does anybody know?
I loved my K1 shots @6400 iso and i hesitate to upgrade with the new K1ii for that reason.
My postprocessing from RAW doen't eliminate noise -or just a little bit- for the reason i prefer details than less noise.
I don't know if Pentax staff made some adjustments to correct it or even commented officially that.

Mirrorless is future in many ways! To have a place on the market, they will be forced to follow Sony and Co!

I miss a Pentax mirrorless Full frame ! I use for a long time my Sony A7 but i still prefer the colors of my K5ii. Next year, Canon & Nikon will come in the mirrorless FF segment to beat Sony. I just hope Pentax -or Ricoh- will join them for the battle of the century! :)

Jpeg in built camera is incredibly good with K1. On top of that, i don't see any difference between fine and regular quality
Compared with my K5, i can get the same quality until 3200 iso -not more!
With K1, you can go until 6400 iso without any problems!
A step further is @12800 where you loose some details in shadow where RAW is still good!
An impressive camera!

I would use another letter like MD or ZD or XD to start the FF digital line-up. K-1 for FF is confusing because K-3 will have probably successors (K-2, K-1)

I hope this rumor is true.
I can't affort to buy a FF camera for 3000 € or 4000€ with a FF lens.
This is madness (and suicidal) if they do it.

We have new details about the upcoming new Pentax FF here:
http://forum.xitek.com/thread-1508304-1-1-1.html

And it will not be a 42 MP!
As i said before, Pentax will keep the 36 MP, cheaper and completely improved for great results (pixel shift?).
Price could be agressive around 2000 €

Can the Pextax Full Frame rival the outstanding Sony A7RII ?

I doubt Ricoh will use the last 42 MP sensor on its new FF in october. It's too early and expensive for them.
Specially if Pentax uses its own modified sensor which needs time to develop it.
When K3 has appeared in 2013, the 24 MP from Sony was on the market from 2011.
Im not sure about my own theory but if the new Pentax FF is in the stores for christmas, they have chosen already its sensor for a long time ( it exists right now!).
So 36MP or 42MP?
I hope it will be 36 MP
Why? First, i know Pentax works hard to improve existing sensor from Sony and they did it well in the past.
Second: price! If they choose 36 MP it's possible to sell their FF less than 2500$
But marketing is marketing and im not a business man.
So more reliable informations and facts are required.

The green dot is not sufficent when you make street photography or moving subject. Telemetric system and EVF system are the best for the moment for manual focus. Digital SLR has a limitation about that. We could seriously imagine a solution including the same digital back system of Hasselblad. You would give to your old film bodies a second life! :)
