Issues with my Pentax K-1, D-BG6 Battery Grip Let me know if yours is like mine?

Yes what you are saying makes complete sense, but I only use my grip when I have on my 70-200mm or 100-300mm. When I use my primes, it is pure overkill to keep on my grip. In a quick change situation, i don't want to chance losing the seal gasket. However your point is correct, but why should I settle for a defective product, if in fact this is a defect.

Sounds like no one else has my issue.

There is no aspect that shows it isn't fitting correctly. It fits, it just isn't snug or fully secure, Flipped over it will fall out due to the motion of the flip. None of my other grips were this loose fitting.

Yes. that is why I got another rubber stopper from Ricoh and neither of them fit firmly in the grip, but both fit securely on my K1.

It is the Grip that is the problem.

I keep getting the same Pentax Grip from you guys with issues.

The first grip I received from B&H, the K1 connector gasket fit snuggly into the slot within the grip. However there was another issue with either the camera or the grip causing me to have to pull the battery multiple times in order to reset the unusable K1. Well I finally got a body that works but I am on my 4 th grip that has a weird issue. The black sealing gasket on the base of my K-1 doesn't seat firmly in the allotted slot of the grip. Either B&H keeps sending me the Grip i return to them or this is a defect. I even had Ricoh send me another gasket to see if that was the issue and both of them fail to fit securely. I have always had a grip with my camera but I am scared if i use the grip in the field, that i will misplace the sealing gasket. I am talking about the black one not the white clear one that comes with the grip.

Does everyone that own a K1 and a BG6 Grip have the same issue or do I need a 5th grip. If so how can I insure B&H isn't just sending me back the one I sent them?

Help please!

I would if it wasn't part of a free gift offer. I wouldn't feel right ordering one from Amazon or Adoroma and returning this defective one.

Also BigMackCam, no difference. Mine looks exactly like your unit with the exception of my the black gasket in the front slot just doesn't fit firmly or snuggly. It looks exactly like yours but yours isn't loose and easily falls out.

I am a seasoned Pentaxian and have never had an issue before. I have tried every way and it fits in the slot, however it is never snuggly seated. If turned upside down and tapped it falls right out.

No user error here. Again the first grip didn't have this issue but the last 3 did.

DFA 70-200 on K1 with 70-200 g2 on d810

I know the reviewer loves Pentax. He is very fair on other reviews. Could have had a bad copy as his results were miserable. I actually love the K1 with my Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 OS lens. It is super fast and sharp.

I thought about upgrading to the Pentax lens but don't see the value in it especially if my copy is working for me.

The first series of numbers are the correct ones on the body, but the last series of numbers on the serial number that are internal numbers are not the ones on the EXIF data info.

Thanks all for the info.

This is a new one. Just got a new Pentax K-1 from B&H Photo. When I ran the shutter count image to insure that it was the first photo, I found out something interesting. The shutter count was confirmed the first photo, but the internal serial number was not the same as the one on the box and on my B&H Invoice. The camera data shows the internal number to be 202XXX and the one on the box and invoice show 294XXX Is this a problem? How could this happen?

The deal is for the full frame camera, Battery Grip, Bag, and SD card. Still a pretty good deal. I purchased at $1783.98 with grip, but missed add ons and $110 increase in price.

looks like they added a bag and 64 GB high speed memory card to the deal. The price was $1783.98 early yesterday, but has been 1895 since noon yesterday. At least they added some additional value to it.

Any word if we will see the next Pentax Full Frame by years end? Any speculation on the improvements it will feature over the K-1?

Keep the 31 for sure. Then it would be a toss up between the Sigma 18-35 and the 16-50. I would keep whichever one didn't sell of the two.

I look forward to testing with my Sigma 100-300 f4 as well. Slightly sharper than the 70-200 but the also a bit older. Both lenses are great fast lenses on my K-5IIs and I hope they work as well or better on my K-1, since they are both full frame.

Please let me know your image quality results with the 70-200. I am stepping up from a K-5IIs and would like to know if there is a noticeable difference.

I would appreciate any feedback and or photo post.

Thanks.

Okay here are some Bokeh photos at 1.8 both lenses. Focus point is the N in Rowenta on the Iron. Subject in the back is a bookcase approximately 4 feet behind iron. The Pentax limited photo is on the top. What do you guys think. I actually changed the Sigma photo because I made an error on the focus point causing a blur.

The focal point was the top of the porch window. To the right of the 7240 and about the height of the 4.

Okay, wanted to just post some unedited photos at f4.0 and f1.8 on a tripod so you guys can judge for yourselves. No corrections or edits were made except converting it to a Jpeg.
