Thoughts on K1 upgrade

I've had one bad experience with them fixing a DA 21 Ltd - it took a few months before they decided it was too hard to do and offered me a brand new one for the price of the cost of repair. It also took me having to call them to find out how it was "progressing" (in actual fact it didn't - it just got stuck in Japan). I've heard similar stories before too from Pentaxians on other forums. So I wouldn't say they're amazing...

Poll: K-1 upgrade circuit board or not?

I'm very keen for handheld PS, so I'm likely to get it pending available funding from the finance minister. I've already gone all in having sold off my K-5 and crop lenses (well really, it was just the 15 and 18-135) to make the switch to FF. I want to prolong the life of my K-1 as much as possible. If the new chip will bring new life to it, I'll welcome it. Having said that, I think it's $700 here in Australia. :(

Pentax k1 + 43mm?

My journey with the trio of FA Limited lenses have been: 31 -> 77 -> 43

The 43 was the most apprehensive buy considering I had no interest in that focal length and it was deemed the weakest of the three. That was on the K5. Since upgrading to the K1, I have found the 43 to be my most used lens. It's seriously a great combination. I feel if I had used it on the K5, I wouldn't have liked it as much, but for the K1, I feel it's a must have,

I recently sold my K-5 (11363 shutter count) with the battery grip and a DA 18-135 for $AUD455 off eBay. Whoever bought it got a bargain in my opinion...Probably should have split the item and body, but was looking for a quick sale.

There were over 10 people watching the item, and that was just for the Australian shoppers. There must be a much larger number in the US.

'Rendering' question of FA 43 Limited
Posted By Munki
Replies: 30
Views: 2,275
Well, I never said being clinical was a bad thing...Mainly because as macro lenses, that's precisely what you want/expect from them. Sometimes the macro lenses can be brutally detailed to the point you need to soften images. I'm sad that I've passed on my DFA 50 and 100 (non-WR version), but no doubt will be getting the WR version some time down the track. I think you've pretty much convinced yourself that you don't need the 43, to be honest. ;) If you ever have an ounce of hesitation, I say wait until you no longer have any before you commit to a purchase.

I've always felt the DFA 50 (and 100) were quite clinical compared to the more artistic nature of the FA limiteds. Maybe that's just me though.

It's interesting to see they're not showing up on the Pentax Australia website either... I just purchased the "last" silver off their eBay store.

I was throwing out some old receipts and found the invoice for my K-5 purchase (got it from Digital Camera Warehouse) and it was about $1100. For the serious bit of technology that is inside the K-1, it's worth every cent (and more in my opinion, but let's not tell them). With this 20% off (on again by the way), it's extremely competitively priced.

So I tried the link for the 15% off yesterday, and surprisingly, it worked for the DFA 28-105! So this code still appears to be valid for those interested.

I think there was a recent batch of lenses that came in, cause the 28-105 wasn't available a few weeks back.

I'm going to be honest, I haven't fully opened the box to check all the other contents...I literally took the camera and battery out only and have left the other stuff in tact. I should look for that limited hot shoe cover. It looks nice.

Thoughts on neck straps

I recently bought an ONA Presidio neck strap as well as an ONA Kyoto wrist strap. I personally prefer wrist straps, but the neck strap is handy when I've got the kids out with me and need to use my hands all of a sudden.

Also purchased the Pentax denim strap just for fun. It's quite cool. Will post up some pics later.
