It's different cameras, but on the overall value proposition and feature set, I think there are many D810 owners who now see that their camera is no competition to a K-1 and struggle to find areas where it can keep up.

A tiny bit of niche moving target AF advantages (which for most is a gimmick only) in some areas for D810 can't excuse a complete lack of in-body stabilisation for example.

All today's cameras have extremely good AF capabilities and any mediocre or good photographer can get all the shots he wants from them.
The real differentiator for the crowd are the featureset, the price, the ergonomics the allrounder capabilities.
That all are areas where the K-1 outshines the competition.

If you wanted best AF, nobody chose a D810, but went for a Canon 5D in their price bracket.

And let's not forget the price bracket itself: A K-1 only needs to beat sub $1800 (brandnew) cameras to be a winner. And I see no competition. :)
