Same for me, video wise not much but it is lightning fast on the dfa 50mm and my 28-105mm seems snappier too.

I went and picked up the camera. It was packaged well and appearance wise it looks good but the grip creak is back though.

UPS usually has trouble delivering to me since my name is not in the apartment notification system and on one occasion I saw them chucking a lens from adorama on to the patio, not waiting for me to sign it, and the driver dash off. So I thought I'll just have them hold my camera for pick up on Monday since that's what the tracking update said . But 2-day air means 1-day and the camera is here, well Northbrook since 6 am but alas customer pick up opens on Monday at 830 am. I tried to have someone from UPS to open facility or put it back on delivery but no dice. Thanks for listening.

When I spoke to Sun cameras in Toronto they said they could do it, but this was back in Dec. Give them a bell and see.

On 9/22/2018 you created Web Order Number W******* in our systems to reserve a spot for a Pentax K-1 Mark II Upgrade. We now have about 50 kits available and would like to work with you to schedule your upgrade. If you are still interested in having the upgrade performed, please let us know and we’ll forward the Ricoh Terms & Conditions document to you and provide information to send your Pentax K-1 in for the upgrade. The upgrade price of $550 remains the same.

The K-1 Mark II Upgrade adds the following advanced functions:

Main improvement of performance: Improve high sensitivity by accelerator unit. The combination of PRIME IV and the RICOH developed Accelerator Unit drastically reduces noise, allowing for high sensitivity up to ISO819,200.

Improve Auto Focus performance: K-1 Mark II has a latest algorithm that realizes high speed up for Auto focus. Furthermore, even in situations where the color of the model and the background are the similar, the movement of the subject is accurately captured.
Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution: The K-1 Mark II has a Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution. This technology is a revolutionary technology which comes from reverse thinking to utilize the minute camera shake itself to produce the composite images.
o Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution can be effectively used during low light situations even without tripod.

o When you can use a Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution, please don’t use tripod.

Appearance:

o Change the mark on front lower right from [SR] to [II]

o Change the certification seal on bottom side from [PENTAX K-1] to [PENTAX K-1 Mark II].



If you are no longer interested in having the upgrade performed, please let us know and we’ll remove you from our contact list.

Thank you,

Precision Camera

Why is 24mp the standard mark for APS-C? Wouldn't a lower mp count help with low light? Just curious.

I think Pentax is committed to DSLR and JDM preferences.

GRIII is our swan song? Just Kidding. 2020 should reveal a wide berth for DSLR as established players move out. Aps-c Fuji / M43 Oly / FF Dslr Pentax. Lets see who forges an alliance with Samsung. But congrats to Oly! This is an impressive piece of gear.

Thanks Mike. It feels weird talking into a lens so I was on the quieter side of things. I'll try again with the aperture decreased and after a shave as well.

Did they initially send you an email saying that you can send it in? When did you place the order for the upgrade if you don't mind?

I'm skeptical anybody would claim that, most who opted for the upgrade did so for the faster autofocus or the handheld PS (at least, me). But we might hear stories of botched reassembly and switched up cameras. Being sanguine is being Pentaxian so let's hope for the best.

Is there a possibility Olympus might overshadow our party? Apparently it's their centennial as well and with the premium m43 offering they might steal the spotlight?
I wholeheartedly hope Ricoh plays up the Pentax legacy regardless of other manufacturers revelations/announcements. Who knows perhaps Ricoh will send out that AOCo sticker out as a present?

Lee is not the problem, it was this one particular guy in the comments. I don't seek out videos to be trolled, in this case I was expecting a jovial conversation with Lee until this interloper had to make his presence felt.

ps: Saw your site nice pics.

I left a comment thinking Lee might say something since he also doesn't like Sony. No luck, but then this guy commented.{Perhaps I'm just too naive about youtube/internet [like Jerry in R&M (I joke about Fuji GFX but it's not mean spirited)]}. This guy bashes PF and Canada, this is my online family and I have family in Toronto. Why do these people get snarky for no reason? Juneway jungle days ... I miss em sometimes.
