First surprise.. my Sigma 105/2.8 macro is full frame.. I didn't see it on the FF map on the sticky.. but someone did mention it in the thread somewhere.. so that is cool. Jonig is correct the 12-24 will cover at 18... so that helps as well. I think I will miss the built in flash.. so used to having that.

Yes I saw it :) I couldnt find a shutter count. I may miraculously go to 100000 clicks from 900 overnight :)

So I am sitting here on my couch surrounded by my gear... trying to decide if I should sell my APSC bodies and move to the K-1. I have said for years that when Pentax released their FF body I would switch, but in reality I just haven't used my DSLR cameras all that much over the years. I tend to take pictures with whatever high end pocket camera I posses at the time.. .being a fly fisherman and back packer I just tend to have it in hand more often. I have been a serious photographer in the past.. starting back in 1985 with my first Pentax SuperProgram... and then switching to a 645 for years...until I switched to digital with the k10d after I returned from my first tour in Iraq,,, 2004ish. I consider myself a landscape photographer, but I will also use the new camera on guide trips, I am now a fly fishing guide to take, some high end photos for my clients. So here is what I have,,, my estimate for what they are worth,,please correct me if I am wrong. As you will see my shutter counts are embarrassingly low on my last three bodies,,, feel free to bash me... I was an active duty Marine for 24 years and just didn't have the time to dedicate... I am now retired.. much more time on my hands :)

K7 body-- 989 clicks... might get $150?
K5 body-- 858 clicks.. maybe $250-300
K3 body-- 982 clicks maybe $450-500
Pentax DA* 50-135 $450??
Pentax DA 12-24 $300??
Sigma 105 Macro $300?? fixed thanks to photolady95

Those are the lenses I figure will not work with the K1..please let me know if I am wrong or should keep one to use in crop mode? I also have the following lenses that should work with the K1.

Pentax FA 77mm
Pentax FA 31mm
Tamron 28-75 XR DI
Tamron 70-200 LD DI SP etc etc etc
Sigma 50-500

So if I sell all the APSC stuff I can get pretty close to the cost of a K1 body... have a bit of a tax return to pick up another FF lens if needed...

Sorry I know I am asking a lot here.. but there isn't a pentax dealer in the entire state of Colorado as far as I can tell... any and all opinions welcomed...even to tell me to pound sand :)

I guess my point was that Rupert seemed to be comparing the ist to to the k-5 when the OP really was asking if the k-5 was worth twice the coin of the K-7..therefore rupert's comparison was off the mark.. dont want that be interpreted as a snipe,, I love Rupert's photos and input, some of his posts conviced me to buy my K-5 last week... replacing a K-7...and a k-20 and a K-10..

Lens Choice help
Posted By mrt10x

I have both... Both are outstanding lenses... I often bring both on trips..but if I have to choose one to leave behind it is always the Tamron. I just think the Pentax is sharper, lighter, quieter, more reliable focus, lighter and weather sealed. Of course I also base this on the fact that if I need more reach I will have Bigma in the bag. For weddings I would definitely go for the 50-135.

edit: i have not tried the Tamron as a macro.
and you couldnt pry my primes out of my cold dead hands, for either of these lenses.

I'm in USA. If I buy New Pentax gear from Canada, is there a Warranty or Not?

Well this was based upon a lens purchase 6 months ago.. they used to have different prices for the same lens, now all their listings (i just checked) all have the same price and are listed as a 1 year international warranty. So my data may be incorrect depending on when you bought it. Now my information was based upon a phone call with them regarding how to take care of the extended warranty that came with the lens I bought.. who knows if I will be able to ever execute said warranty.. that being said in 35 years of photography I have never returned a lens for warranty issues.. a couple of cameras,,, but never a lens.

Well what they tell you when you buy is that you send it back to them..then they send it in for repair.

edit: and I would never have a Canadian friend :)

Well because prodigitial2000 and one other shop on Ebay sell lenses at a 5-20% savings over those three companies. Some with a 3 or 5 year warranty.. in fact I think one lens had an 8 year warranty.. all I have to do is ship it back to the company and they will take care of the rest.. assuming they are still in business :)

This is true.. I lived in Japan for a year and thought it would be a great opportunity to find some deals on camera gear.. I was shooting MF at the time.. but no way. Japan has huge fees on electronics sold in Japan.. I could buy stuff from B&H and have it shipped to me for cheaper than I could find it on the local economy.

good post.. i agree.. and for those who say the comparison is garbage, i disagree. A legitimate discussion can be had for two very different cameras.. stupid car analogies aside,,,
