Received my upgraded K-1 today, a day earlier than expected for a turn around ín less than a week. Four business days to be exact. According to the explanation of repairs that came back with my camera: “ autofocus test, check, recalibration and realignment; clean (internal-external) and optical system; general test, check, clean and repair all functions and systems”. The firmware was at 1.02.

The description of parts used: “main circuit board; replaced SR logo with II logo; certification seal”.

Went through settings to make identical to my K-1 MII. Will see about testing this weekend.

My order was placed in June, 2018 and instruction was not to send in until contacted to send. I did receive the initial email confirming my order with a pdf attached with instructions with about proof of purchase and how to send. I periodically called and corresponded via email since with update on expected parts availability. On 1/4/19, I received an email that they received parts and to send in my camera. You can also refer to my previous post to this thread.

I just checked to see if there was a change in the status of my upgrade. Sure enough, the status is now "Shipped Confirmed". I checked my UPS account and see the tracking information for delivery this Wednesday afternoon, 1/16/19. This is quicker than I thought. If it test okay after I get it back, I will be very impressed.

I received an email on Friday, 1/11/19 that my K-1 was received that morning. They called me as I had instructed to get a new credit card number than the one provided when I submitted my upgrade request last June. I see the status is "out for repair" which obviously means my camera is in the queue for the upgrade.

Well, I finally received word on 1/4/19 to ship my K-1 in for the upgrade. Shipped it on 1/9/19 for delivery on 1/11/19 morning delivery which later today. I put in my request back last June, 2018. Here is the email:

Hello Aaron,

We got our first allocation in last month and have a few extra kits available. We also have another shipment on the way to us that should arrive by the end of this month.

Please coordinate with Sheila Banes, cc’d in this message to have your unit sent in for the upgrade.

Thanks,

Dave

I called Precision on 9/20 to ask about an upgrade request I submitted on 7/15, but have been waiting to get contacted to send in my camera since the summer. I was told to wait for parts to be available again in the next few days. Still waiting. Got all the necessary papers and a box with packing material ready to go.

DXO PhotoLab Support of K-1 II RAW Files

I belief it will support the Pentax proprietary RAW file format, PEF. I normally shot in the DNG RAW file format so I can only assume PEF is supported, but confident in saying PEF is supported. However, I recently had some shots from a Canon RAW CR2 file format and DXO PhotoLab opened them fine. Hence, I am expect the same for PEF. BTW, I also noticed that all the lenses currently supported with the K-1 by DXO will be supported the K-1 II for the scheduled 10/18/18 date.

DXO PhotoLab Support of K-1 II RAW Files

I just saw today that DXO has updated information on supported cameras. The K-1 II is now listed in addition to the K-1. When the K-1 II is selected, you are informed that "Your camera’s RAW format is scheduled for 10/18". I got my K-1 II back in May and still have my K-1 that I haven't upgraded yet. I previously requested the K-1 II with all the lenses that I currently have. I do plan on getting the new DFA 50mm F1.4 lens within the next few months so will request that now as well.

Monitor Protector Glass for K-1
Posted By agkchang
Replies: 37

I am using the Phantom Glass LCD Screen Protector for Nikon D5300 / D5500 or Pentax K1. Applied very easily. Ordered from B&H for $34.95. Highlights:
• Tempered Glass, 0.2mm Thick
• Impact- and Scratch-Resistant
• Oleophobic Coating Resists Fingerprints
• Silicone Nano-Adhesion Layer
• Silicone Fills Scratches on Old Screen
Overview:
Safeguard your Nikon D5300 / D5500 or Pentax K1 camera's monitor against light impact and scratches, while maintaining a bright and clear view, with the Phantom Glass LCD Screen Protector. It's made from 0.2mm-thick tempered glass, and features a precise design to ensure that no image distortion occurs once installed. A proprietary silicone nano-adhesion layer permits simple, quick, and bubble-free application. This unique layer also helps to fill in any minor scratches on the LCD screen itself, resulting in a cleaner, more consistent image than before. An oleophobic nano-coating has also been applied to the front of the screen to resist fingerprints and permit more effective cleaning of the screen. Additionally, in the event that the screen breaks, it will remain safe to touch with no glass shards or sharp edges.

I plan on upgrading. I had a great experience with Precision in repairing my K-1 when It has the mode issue that occurred during a 4-day Photo workshop.

---------- Post added 03-11-18 at 08:11 AM ----------

I want to mention that Precision received, repaired, and shipped my repaired K-1 out in a week so I was without for about a week and a half. No problems since. Was nice to have gotten it back cleaned and checked.

K-1 Mode dial failure after 1 year warranty period

I remember reading information from Precision after I submitted the request for a warranty repair for this same. I can’t remember if it was on the Precision website or in an email from Precision. I sent them a copy of the purchase from B&H, copy of the extended warranty, and the receipt of the purchase of the extended warranty as documented. My K-1 was about a year and a half when the mode dial failed during a photography workshop on night photography and star trails. Fortunately, I was shooting in anyway. Got my repaired K-1 back in a week. Very pleased with the service, quick turn around, and no problems since. Only cost to me was the expedited shipping and insurance to Precision in CT. I did make a couple of calls to Precision and monitored the status on their website.
