make sure to change the mount of 50-500OS before putting on your K1.
The old version of mount will put a scratch on your K1.

nice shot.
I found a lot of your shot are taken at around 150mm.
300mm+ is really not as important as I thought.

Pictures are impressive.

put it on a tripod, try +10 adjustment and -10 adjustment.
I think the difference is huge.

for those using 50-500OS with K3 or K1.
Did the lens mount scratched your body somewhere between pentax logo and the lens mount?

I think it does not happen on K5 series.

the Q won't turn on

I had the same experience a few months ago.
After leaving the Q unused for an extended period, it does not turn on.
I had 1 OEM, 1 aftermarket battery
I tried all the possibilities and it won't work.

After 2,3 days, it turn on and work as normal.
For the next couple days, sometimes it works, sometimes not. (both battery are fully charged)
This situation goes on and off for about 2-3weeks and go back to normal. Never happen again.
I now turn on the camera at least once a week.

Mine did the same, I tried a few ways some suggests (different SD card, firmware, different battery) but none of them works.
I am towards the opinion that a capacitor, which stores the time data, died in the camera.
