how dangerous is the K 1 and K 1 II

K1ii is addictive. I fell in love after playing around with it for 5 minutes in the store. It took me a year to put pennies aside for dream to come true.

Yes ! it IS dangerous.

Once you use it for a few hours, resistance is futile....... you will get one !

The 300mm f4 works fine for wildlife but I prefer to use it with the K3ii.

My 100mm macro work wonders on the K1ii......

LI90 Battery Recharing Question
Posted By devouges

I did some digging but I cannot find an answer to this.

I am wondering if it is harmful to leave the battery in the charger when it is fully charged ?

I have 2 batteries and sometimes, I forget to check if the one in the charger is fully charged and it may be a few days before I check.

Thanks
Gary

When I started photography in 1968, the ONLY lens I had was a Minolta 50mm 1.4 ( with the SRT-101). When I went to Pentax, with the K10 apsc, I rapidly found out that 50mm on apsc is just not the same as on FF. So I started filling my piggy bank and finally got my K1ii. I still use my K3ii with my 300mm F4 but mostly for birding and wildlife. I did not get the new DFA 50mm 1.4. I am a bit intimidated by the size and weight of that beast. I still use the FA 50mm 1.4 and it, well, sorta "satisfies" me.

The feeling when holding the K1ii, which is a bit taller than the K3, gives me the "grip" I feel good with without needing the battery grip like on the apsc models.

When I look through the viewfinder with my 50mm, I just get that 1968 feeling when I held an SLR for the first time. (sweet memories :) )

AE Metering button on K1ii
Posted By devouges

Views: 409
Hi everyone,

Question using the K1ii.

When looking at the AE Metering icon in live view, it shows 3 different "images" in the icon, The multi-segment shows all green,

However in the viewfinder, it only shows 2 "images" or no image.

IE: press the AE Metering button and change the setting via the rear e-dial and it will show 2 different icons then none

This leads me to believe that when nothing is showing, it is using the multi-segment ( when I go in live-view, it does show multi-segment in green)

Is this normal ? The manual does not say anything about this.

I was just trying to change the metering mode and was looking for the icon and could not find it till I looked in the manual.... then after using the e-dial, I could see it changing.

Thanks
Gary

I fully agree: when I first took that K10 in my hands so many years ago, it was love at first sight (well...grip) . And the menus are so much easier to access rapidly..... Buttons are so well layed out and easily accessed.

With all the modern photo technology we have, why is it not possible (yet) to get a photo of the virus ? All we get are hand-drawn images or a fussy red blob with spikes on it that look like WW2 water mine.

I know that there exists ways to take pictures through a microscope with certain attachments but are those viruses so small ? I tried to find out something about the SIZE of that virus and all I can get are world statistics and stuff like that.

Anyways...… just curious.... happens when you are in the 70s and are locked in for over a week :(

What’s stopped me from getting a K1
Posted By devouges

Hi,
I have a K5ii and K3ii. K3ii is mostly used exclusively for birding and wildlife.

I have a battery grip for each one mostly because I like the "grip" feeling: my pinky was always looking for a place to lean on.

I got a K1ii last fall and it came with a free battery grip but I do not use it: it is just too big with the K1.
The extra few millimeters in height that the K1ii has gives me that comfortable grip: feels super good.

I live in the Montreal area. If you want to try it out for a few hours, send me a private message and we can get together.

Be warned that you WILL get the K1 fever and you will feel feverish until you get your own :)
