K-1 shake reduction compared to earlier camersa

The shake reduction system is unbelievable - ridiculously good. I have got handheld and standing up results with a one second exposure that are pretty much indistinguishable from tripod mounted. I employ my best standing still and breathing techniques, but even so one second is a long time. Just crazy good.

No. I don't need to sharpen with the K1 and a good lens. The mist naturally softens the background.

This with the old Sigma superwide 24mm, which works very well on the K1:

Very pleased to have taken the plunge and can join this thread. Very impressed with this camera. My Ltds finally make sense. Early start at 31mm:

K1 price hike in EU

Putting up prices is not a great strategy to encourage sales so it just goes to show how well priced it was originally and how tough the camera business has become. Maybe it will be reduced back down for Christmas and also that hideous US import Black Friday (second only to trick or treat). But it's difficult to see it coming down much from launch price anytime soon.

Luckily I got in just in time (well a few days late but I cut a deal).

31/43/77 sure, what about 20mm?

I don't know, I haven't got those so I can't test them. Suspect the K will be better than the M but I'd want to know about edges and corners before going for one.

The corners on the M20 aren't good enough on the K-1, unfortunately.

Will give the 12-24 a try at 18mm+.

The Sigma 20mm f1.4 would be excellent if only produced in K mount - a perfect lens for night skies. Grrrrrr.

They will only do a mount conversion for a lens available in that mount, unfortunately.

I have just won an excellent looking full frame wide angle in a photo competition. The Sigma 20/1.4. How brilliant would that be on the K-1? Ideal for night sky photography too. The catch is that they don't make it in K mount. I'm sure this lens would appeal to K1 owners so could everybody please petition Sigma to make it available. Thanks, then I can get my free lens:)
