Try to get a partial refund and get it repaired. 720 is a bit to much for what would be a refurb. Shops sell occasions with limited warranty for about 650.

Basically? A full frame K-70 24mp but with the K-1 AF. Of course only do that when you have a K-1 successor that is priced a bit higher than the K-1 is now with improved AF. There needs to be a reason to get the more expensive model.

The K-5 isn't a very quick focusser in low light. Maybe try it in daylight conditions or under strong artificial lighting. The DA 50-135 is also not known for speedy focussing.

Congrats caliscouser and Thanks Tas. Didn't even notice the crooked horizon, but the K-1 can level it for you as long as you use the indicator in the VF ;)

It's bent. Probably took a fall or something. I wouldn't take any risks with the K-1. You could open up the lens to see whether you can bend it straight again. But only do that if you are good at putting things together again as well as taking them apart.

300mm is a difficult focal length for legacy glass. Most lenses are large and cumbersome and have mediocre contrast and sharpness and will consequently sit on a shelf most of the time. Better to use a 55-300 or 70-300mm modern zoom. I am very interested in the 70-300ish lens on the Pentax full frame roadmap. Hopefully it will be both fast (AF) and sharp.

Fuji Rumors about GFX100S and new Sony 100mp sensor.

More pixels will certainly improve sharpness and detail, but I would find a 53.7mm x 40.4mm 100mp sensor like in the Phase One XF 100mp more interesting. 50mp is also more than enough when you want to take a MF camera to the streets, shooting without a tripod at higher iso's

Takumar 200mm F3.5, Jupiter 21m 200mm F4 are my best 200mm MF lenses. Both extremely sharp and much better than my Meyer Orestegor Not very flare resistant though. The Super Multi-Coated-Takumar 200mm F4 is ok too, but my copy has a wonky focus ring, making accurate focussing hard, so I don't use it much. It has better flare resistance due to a smaller front element and SM though.

Yeah sr in video mode! Even though I don't do video :p Also a 4:3 crop mode (even though I won't use it)
What I would really like is a way to activate the back lcd status screen with a single button press or the function dial. It really is a pain to have to select it every time coming from screen off mode.
