I'm still a proponent of the RX1. I'm personally tired of lugging heavy lenses. I just want to make great pictures while on vacation.

Sony RX1 - Finally Did It!

I don't think it was malicious on their end. It was from Amazon themselves, not a reseller. It's just someone at the warehouse didn't go through the proper checks before releasing it back in the wild. I'm sure the other 4 people that bought cameras that night had functioning units.

Back luck I ended up with one of the duds. I've purchased a Sigma 30 1.4 K mount from Warehouse deals before and it was in great condition.

Sigh...turns out my luck is pretty crappy. I got a DOA unit, with a E61 code (non focus lens) which seems to be prevalent. The lens wouldn't even focus manually. I even tried as some had tried online that dropping it from a few inches would loosen the mechanism, thus no luck. whoever tested the camera at Amazon, didn't know what they were doing. The camera would turn on and you could see an image and release the shutter, but the lens would not auto focus and the error code flashes.

What was worst, was trying to return the unit to Amazon. Generally, they're pretty good at returns, but time it took 3 long phone calls. At one point, they wanted me to send it back on my dime because it was over $1500. I was incredulous, but in the end I managed to get them to send me a prepaid label and it went back the same day I got it. Needless to say, I only had the Sony RX100 with me the whole time in Seattle.

Now I'm wary of getting an RX1 without warranty. At least when Pentax lenses fail, you could still manual focus, not with Sony. :P

BTW, anyone from Seattle or BC want a good deal, head to the Seattle Premium Outlets. There's an RX1 with 2 years accidental warranty for $2300. I was tempted, but need to make sure my Amazon refund went through before purchasing another camera.

Yeah, they must be returns from people that purchased from Amazon and they can't sell as brand new. They must have released a batch as there were 5, 1 in like new condition for $1693 (which I wanted but waited too long) and 4 in very good condition for $1658.

I'm not even sure how I saw the deal, it might have been an ad from another forum that detailed that price.

I already have the RX100 and think that's it's an amazing camera, can't wait to see what this FF can do.

I found an amazing deal on Amazon Warehouse deals for $1658 and pulled the trigger! That's a savings of 41% off the regular price. There were 5 available when I was looking at it, then within 30 mins 2 were gone. Then this morning all were spoken for, so you have to be fast when you see a great deal!

I'm picking it up on the weekend and heading to Seattle to test it out. Can wait to try out this mirrorless FF! :D

I'm with Docrmw, these are just entry level DSLRs that we've seen before, no game changers. People have to stop drinking the Pentax Kool-Aid and see what other companies are doing and what Pentax is not. I picked up a Sony RX100 before my trip to Europe 3 weeks back and is it ever an awesome camera.

The Sony RX1 and RX100 are game changers in their space, these K cameras are not.

I was hopeful one of them would have been a FF camera. I'm seriously contemplating a Nikon D600 after all these years with Pentax.

The K-5 is in for repairs at the moment, but when it comes back I think it'll be on the shelf more than the K-01. K-01 with Ltd lenses is an awesome combo.

K-5 - Serious shooting, telephoto use
K-01 - Everyday use and travel

One annoying thing is that somethings the lens' screwdrive is quick and other times it's super slow, like it's out of power...

Anyone know what's up? I'm guessing when it's going slow it's looking for focus?

I get this problem in video mode on my K-5. It just happened recently, so definitely some circuitry that has failed. Good thing Canadian K-5s come with 2 years warranty. I'll be sending it in once I return from Hawaii in May.

I wouldn't settle. If you search the forums, there are numerous people that had this problem. It's a bad seal, if dust can get in, imagine what water would do?

Send it in.

I had the same problem. It's a bad seal on the rear plastic/glass screen. Make sure they replace that seal if you send it in for repairs. The first time they only cleaned the dust and didn't replace the seal/rear screen and the dust came back.

It being as dodgy as it is, I can't believe Pentax is now selling this lens for $1499. For that price the Canon 24-70mm (ver 1) blows it out of the water optically.

Anyone feel the same way about the 16-50?

There are days when I use it and the results I get are great. You look at the images and it's such an awesome lens...

Then there are days when you shoot with it and it's terrible. You think about selling it.

It's just probably my lens, but the sharpness at infinity focus is terrible. Focus overall is kind of all over the place too...
