I don't even have to think twice about it, get the K1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a large collection of Takumar's and also old Pentax manual lenses, plus a few other M42 mount lenses and the K1 (first edition). Pretty much the best camera I ever owned, especially for shooting old glass.

Pentax K1 w/ manual lens won't trigger off camera flash

I also had to do this "tape thing" too as I only shoot old manual lenses with my K1 and wanted to use my off camera Godox flashes. (2- AD200's and 2 v860ii's with the Xpro P trigger). The tape thing got old fast!
I normally run my off camera flash kit with my Canon gear but it's nice now to be able to use them with my vintage glass on the K1. !
It does suck being limited to 1/200th and not being able to use HSS, but it is what it is for the time being.....it's awesome having the option to at least now use my Godox lights with my K1 and all my old Takumars!

I leave mine on all the time; it shuts down after a few minutes but all I need to do if half press the shutter button and it fires right back up and is ready to fire. I can see through the OFV regardless if the camera is on or not. Perfect for what I'm doing and how I shoot.

I shoot only old manual vintage lenses with my K1 and I must say that the #1 feature for me is actually 3 features;
1. The amazing sensor
2. IBIS
3. The focus beep!

The focus beep is not 100% accurate all the time but it quickly gets me very near to where I need to be and within a micro second from there I'm precisely where I need to be and pressing the shutter......

I've tried mirrorless for my vintage lens collection and the K1 is much better (for me personally) as I am constantly using the OVF for scoping and finding compositions.....using a mirrorless I'd have to carry a bucket of batteries with me every where!!!!

Battery in the K-1: how long does it last?
Posted By Durf

I shoot most of the time in live view fine focusing old manual lenses and the battery life seems extremely great. I haven't ever did a count but I imagine I'm getting at least 300+ images per battery or almost 6 to 8 hrs when using live view most of the time. I shoot a little bit almost daily and a battery lasts a week or so. If I'm spending a full day shooting mostly in live view I do sometimes go through a full battery and need to put a fresh one in before the end of the day.
I am surprised at how long a battery will last in my K1 when shooting a lot in live view.....

The more results I see with the quality of the Irix 15mm the more I am tempted to add this lens to my kit!
Great shots!
