The official K-1 to K-1 Mark II Upgrade Feedback Thread

So far I have been happy with the performance of my upgrade, I haven't been able to do the quantity or quality that I would have like to during the airshows here in North Texas as mother nature has been a real mother this last few weeks. It's going to take a lot of PS and LR to try and salvage grey planes against a grey sky :eek::eek:

here are a couple of ones from last weekend, the first one there are two types of aviation photographer cool. 1) "I'm an aviation photographer cool" and then there is this 2nd type "I'm standing out in the pouring rain for 10 minutes to get the photo of a static airplane that I want aviation photographer cool"

Well so far I am pleased, although I can't specifically say how much the AF has improved I have noticed a difference in the AF performance. Unfortunately due to the heavy rains this weekend the airshow and balloon festivals were cancelled. I did get out and shoot some of the flooding in the area, anyone for a bike ride?

My reaction to the way my old K1 is now working as a mkII is pretty much the same as yours and I am pleased with what I have seen in mine so far. I have a studio shoot tomorrow night then the fall airshow season starts up next weekend so I will be looking forward to putting it through 5 weeks of air shows in NTX

Greetings, I have been shooting Pentax's since the 70's and it seems after their highly popular ME Super 35mm camera the seemly never ending changing of owners just didn't know which direction to go. Which is a shame. But welcome to the forum

It was at a point where I could go ahead and send it in (as the email from them indicated) , they received it on the 9th, and then it was listed until the 16th as "on hold for parts" for a couple of days but since the 16th it has been listed as "in repair". 3 phone calls and 1 email have yielded no answers.

Nope, I have called three times since last Wednesday, the woman I spoke with then and this morning said she didn't know and would find out and get back in touch with me. But she also took vacation days last Thursday thru yesterday and didn't have an answer yet on mine. They have had it since 8/9, the person I spoke with on Friday afternoon said she would follow up and have the 1st contact me so IDK

Hello David,

I think you will find the K1 a great camera to start out with. I had also taken a long hiatus but had to shoot a family wedding using film about 13 years ago. After that I made the jump to digital and stayed with the Pentax line as I had used two of them shooting film. I think for the most part the learning curve is easier as you get immediate feedback unlike like the film days.

I just got off the phone with them, they have the boards and my camera has been supposedly in the hands of a tech since Wednesday. But the person making the inquiry for me is off and the one working today can't find out until Tuesday when they will ship mine back to me. I'm just going to have to suffer thru with my K20D until then :):)
