K1 Mark I still worthy today?

I have the K1 since it came out in 2016 and did not do the upgrade as my style of shooting did not require it. It is still a great camera and I use the DFA24-70/2.8 with it, along with my other primes of AF SLR days.

Try using the map Pixels feature in the menu. AFAIK, hot pixels don't appear on the photos but dust and stains do. you may need to have the sensor cleaned.

Poll: Do you install a UV filter on all of your lens

I have filters on all my film era lenses as the only modern len I have is the DFA24-70/2.8.

I have damaged 2 filters when I started out with DSLRs and the OPTech strap broke and camera and lens fell flat on the front element. Thankfully I had the filter and only had to replace filters only.

Great purchase.

Use them on the Kr but get a FF K1 to use with the wide angles and you will have fun.

If all else fails, send the FA*85 to NSB Tekunos in Japan and they can fix it. Run by ex-Pentax engineers and technicians after being let go by Hoya.

My friend had his FA*85 repaired too.

Three Amigos: Completing the Collection in Black or Silver?

I bought my 43 silver in 2010 and then 77 silver 2 years later. The 31 silver came 2nd hand in 2015 when a buddy let go to move to m43. Other buddies who had the black amigos had the paint come off and the silver did not suffer the same fate.

Used them on the K7, K5, K30, K3 and then K1. My son uses them with his KP.

We both enjoy the amigos.

Nowadays, the current production models are black only and all Assembled In Vietnam.

At least Pentax AF SLRs can still be repaired in Japan by NSB Tekunos. This company is run by former Pentax Technicians and Engineers who were let go by Hoya. I had my MZ-S mirror motor gear replaced by them in 2018.

I managed to get a brand new MZ-S in Singapore in 2008 and was told it was sitting on display shelf since 2006. It was selling for USD$1,180.39 body only and since I knew the owner since the 1980s, I got it for USD$368.872. He had his tech guy clean away the melted rubber as it was seal in a wrap to prevent discolouration. It was the Titanium Silver version too. I still have the camera which had the mirror motor failure in 2012 and only got it repaired by NSB Tekunos in Japan last year. (A group of Ex-Pentax Engineers and Tech guys, who were let off by Hoya)

The FM10 by that time is no longer being sold but in the early 2010s the FM3A was being sold as a pro camera in Singapore for USD$1,106.61 body only.

You're welcome. I hope you get the DFA24-70/2.8 or the Tamron 28-75/2.8 is also not a bad deal. 4mm difference on the wide end. If you can get your hands on thePentax FA*28-70/2.8, it is also very usable on the K1. There are a few in Singapore who use the FA*28-70/2.8 with the K1.

You look like someone who was using a crop sensor camera body BEFORE the K1. The K1 is a Full Frame camera, thus they do have UWA DFA 15-30/2.8 and the normal DFA 24-70/2.8 lenses to cover Ultra wide to short tele.

The DFA 15-30 is 2mm wider than the Sigma 17-35. The DA*16-50/2.8 is a crop sensor lens and is NOT usable on the K1. In 35mm FF terms the lens FL translates to 24 - 75mm thereabouts on the K3, K5, K7, K30, K50, K70, KP, etc. . .

For the Sigma 17-35 on a K70 the FL is 25.5mm to 52.5mm. When you put the Sigma on to the K1, 17mm is 17mm and 35mm is 35mm.

For myself, I have the Samyang 14/2.8 for ultra wide and the DFA24-70 for normal use.

I believe that the other have been trying to explain to you the difference already.


Cheers!
