KP look and feel

yesterday i received an almost new silver KP with 300 clicks with a new WR 18-55 for almost half the price from new. Could not resist..i needed a body anyway, because i sold most of my lenses and my K-1. But i kept my 77mm, 31mm, 15mm, 21mm, 40mm.
My first impression only from looks and handling (15min impression) : amazing build quality as used from pentax.. but it cant be really called compact DSLR :D i am a little spoiled also from the GR iii
Anyway, looking forward to check my first shots :p

so i found a good deal, to trade my Pentax K-1 (3 years old) and get for 350$ more the K-1 II. What do you think? for one, i have again 2 years warranty.. 0 clicks and 10% better AF. Better deal then the upgrade service :cool:

i can tell you for sure..even if some people are arguing for the new GRiii at the moment, they will probably get it anyway.. :lol:
i am 90% satisfied about the announcement and i am excited about the new sensor.. just worrying that i have to shoot @higher ISO (instead of 1600-3200) for getting a filmlike snapshot :p

---------- Post added 09-28-18 at 12:45 PM ----------


this looks almost so big as the K-1 with the 31mm combo.. But you have the LR integration here, yeaahhhh, preorder on the way (joking).. probably for the price you could buy 2 K-1s and 2 FA 31mm.. :D

So the old accessories are compatible or not?

3. i think i read somewhere that they had a new battery registered for the GRiii
4. from the photos we can 99% assume that there is no flash.. and is missing from the prod.description aswell
6. 99% not..else it would be mentioned in the product description

i hope that we can use the same accessories.. plus some more
Anyway, an official statement and some more infos, sample photos would be nice:cool:

what lens you are using on the K-1? and you say you like the IQ of APC better.. you mean the JPGs or edited raw files?

i agree with the innovations you are mentioning.. though you are talking about a new product. The GRiii is supposed to be minimalistic and clean. All the video features dont fit in this little body and would change the ergonomics dramatically.. you think they can squeeze the 4k features in a small body like this? what about overheating? i am just saying.. :lol:
The GRiii is not supposed to be the most practical-allround-zoom camera..but it is unique and the best in its class for handling, quality, stealth.. ;) the efforts for creatiing a ricoh GR with zoom have not succeeded in the past..and will probably not succeed if they tried, because of the competition and ricohs slow development.

i suggest you watch the youtube video do understand the GR concept. Yes it is not a RX100..and yes, they still cant fit the viewfinder with keeping the size small..it is now even smaller then the GRII. It can be sure better fitted in your jeans pocket then the RX100 and kicks the butt of the sony lens/sensor :cool:

the GRII ist still my favorite camera and the lens sensor combo is just fantastic. There is no better engineered compact camera around. Early 2019 for the GRIII? then there is enough time to start putting money aside :-) and the GRIII is slightly smaller? what else do you want? my only wishes are: better autofocus in low light and i hope the GRII accessories will fit on this lens too

I hope i can use the existing GR accessories (hood, wide lens) on the new gr. I agree with the WR and hopefully we get the KP sensor, incl. pixelshift. A mini video improvement would be also welcome 😀

just keep in mind about QC issues. I received two copies of the 15mm F2.4 and both of them were not good, either decentered, either infinity focus was not correctly adjusted. The guys from the service were friendly though

I have the new X-T20 camera with the 18-55 as a lightweight second body to my K-1. I owned a K-3 before. I bought it mostly for 4k videos (family videos) but wanted a camera that can take decent pictures aswell (that is the reason i didnt bought the G80-85 from Panasonic, which uses a 4/3 sensor)
My thoughts: The AF performance of the fuji is really good. Now i mostly use AF-C with face detection which is working very well. The K-3 cant keep up here. Even with the K-1 i cant keep tracking my son so good as with the fuji x-t20.

Hi Mauro

yes, try again with Liveview though i have a feeling that this is not a good copy. My first copy was decentered and i am waiting for a new copy arriving this week. The first batch of pentax mounts was unfortunately not very good, i read from some forum members that they did have to return their copy aswell.

Cheers

myself, i used the 645z for 6 months and was used to the big body.. today i prefer using the K-1 with the grip. If i want to save weight i use the K-1 with the DA 40mm :p
For compactness maybe the KP will suit you better ;)

cant comment on the sigma option, but the irix is a good affordable uwa option. Though, probably the first copy of the irix lens could have decentering issues like mine.
I dont think pentax will provide such an uwa lens option with large aperture like the irix, but i could be wrong ofcourse ;)

if you are happy about the results of the sigma why get another lens? maybe first wait to see what pentax will ofer :)

Thanks!
