@Mousehill

Thanks for the really helpful review! The sample photos look amazing, even at that small size. Great to see what this camera can do in capable hands!

GabrielZ: Pentax's 'Limited Primes' are they FF or optimized only for APS-C?

Of the initial test shots of the K-1 posted here (since removed at Ricoh's request) some where shot with the 70mm ltd 2.4. It fully covered the FF image circle with only some vignetting wide open.
Fully FF usable.

zakaria: I like the conceive and valued report except the conclusion!!!
K1 is not at league with d610 or 6d .both last camera are entry level cameras and outdated. You even didn't put it in d750 league.
The fair compare is D810 at least both are handling 36 mps sensor
Both are 1/ 8000 shutter speed both are well made bodies not a combination of plastic and ss. Don't forget the Pentax unique features that you already have mentioned.

I fully agree there.

Roadrunnerdeluxe: Oh my god! Is he gone?

Yeah, his current account was created February 17th, just in time to troll the K-1 release.
His last comment was (after someone offering him a K-1) he'd send it straight over to "Will It Blend?", I think that's where the admin drew the line.
On a different note, I seriously believe the blender would lose this one.

Anyway, glad to be back under grown-ups again ; )

belle100: Call me ignorance. I know Pentax produced some excellent MF since the film age. But I don't understand what's the fuss. Why is everybody here so excited about this Pentax FF?

Okay, Jorge. I love you. I can see you are happy with what you like. Good! Enjoy, my brother.

I've been using my Pentax K-3 for three years now, reliably. I get what you are saying but the advantages it offers beat in-lens stabilization, in my opinion, especially the use of legacy glass. But you know what: in the end it's an opinion piece..and experience. I'll let you know how the K-1 fares once i put a couple of thousand shots through it. I know you use a Nikon D600, a great camera. To me the K-1 is the chance to use something similar to the D600 with my Pentax glass with some innovative features, that's all.

Good, Jorge, good. You just stick with that mainstream offering. It seems that's where you belong. It seems you are happy with that. It seems you seem to really like it. Good! Enjoy! Mainstream. Average. Predictable. Not really outstanding. The same old.
People who like to think outside the box will make use of the new Pentax features and use that new angle to produce amazing photos while you troll around forums praising stale technology. I see where your problem is...and I am sure you know, too.

Roadrunnerdeluxe: A very in-depth, very promising preview on the K-1, titled with:

"Pentax K1: Super Resolution Mode Appears to be Best DSLR Quality Yet"

http://diglloyd.com/blog/2016/20160221_1110-PentaxK1-SuperRes-PentaxFlowers.html

I am especially excited since I do take a lot of black and white architecture shots. According to this preview not only does pixelshift maximize resolution but also will give a true tonality readout and thus absolutely superior black and white photos.

The only true problem I see with this camera is that I will want to take EVERY shot in pixelshift mode once I experienced it.

I am excited and can't wait, to be honest.

In reply to:

Midwest: The only full frame DSLR with a stabilized sensor... maybe because stabilizing the sensor on a DSLR (instead of the lens) doesn't make a lot of sense unless you LIKE a viewfinder that has nonstop jitters.

That's not how it works. You look at the mirror through the viewfinder not the sensor.

RedFox88: $1800 and no 4k? SMH lol!

If you want a watered-down gadget bloated camera, the 80D might be right for a lot of people. Even though it might have far better video capabilities than any Pentax its photography qualities will most likely be as lackluster as the 7D II's.

I applaud Pentax for not giving a crap about anything besides making excellent stills cameras. I for one don't care about touch screens, video or print buttons.

What I really love is that Pentax does not cater to the must-have-all-features mainstream-spoiled gadget hounds and keeps it a sleek photo machine with a single purpose: take stills.
