Well, I finally did it...
6

After 9 months of waiting for a price break on the K-1 (and seeing a price increase instead), I found a resonable deal on a K-1 with the 28-105mm zoom at B&H, so I pulled the trigger. The camera, the lens, and two Sandisk 64GB Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I cards will hit my doorstep next Tuesday.

I anticipate a lot of fun playing with my extensive collection of Pentax FF lenses in upcoming weeks. However, I suspect that the 28-105mm zoom will live on the camera most of the time. It will be interesting to explore the great low-light capabilities of the K-1.

I've been shooting with my Fuji X-T2 and 16-55mm zoom almost exclusively since September, so it will be great to get back to my Pentax roots!
