Re: Should I buy a K1?

Hi Phil, I would second bkpix ‘s message. I recently purchased a kp with a grip and undertook a trip to Antarctica and used my 50-135 almost exclusively. Not the same useage as you have mentioned. However, I could not be more satisfied with the results. Yes the 50-135 is slow to focus but with some technique you can work with it . I have also used this lens with my k511s for weddings (as well as my 16-50). The 50-135 is in a class of its as to shooting apsc. Yes the k1 is a very tempting option and you would go along way with the macro and say the fa77. Cheers (ask your daughter for advice 😀)
