I can't believe you haven't done the bike test yet! Or have you?

Jorginho: 36 MP K1 costs 40% of this 24 MP FF cam so by the logic some applied a few months ago on some cam that also is a very good sportshooting cam...this is an absurd price...Right?

Ehmmm, i have a K-1. This is a very, very different beast, 20 fps, no blackout and 700 AF points! Wow!

Oh, my! Sony is going after the big boys' pro market! A 400/2.8 must be in the making.

phoenix15: And Ricoh is sleep tight.

They do have 16 MF lenses in production.... But only 4 of those are "D" optics from the digital era, and 7 years have passed since the 645D. Fuji should send them a thank you letter, for throwing their market leader's advantage down the drain.

Yes, can we make a FF-shooters-anonymous forum?
Fuji is really following up with a wonderful set of optics. Their focal length and aperture choices sound very reasonable, very much to my liking. All i need is a winning lottery ticket.... :'(

So it's a Fiesta, and a Punto, Polo, Corsa, Ibiza and a Fabia all in one.... I think i'd rather have a (single) Carrera.

It's almost as dangerous as taking a selfie on a bridge...

Now I'm thinking of all the things my 2-year-old would like to fill it with.... Legos, Barbies, Thomas and friends, complete Playmobil swimming pool set, including the water.... I'd give it a life expectancy of one week at best.

These are stunning, especially for a zoom. Is there a FF wide-to-normal zoom that can do this?

This is really, really nice. Absolutely no LOCA to be seen and extremely sharp (when everything is still). Its ability to isolate the subject is admirable. Maybe we can get one in Pentax mount please? it could use some stabilizing!

In reply to:

ogl: There are a lot of dials and buttons, but no direct control for Shake Reduction. Why?

Because it's much more sophisticated than it used to be 8 years ago (on the outgoing K20D). It spools up in no time, understands panning, knows when to turn itself off automatically (e-shutter, 2-second timer...). The SR in the K-1 and now on the KP is really impressive, much better than on the K5/K3 series.

A Curious Passer By: Dear Pentax,

Please bring back a DSLR that can take AA batteries without the need for a battery grip. I don't need fanciful features, but I do like to have a nice a bright viewfinder, WR and the convenience of AA batteries when shooting at remote places. A modern digital ME super with hyper-M & A modes would be a great start. ;-)

Please no. The last camera i had with AA batteries was a disaster, never again. Disposable AA batteries do not belong in a camera like this. Imagine an iPhone 7 with a nice AA battery compartment....

miles green: On a Pentax K-1, the most versatile would be a 24-70mm f/2.8.

If I could only have one prime and nothing else it would be the FA 43mm f/1.9 limited.

PS: And a 20mm for landscapes. I'm addicted to 20mm.

Regarding SR, I find the improvement to be significant, shooting with a K1 and coming from a K5. SR stabilizes 5 axes now. More significantly, spool-up time is much better and it also seems to understand panning very well.
