I was wondering what the communities impressions of the Pentax K1 is ... diglloyd: Pentax K1: Impressive Innovation Unmatched by CaNikon Lloyd chambers has already made the point that it's pixel shift technology is producing better tonality than any medium format he has seen - for black and white landscape it may well be the best thing going. The description from those that have used it is that it is producing a foveon quality with better colour accuracy and at significantly higher resolution. Leica M monochrom beating? Possibly for certain types of work - still, landscape etc... Although Pentax are claiming that it can work with some other moving subjects, something I'm eager to see. diglloyd - February 2016 I have to say that this camera is probably the first DSLR in years to get me in any way excited. There is quite a lot of new and innovative technology - led's to highlight controls working in low light, astro tracer for shots in the sky, the ability to make 2mm adjustments to he sensor plane, effectively a diet tilt shift (???) . I get the impression that Pentax have really thought of the working photographer here. Its a pity that they didn't embrace full mirrorless with this camera - but that's just a personal preference for an EVF. If Sony come out with an A9 featuring the same sensor shift high resolution mode, astro tracer, EVF, similar build quality, anywhere near the price of the K1, then they could just take my money! The one area that Pentax do not look so hot on is their available full frame compatible primes. Their 2.8 zooms look excellent (designed by Tamron??) with great reviews on IQ and reasonable pricing. However on the prime front it looks fairly dead if you want to use modern digitally optimized lenses. I was wondering if anybody else was interested in this camera as a second landscape body or even considering it as a primary?
