Pentax K-1 Replacement - October 8th, 201610:55 PM
Well, after about a month, the Pentax K-1 is finally back in my hands from B&H. It just happened that today was my friend's grandma's 80th birthday surprise lunch party, so I took a couple of lenses and tested out this K-1.
Unfortunately, the focusing system struggled quite mightily in the restaurant. It wasn't THAT dark in there...but, like I said before, that's one of the things you should be aware of if you get a Pentax. All of these pics are just off by a bit. Enough to make the picture pretty much unacceptable if you were shooting for a client.
I really don't know how I feel about the K-1. On the one hand, it's what we've all been waiting for - a Pentax full frame. On the other hand, it has the usual Pentax weakness, AF, and then some (slow card write speeds, weird dial system, etc.). Pentax did release a firmware update that gave some new interesting featues, such as electronic front curtain, but I don't know if I am convinced.
