Pentax K1 On the Way

See my Pentax K1 wish list at B&H Photo.

See my earlier discussion and coverage of the discussion and coverage of the Pentax K1. Review coverage will go into my review of the Pentax K1 in DAP; see my February review of the Pentax K3 II to get an idea of what pixel shift technology can do.

The Pentax K1 has some innovative features, but is it too late for Pentax, given the dearth of high performance K-mount lenses, particularly in a market that is hot to trot with mirrorless? Where is pixel shift mode for Sony anyway?

The Pentax K1 and various lenses are now on the way from B&H Photo as follows; I expect this stuff to show up next week, perhaps even by this weekend. My initial focus will be on the quality potential of pixel shift mode (see in-depth coverage of pixel shift mode of the Pentax K3 II), because the full-frame K1 holds the potential to beat the pants off the Nikon D810 and Canon 5DS R if everything is done just right. Pixel shift mode is however likely to be useless with moving subject matter, or moving camera, so it may be more of a studio setup thing, or absolutely still subject matter outdoors.

Update 6 May: unfortunately the shipmment went out UPS ground and will not be here until May 11. And then I have to travel on Friday/Saturday the 13/14.... bad timing. But I will be showing lots of good stuff with it.
