Pentax to Add EFC Shutter to Pentax K1 for Single Exposures via Firmware Update

Pentax K1

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

See my in-depth review of the Pentax K1.

A key disappointment with the Pentax K1 when I reviewed it back in June was the lack of an EFC shutter, which causes loss of sharpness with telephoto lenses.

While the K1 always has utilized an EFC shutter in SuperRes pixel shift mode, that was the only case in which it did so, which was a bizarre and ill-considered design choice given the potential for loss of sharpness with telephoto lenses.

The 2016-09-20 Ricoh Imaging (Pentax) press release states that EFC shutter for single exposures will become available soon via a firmware update.
