Hi all,

Just a quick question. Anyone know where one can hire a K1 in the UK?
It's not listed as an available option on Srs. Did ask the question but had no reply from them unfortunately.
Any help to point me in the right direction is much appreciated.

looks like you are wanting to try it on the mountain on the planes

SRS normally reply very quickly, so clearly something has gone amiss.

I would give them a call and talk to them about it.
Best regards, John

TBH i'm pretty surprised that Pentax and SRS aren't offering the K-1 and corresponding D-FA zooms on their hire scheme.
I've already asked twice about renting the new 70-200mm for a couple of upcoming weddings.

For those whom are interested here is my response from Doug (Srs)
Fingers crossed. 🤞

We will enquire with Pentax UK about getting one on the system.
We will let you know what they say.

Thanks
Doug

Would be very useful to be able to rent a second k-1.
