This is not so much an introduction as a re-introduction.

In November 2014 I confess I lost faith that a Pentax FF would ever appear and bought myself a Sony A7. This was not an entirely bad thing as it answered my question about whether FF was worth the investment. Fortunately, I chose to use this with a collection of Samyang primes for which I always bought the Pentax fit, just in case I came back.

Well, the K1 is finally here and it look to be an amazing camera. Mine is on pre-order from the wonderful folks at SRS and I will be going to collect it as soon as I get back from my current business trip in Montreal. So, I am coming back in to the fold and will be happy to return to the Pentax way of doing things. Donít get me wrong, Sony is a technology company that makes some very interesting and important mirrorless cameras. However, Pentax is a photography company that leverages technology to make very usable cameras! I enjoyed my A7 and will even miss the EVF in many ways. However, I know that my photographic endeavours will be better served by the K1 (plus it wonít feel like itís about to break in my hands!).
