Anyone looking to sell a K1? Finding it hard to look beyond a K1 and 24-70 f2.8 combo at the moment as a landscape and city shooting kit!

Tried a K-1 a couple of years at the NEC Photography Show, and soon concluded it would rather too heavy for me, and was with only a standard Kit zoom!
K-3 II, K-3 and K-30 (now running the Hacked K-50 f/w, so it thinks it is one of those ), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!) - and now a K-70 from SRS

K1 is not a heavy camera. Lenses also can be quite light. Ofc A7 + Samyang 24mm 2.8 (96g) is un beatable
I suggest two sets for for light-travel.
SMC Pentax-F 17-28mm F3.5-4.5 Fish-Eye 255 g
SMC Pentax-F 35-70mm F3.5-4.5 235 g
SMC Pentax-F 70-210mm F4-5.6 555 g
K1 + battery 1010 g
spare battery 100 g
total 2155 g

Second is less flexible but with primes:

SMC Pentax-FA 20mm F2.8 255 g
SMC Pentax-FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited 345 g
SMC Pentax-FA 43mm F1.9 Limited 155 g
SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited 270 g
K1 + battery 1010 g
spare battery 100 g
Total 2135 g

Don't forget the A or F 24-50. Love that combo, and it's compact...
Cheers! Marc
