    No- I'm saying I can't plug my nikon glass into a pentax k1, which is the issue. Manufacturers (for good business reasons) make their mounts proprietary.

    Ha! All my lenses are "G" lenses with no aperture ring- won't it be impossible to shoot anything less than max closed-down without electronics?

    supposedly allows manual & aperture priority, but I can't verify that.

    Yeah, aperture priority because it expects there to be a manual aperture ring.

    If it could control the aperture blades it would also allow shutter priority and/or full auto modes.

    Every time I look at it and it specs. I want to order one. Pentax lenses are much cheaper than their Canon / Nikon counterparts not having to have IS/VR in the lenses. I actually priced a camera, grip, and 4 lenses that I would want. $6,600 :aiwebs_016: :allteeth:.

    I might get away with adding a Nikon to the collection, from the wife :aiwebs_016:. But a camera and lenses with Pentax on it, would be a tad harder :aufsmaul:. :allteeth:

    So, my AF and AF-D lenses would work on a Pentax body then? Hmmm :barbershop_quartet_member:

    Though I do have that Pentax ME Super now with the 4 MF K lenses. :dejection::allteeth:

    If you can't get creative enough to sell it, you might need to turn in your man card or take a refresher course :allteeth: I find when I'm failing to sell the wife, on something a gift card to her favorite jewelry store will do wonders on improving my closing chances :sneakiness:

    Well if I'm buying a Pentax and lenses. The gift card for the wife will have to be to the local Hallmark store. :345:

    Does the battery really take 6 hours to charge? and bad life?

    Does it really take 3-5 seconds to delete a photo?

    Focus points too centrally located and slow focus?

    These are the common downsides...I don't believe it.

    I was watching one on Ebay today. I came really close to clicking on the button. Don't really need it. But.....
