PDN Pulse already published their Pentax K-1 article online – check it out here:

“Ricoh has made its long-awaited foray into full frame photography official today with the launch of the Pentax K-1 DSLR, which is due to arrive in April for $1,800 (body).

The K-1 sports a 36.4-megapixel full frame CMOS sensor with no optical low pass filter and a native ISO range of 100-51,200. The image sensor can shift to provide 5-axis image stabilization with up to five stops of image correction, per CIPA standards. It also supports a Pixel Shift Resolution mode (similar to the one we tested on the K-3 II) where the sensor shifts by one pixel over a series of four images which are then merged in camera to create an image with less noise and more accurate colors.”

The technical specification and US pricing I reported earlier are now confirmed. The official announcement is tonight around 11 pm EST. Stay tuned for detailed coverage.
