    Compared to the Nikon mount, the K-mount seems really large. That certainly helps sensor stabilisation. The sensor can move up to 2 mm up and down (possibly less horizontally), a larger mount helps to prevent vignetting from the mount itself.

      This is one of the reasons you don’t see autofocus 50/1.2 lenses for Nikon these days.

      • harvey

        you also don’t see an AF 50/1.2 Pentax lens.

          We we discussing the size of the F mount. What has Pentax got to do with that? I’m Nikon and Pentax shooter.

          • harvey

            because Apo baby, you made the statement that the size of the Nikon mount was one of the reasons why there was no AF 50/1.2, I merely pointed out that there equally wasn’t a Pentax AF 50/1.2 – probably for the same reason. Or maybe because making a lens for 5 people, or in Nikon’s case, 15, just doesn’t cut it.

      and yet , interestingly, I read an article that said you could mount a Nikkor on a Pentax mount just not in the same position. The distance scale is at the side. And I just tried it, it does go on, just doesn’t bayonet or lock.

    I thought it was pretty interesting to see the K-1 is actually smaller than Canon’s APS-C 7Dii: http://camerasize.com/compare/#659,568 — and substantially smaller than Nikon’s D500, another APS-C camera: http://camerasize.com/compare/#659,648

      Looking at the front yes, but not from the top:
      http://camerasize.com/compact/#659,648,568,312,ha,t
      The Pentax K-1 is much thicker than D500 and the most heavy of the current FF cameras except the Nikon and Canon pro cameras with built-in vertical grip.
      Stangely the Canon 7DIII is even more heavy than K-1, if only by 10g.

    The important comparison is the body with a good kit lens or the body with a good 35 or 50 mm prime lens. If the K-1 works well with the 43/1.9 ltd lens, for instance (fully open probably not so well but at the sweet spot f4-5.6 possibly yes) then it would be a more compact package than the D810 with a similar Nikon/Sigma lens, I think.
