I received a tip that all Pentax K-1 pre-orders will be shipped with a free D-BG6 battery grip ($199 value) similar to the free XQD card and reader that will come with the D5 (I would take this with a grain of salt, I am still in the process of establishing my Pentax/Ricoh sources of information).

The Pentax K-1 is expected to start shipping on April 22, 2015 in the US:

  • cheap ff with free grip? what is there not to love? good job pentax/ricoh

  • TinusVerdino

    sounds too good to be true

    • I agree

      • sperdynamite

        Too good to be true because what if you also pre-ordered a grip? You have 2 grips now? That would be pretty lame. Though I will say Pentax and more companies could incentivise preorders this way.

    Those grip contacts look awfully fragile…

    • Roberto Duran

      Every Pentax grip have the same kind of grip contacts and believe me.. are not fragile at all.

    Will this camera work with analog-era Pentax lenses?

    • Roberto Duran

      yes it is.
