Exactly one year ago I had the opportunity to become one of Pentax Ambassadors. Before that I honestly didn’t know much about Pentax. What I did hear, was that they had a full frame DSLR. A few days later I received the Pentax K1. The first big fieldtest was on my trip through the Dolomites at the beginning of summer. Together with the Pentax K1 and the 24/70mm 2.8 lens, things just couldn’t go wrong. The rough hikes and high peaks were the perfect location to test my new friend.
As a nature photographer I always want to see as much as I can. So I don’t want to bring my tripod with me every time, but with Pentax’s Image Stabilisation on the K1 this wasn’t a problem. While I was in the Dolomites there was a huge storm coming. It started to rain and hail but the K1 is water & dust resistant so I was quiet comfortable.
