Is that 27-28 seconds with a full buffer, or one shot?

things are happening, though. I'm using 64 gig Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-I
cards, rated for 90 mb/sec write speeds. The are much faster cards out
there though I don't know if the K1 can take advantage of higher speed
cards (or even if it takes advantage of this card.) If you really are
experiencing several minutes of write time it may be the card.

Looking at three that happen to be out, all are SDXC C10 and the 95s are marked U3.

Sandisk Extreme Plus 80 MB/s
Sandisk Ulta 80 MB/s
PNY 95MB/s

Overall I agree with your comments. File saves are on the slow side and
the AF point configuration leaves a lot to be desired. AF in liveview
mode is very slow - verging on unusable when shooting macros. There's
room for improvement to be sure, but still a fine camera.

Yes, in just about any other case, it's an amazing camera.
