Latest Review Posted Pentax K-01
Couldn't resist "The Brick". Lack of a viewfinder didn't bother me; I made one for when/if I need it. The K-01 is very similar to my K-50, so I can switch between them almost mindlessly.

Mostly, the K-01 (white) is my "art" camera for my old glass; using focus peaking--since I'm a Lady Geezer and need all the help I can get. The enhanced audio is great for music videos; I use it mostly for art shots, portfolio work, experimental, etc. The K-01 recreates that great feeling I once had of slow afternoons with my Spotmatic-F, my first love.

The K-50 (red) is primarily my "craft" camera--zooms, auto focus, digital features, travel, eBay, family fun, work records, etc. It fills a need for speed and dexterity and actually gets a lot of use.

Both cameras are a delight, and so feature rich that I'm sure I'll never manage to explore them all; any complaint I have is minor by comparison. I've managed, on a budget, to accrue quite a decent collection of gear which I'm sure I couldn't do with another brand. For example, the "kit" lens I got with my K-01 was the 40mm f2.8 XS! What a sweet little lens that is, and what a deal the package was! I hope Pentax keeps developing such cameras for loyalists like me.
