When will the K-01 have a display model at B&H?


A few friends and myself are interested in seeing the K-01 in person, and was wondering if and when B&H would have a display model to handle? I understand that B&H is listing the black version to go on sale at the end of the month, but if a display model is out earlier I would love to be aware of that.

That is lovely to hear. I will try to visit soon to check them out.

From the online order page, there are both the K-01 with the 40mm XS and the K-01 with the 18-55 kit lens. The response shows only the 40mm XS on the demo models. Is it possible for B&H to have the kit lens on the demo model? I ask this because the 40mm XS was optimize to focus on the K-01, while the 18-55mm kit lens is a common kit lens to most of us Pentax users. Being familiar with the 18-55mm kit lens normal focusing speed, we can use that to judge how other lenses will handle on the K-01.

Thanks for your answers!
