Then it wouldn't be a K5.

I meant technology-wise.

K-01 has a mirror =P I didn't know that myself until someone pointed it out. Hard to believe huh? Such a small camera yet it packs an APS-C with a shutter.

EOS 10? You mean - Canon EOS 10D - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Or do you mean the European EOS 10 that was a film camera..?

The model I'm referring to is the RT. It used a pellicle mirror. Modern Photography said it degraded lens resolution compared to a mirrored camera.

Then no - the k-5 would still be miles and miles ahead of the RT in technology.

The current equivalent to the RT would be the Sony SLT cameras with their translucent mirrors. Supposedly the Sony SLTs have very good image quality, but the loss of light shows up in the higher ISO images.

Description found on PentaxForums :
QuoteQuote:
The PENTAX K-01 is an industry first. It is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (MILC) with an APS-C sized sensor (16 x 24 mm) that takes the full range of legacy K-mount Pentax SLR/DSLR lenses and accessories as well as the new XS series ultra-compact lenses. Recently introduced mirrorless cameras from other brands with APS-C (or smaller) sized sensors have lens mounts incompatible with the DSLR/SLR cameras of those brands. Pentax has once again shown its commitment to its customers by not obsolescing their lens collection.
