Looks beautiful and sounds like it will take great photos and be a pleasure to use. I really like how they went off a retro look! The $1299 price tag is a bit steep if you ask me, but at $400 under the fuji X-pro I think this camera will still be a big hit. Then again, it's $550 more than the K-01 and the IQ won't be as good.
