You guys are in for a surprise tomorrow
The only question is whether the surprise can still be good.

Yeah... I can see that surprise coming. $2000, cause it will be premium.


But for $100 I'd buy the 40mm in an instant.

I want the K5 in any case (my *istDs is getting old, though superglue is holding it together), and for a toy next to it... with an optical/hybrid viewfinder, something that makes this like a rangefinder this could replace my DSLR. Without it will be hard. Video functions would have to be extremely good.

So I would guess the body will be in the about $750 and with kit lens $1,000. The Q with kit lens is selling for $750.

We have a winner $749 body only! Youre the first closest.
Got kit price wrong tho but really its the body only that matters for us with pentax lenses already

Photorumors is reporting the following:

Pentax K-01 body only: $750
Pentax K-01 plus the new 40mm f/2.8 lens: $900
Pentax K-01 two zoom lens kit (18-55mm & 50-200mm): $1000

Pentax K-01 US pricing | Photo Rumors
CNET reports the same prices: Pentax reveals high-end, compact K-01 camera | Deep Tech - CNET News

Pentax fans will be delighted to know they won't have to make do with the ill-starred Pentax Q when it comes to higher-end compact cameras.

Thanks to a gun-jumping announcement by camera retail powerhouse B&H Photo Video, details on the rumored Pentax's K-01 have now emerged. The camera uses the relatively large APS-C-sized sensor and corresponding K mount lenses from Pentax's SLR line, but omits the bulk-inducing flip-up reflex mirror used for SLRs' optical viewfinders.

Update 5:10 p.m. PT: Pentax has officially announced the camera, and B&H's specs were spot on. Pentax also showed sharp-looking yellow and white versions of the camera body, instructed us that we're to pronounce the camera name "K zero one," and said it'll cost $750 for the camera body or $900 with a new 40mm pancake f2.8 lens when it ships in March. The lens alone costs $250.

PS: This is my post #8800. I'm on a roll!

I'm glad I was way off in my guess. At this price, this little camera might have a chance.

Yep, it's as bad as I hoped it would not be.
