glad to be of service...now practice saying beer without the 'r'
"Some Ocker"? Beer without an 'r'? I resent your negativity mate. I'm an Australian and Strine isn't my lingo - I'm no Ocker. If any people on this planet have a major speech defect it's Kiwi's.

First... nice that Pentax come out with a APS-C size mirrorless camera. At least we see what is possible with Ricoh-Pentax.

2nd, this camera is ugly. I can't believe it. It's like half GXR, half retro Pentax, a strange hybrid. Damn Mark.

I rather they make it a GXR k-mount module if it is not WR; or just go all the way for a retro look. This look is like an old nanny wearing a miniskirt trying to look young. >__<

No way is the K-01 ugly, now the Ricoh GXR is ugly, really ugly. This K-01 looks fantastic to me.... I guess I must be in the target demographic

I think it looks pretty cool, looks way better then others in its class. I can understand it is not for everyone. Change is good

Apologies, no offence intended. Lame attempt at humour.
Ocker just means Aussie over here and it all sounds like strine to us.

Thanks.

"Some Ocker" sounded dismissive and I got kinda roused because we aren't all like that.

PS: Ocker is in fact a negative term describing a jingoistic and unsophisticated Australian who speaks Strine. A Yobbo, a Bogan.. an idiot etc

Spending more time looking at it... it is actually the tube-like thing that protrude out to accommodate the dial destroying the look. Its like a factory exhaust pipe, or like an old man smoking a pipe....and really no need to be there.
I hope it sell.... so we have a chance at a FF camera.

and.... the new DA 40 lens is ugly too compare to the 40mm ltd. I was really hoping the design by that guy will beat every mirrorless camera in the market.

Getting back to the pictures: Are these real pictures or 3D mockups?

It looks to be a K-r replacement in some respects, due to limited features, so I would hope there's another big surprise announcement soon as well as this. Or perhaps this is an elaborate hoax.

There's no DOF preview on the On/OFF latch either.. maybe there's a function button for that.

The more I look at these shots the more I think it's a fake. They look like 3D renderings. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

My first reaction (and those that I showed the pictures to) was: "OMG, Ricoh has painted Pentax with its ugly brush!"

The on /off switch looks to be anoying in its squareness under your shutter finger

I'd also say it looks to be more of a replacement to my beloved K-R.

I say that with a disappointed tone. Looks GREAT for a mirrorless, but TERRIBLE for an SLR.
