Someone - not me - has mocked up the K-01 with some limited lenses - I think it looks great:









I think a lot of the problems people are having with the camera stem from the 40mm XS.

I think the K-01 with a handful of Limited primes would make a great, packable landscape kit. I use manual focus and Live View for this anyway.

Amen to this, except...I wish they'd gone with a tilt LCD. Lower, more stabilized tripod that I don't have to get on my belly for.

Nah... tilt LCD is for the real beginner camera... may have to lower the class/price of this camera.

+1 How a camera looks is WAY down on my list of priorities. The GoPro video camera looks like the cheapest digital camera ever made...yet it's taking the world by storm because of what it can do.
I agree, but this thread and everything on this forum is only about looks because that is all we have. There are no photos and no one has used a working copy. The one person on film handling it was not bowled over by it. I don't see much point in anyone complaining about the opinions of people on its aesthetics. That is about all there is to talk about right now.

I actually like the way it looks. Just a pity it's crippled with no viewfinder.

If they had simply put a K-r inside that case, it would be a winner.

I am the best troll ever.

I mean, look at how long I've apparently been able to get away with it!

Not to mention the 5 pages that this thread has.

Huzzah!

Surprisingly the K-01 looks better and better every time I see it. The designer could have gone nuts. He didn't. Nitpicking is ok but no matter what you think now, he didn't go overboard at all. No way.
Stuff your Huzzah!

ill agree to that. just because conversation started within the tread doesn't change the fact that your opening past was nothing more than trolling, and in the very typical fashion most here have come to expect from any of your posts.
