Come on guys...it's ugly

You can't seriously believe that there is any way to justify how ugly this camera is?

I see how there is only one opinion in the world and no other opinions can exist.

I guess you're the kind of guy who thinks pugs are ugly, the volkswagon beetle is ugly, and the harrier jump jet is ugly.

Hey, Hey, Hey! The first two maybe - eye of beholder and all that - but the last one!? Absolutely beautiful! Particularly passing overhead and knowing that its one of yours!

The forum environment is kind of designed for us to have different opinions, that was mine.

My new daughter in law thinks her new Pug is beautiful.......and I mistook it for a K-01! We're all different, aren't we......you know what they say about beauty. It's a damn good thing for most of us!

Pugs are pathetic, the beetle is chic, and the Harrier is awesome. That being said, the K-01 is still ugly. Unfortunately, its ugliness is not offset by its practicality, either.

Not only is it huge and ugly, it's worse than the NEX-5N in basically every way. Why didn't they make it thinner, and then make an official "pass-through" K-mount adapter that can autofocus? Now you have to carry around a K-mount sized camera no matter what.

Then don't phrase it in such a way that puts people who think it looks cool or retro on the spot.

"Man, I think this camera is ugly! It's not for me!" is far better than "God, how do you guys even think it's pretty!?"

I for one don't think it looks good. But I don't think it's ugly - it's just weird looking and people like that.

The Nex-5N is only small with the slow 16mm pancake lens. Put on the Samyang 35mm F1.4 and here is what it looks like:
