Looks like a lump of dust on the 2nd- easily fixable by the looks of the background through
The lump of dust is actually a swift flying into the shot at just the wrong time. The slowish shutter speed has rendered it is a blur.
I have certainly considered removing it to improve the overall effect, but I decided to keep it for authenticity. Mistake?

I have just taken the K-01 with my DA 10-17, Sigma EX 17-50, DA 40, FA 50/1.4, FA 77 and DA 55-300.

As a more compact option
So great shots, but that set is far from compact

Wnoerful shots with the K-01. They show off what can be done with the camera. Not to say that can't be done with another camera but image quality is outstanding. Once accustomed to the form I actually rpefer the K-01 over smaller compacts since I can hold it like an SLR.

More later

Thanks people. For what it's worth, the bottom three were taken with the Sigma EX 17-50/2.8 HSM. I have become very impressed with the quality and versatility of this lens.
Also, as you can probably guess from the photos, it was pretty darn wet. The K-01 coped just fine, and the rubberised grip worked pretty well.
