Beautiful closeup, Mr. Bassie. I love the K-01's ability, with magnified focus peaking, to hit focus right on with manual lenses.

I just happened across this thread and was so impressed with the shots posted here that I decided to pick up a used K-01 from KEH.

The prices are dirt cheap right now and with the prime lenses that I've already have, the decision to pick a K-01 up seems to be a no brainer for me.
I'm looking forward to seeing what my three amigos can do with this little gem...

Looks like a way better festival than what we get down here in south Florida. Great colors going on in these shots!
Thanks to you both! I don't know if it's the November giveway, but the activity here seems to have picked up - lots of great shots all around!

KEH is a super fast shipper!! I ordered a K-01 yesterday and it came this morning Fedex!
I really, really like this camera so far although the AF is a tad slow but the image quality is superb...

K-01 / FA31 limited

Rondec, I very much enjoy your photo postings in this thread and hope that you continue to use the great K-01 for many years to come. Thank You.
Thank you for the kind words. It is definitely a fun camera to use and small enough with a limited lens to go just about anywhere.

Congrats on the K-01! Have you updated the firmware to v1.04 or 1.05?

Yes, definitely update ASAP if you haven't already. Really makes a difference. I think you'll really end up liking the combo of small primes with the K-01.

This has been pointed out before but is worth emphasizing that this little k-mount camera give incredible value. You get the full range of Pentax lenses in a compact, relatively light body which is just fun to hold. With small AF primes it is unmatched for size and photo quality. I am so glad I took a chance on it when the bargain prices first appeared. It has served me very well. At current prices it is a steal.

The software was updated to v1.05 as soon as I received it.
So far all the 3 FA limited lenses work great as well as my beloved DA15 and DA35 Macro with the K-01.
I might lean towards the DA35 Macro with this camera because of it's great IQ, size and macro capability...seems like the perfect fit. It's also a very good FOV walk-around lens.
The FA31 is also incredible on the K-01.

Thank you. FA 31 has a certain amount of magic that helps.

People talk about a 3D feel with photos. That last one of the misty river and setting/rising sun does it in a completely different way. Outstanding!
