So, is the leather case for sale in the UK? I've got a friend that could snag me one if they actually exist.

Try as I might. I can't tell from the internet. if your friend can snag one, could he snag two?

Sure. But will it be the MAP price or the MRSP?

I knew I saw a review somewhere that claimed the K-01 came with a fitted leather case. Couldn't track back to the review, though. That case, or something similar, would be perfect.

O-CC120 Fitted Case for K-01

Per the Pentax Webstore Customer Service Department:

"Dear Mr. Compton:

Thank you for contacting PENTAX.

The O-CC120 case for the K-01 is only available in Japan. PENTAX in the US offers a sling bag case that would be compatible with the K-01 and accessories. . . . . " and then a link to the webstore for the Sling Bag.

In a second email the Pentax Customer Service representative suggested this $10 Optio leather bag originally for the Optio MX line.

PTX-L80 Optio Gadget Bag saying it works well with the K-01 and XS lens..

I was pleased the representative took only about 18 hours to get back to me, of which 15 hours were not during business hours. (IOW, about three working hours) and thought to make an alternative recommendation.

Report on the Optio Case received today from Pentax Webstore. It is a very nice, leather case for an Optio compact camera and its charger, with secure pockets for cards and other accessories.

A K-01 might just fit with no lens mounted and one DA Limited lens would fit in the small area set off by the Velcro divider. My camera does not come close to fitting front-to-back with the DA40 Limited mounted, so I guess the Rep was wrong.

Back to the drawing Board. Right now I'm using a small Kalimar padded bag I originally bought in 1984 for my MESuper, M-50/1.4 and AF200S Flash. It holds the K-01 w/ DA40 Limited and the DA55~300 in a divided compartment.

My Bad. Go Here Pricing @$300 decreases the utility a bit, though.

ok pricing is obscene (though being a "designer" item it doesn't come as a surprise. may as well just go into a Louis Vuitton shop and get a $1400 messenger bag and be done with it

I'm using the wontancraft paratrooper, the K-01 fits perfectly in it with a small prime attached and two other primes or zooms with the dividers, because the blocky shape of the K-01 you can stack it like a lens in the bag, def where the shape take its advantage is in a camera bag...
