My son and his fiance have two cats. One is aloof and will barely tolerate humans. Except me. As soon as I sit down anywhere in their home, wherever she is in the home, she walks briskly to me, tail erect, jumps into my lap and curls up for a nap.

Inexplicable.

The K-01 will make its public debut at their house next week (with K105/2.8) <g>
Just when you think you've summed up a cat, it does something different.

Ahhh, the ugly, useless, crazy and worst Pentax camera ever created K-01.

Look forward to seeing a few cat shots from it.

Oh stop. I'm just not going to go there.

[Edit:] Yes I am.

This design . . . has not withstood well the test of time.

Hey now, you're insulting one of my brood!!

It is rather a strange design. I wonder what was the thinking of the flash shoe over on the right although it might be a lot better there for reducing that 'deer in the headlamps' flash look.

I still keep looking at that yellow & black K-01 and thinking, "It doesn't look bad!"

They do match quite well, don't they.

I just can't imagine wearing something black & yellow to go with the camera and the car.

You learn something every day, thanks.

By the way, what is the 'ramblin wreck? Iowa or GA Tech?

Heh, sorry, "Rambin' Wreck" is Georgia Tech. I don't know the origin of the unofficial nickname, maybe some kind of joke related to their engineering prowess, since GA Tech is an engineering school.

I'm just amazed that they need to use a 645D to take pictures of cats and cute girls. Use a k-5 dammit.

The "ramblin' wreck" is an old timey jalopy car, like a Model T; and I suppose the song perhaps refers to Georgia Tech students being handy with keeping things like cars running and the like. Georgia Tech did, after all, originally start off as the North Avenue Trade School.

Well I don't know the REAL origin, but in the 70's I was a Cheerleader at University of Virginia, Ga. Tech was a rival, and on our side of the field Ramblin Wreck had to do with Engineers, speaking English and alcohol consumption.

And before you issue some broad riposte, I am old enough now to admit I was a cheerleader - and my partner was a cute blonde. So there.
