K-01 reviewed by Monitor magazine

Our top tech magazine reviewed the Q and K-01 (check respective forum). Here's for the K-01:

Scores:
Image Quality 9/10
Design, build quality etc. 6/10

Pros Build quality and interesting design, excellent sensor, SR

Cons Size and weight

Quick summary: Weird, toyish feel that disappears as soon you touch it. K-mount support, good usability and excellent IQ. A bit high price and the rubber SD flappity-flap. Good AF performance. The 40/2.8 XS is also very good.

I'd post a picture, but I don't think many understand Slovene. Ask if you want it posted.

Does that mean the camera feels right in the hand even though it looks wrong? If so, that has been my experience.

This may truly be a "Just Hold A" Pentax.

Sort of. They said it looks "interesting", not wrong. Some of the reviewers there are very open-minded. They gave the K-7 a favourable review in 2009 and one of them owns/owned a K20D.
