I like the K-01 for what to me is a classic look. It reminds me of a Leica without spending 9 grand!
My aging eyes also like the idea of focus peaking. I am starting to save up!

Marc Newson might take offense at this statement about his revolutionary new camera design.

Shake reduction is one of the things that brought me to, and keeps me with, Pentax. If Canon and Nikon started offering in-camera SR, then I might give them consideration for my next DSLR (if they could exceed the value proposition of the competing Pentax model, which I find doubtful based on history).
Per any lens variation; I'll take the built in Pentax SR over anything that Canon or Nikon offers.

I rest my case.

And I think the K-01 is absolutely gorgeous - you can't tell from the pictures - go see one in person; you'll be impressed.
I believe you failed at your attempt to troll Canon, sir

K-01 really looks ugly to me, but pics look good so who cares

You are not supposed to marry any of them. If they take pictures...

Nikon has entered the ugly race as well..

Of these three cameras...







it's Pentax by light-years, IMHO.

You're free to be COMPLETELY WRONG!!!

For whatever reason the K-01 is strongly visually appealing to me and the Canon and Nikon have no visual aesthetic value. They look like a used bar of shower soap.

I understand I'm an outlier but I hardly ever carry either dSLR anywhere any more - just the K-01. The dSLR just isn't appealing in any way.

Isn't the Nikon 1 Or J or whatever it's called more similar to the Pentax Q and not the K-01

Sensor size is between the two, usability (button layout) seems to be closer to the Q, i.e. more usable, sensor size is between the two.

Touch screen NO THANKS! I can't stand the iPhone screen when I'm trying to show off photos or the iPad for that matter. Forever cleaning.
Agreed!

Nikon continues the trend...

Gut-wrenching hideous. Ugly on a whole new level. Redefines WTF...



I can't believe it. This from the company that gave us the F6, one of the prettiest cameras of all time.

Wow....

Cheers,
Cameron

I think the Pentax K-01 in yellow/black is a really stunning, good looking camera. I just wish the video qualities were better. Pentax just needs to fix a few things on it. That's all.

It's unfortunate that we're unlikely to see something for the Pentax K-01 such as the grip that available for the Leica M Monochrom. Or perhaps a somewhat more dedicated version of a hotshoe mounted optical viewfinder.
