DigitalRev K-01 Review

Not sure if anyone has seen this but DigitalRev reviewed the K-01 a few months back. Humorous, fun-to-watch and pretty much spot-on:

Kai is a "Closeted Pentaxian". It's a known fact. He just hasn't come "out" yet.
I think if he comes clean, he's afraid he will lose his job or be discriminated against in the Canikony circles. It's not for me to "out" him, and I support his wishes to stay in the closet for obvious reasons.
I'm on DigitalRev all the time, and I'm "out" there too.

Of all the Internet, he is the only one who routinely works a Pentax product into his reviews.

Kai definitely has a soft spot for Pentax.

If he doesn't actually review a Pentax, he's had numerous "shout-outs" when it comes to Pentax.

Kai's "Pancake Lens" shoot-out was/is classic.

It's funny... Kai not only seems to love Pentax (maybe he just has a soft spot for underdogs) but he's been called out a few times for being critical of Sony. I love his stuff.

Really? Because his K-r review was pretty.. well, he didn't seem to take the camera seriously, the review was just silly. Unlike when he reviews the canikon entry level cameras.
And I didn't know they reviewed the K-01, dunno how that slipped past me. Thanks for pointing it out! Have to say, as silly (even pointless) as this show sometimes is, its the most entertaining photography show i know of. The few ones on television never seem to really grab my attention.

Check on his "tossing cameras" review when he has a short dig (I have to presume friendly!) about Pentax. I guess the filming camera (during the typhoon) was a K5.

I think this is why.

My very first SLR was a Pentax, and I still have fond feelings for the brand as a result - Kai wong

Someone should mention in-body stabilization (even with older lenses) and WR, as two big reasons to consider Pentax.
