Well, as gigantic as that mirrorless is, it is only fitting that it comes with a bag to carry it around.

What other mirrorless has as large of a sensor as the K-01? Oh, that's right, none.

Ordered this same bundle last night. For the same price as just getting jst the body, no reason not to get this bundle.
The bag looks a lot smaller than my camera backpack. It might be better than taking my backpack for when I know I am only going to be using a max of 2-3 lenses.
Don't have too much hope that the included 16GB card is going to be anywhere near as fast as my current 16GB card.

Eh, Leica M9 has a larger sensor than K-01. NEX 5 and 7 both have APS-C sensors. So does Canon's new mirrorless.

None of these cameras required a massive slashing of prices and a bag to entice the buyers.

That's right.

BTW, I think I will get a yellow one (without a bag, of course).

That is news to me. Good to hear it though. Heh, the new Canon is sad. Just watched the review.

Leica M9 is Really really expensive.

The Nex5n is $365 for the body.. Wonder if that is why Pentax lowered the price of the K-01.

In any case, I don't like smaller cameras. I need something to hold on to.

Well, Leica ME, which in essentially the same camera as M9, will be sold at the pricie of $4,995. You can also get a really nice second hand M9 for about $4,000, and it will be even a bit less in the next coming months.

Hm . . .

There were a few compromise that I swallowed with 645d for the price they commanded, and I was ok with that.

I am about to dive in head first to Leica M monochrom. That will be interesting.

If the K-01 isn't on the way out would it be safe to assume it hasn't reached its lowest price point? If that is so and there's no imperative to immediately have one would it be better to hang in a little longer to get it even cheaper? After all every dollar you don't have to spend on the body is a dollar you can put towards a lens as I see it. So is delayed gratification the better commercial option when It comes to cameras?

Great stuff at great prices. I ordered a K-01 more than a week ago, from the pentaxweb store and I hope to enjoy it someday. But UPS says no delivery until the last week in November. How long do we wait? Including the 5 day PayPal transfer, the delivery will be at least 20 days after initiating the online purchase. The wait is killing the fun factor. I will never use PayPal. I will never take "free shipping." I will shop at brick and mortar if possible, and pay for quick service... Well maybe. But for online order, I will pay for next day air or whatever the fast expensive delivery option is. Meanwhile, my undelivered K-01 Yellow is freezing in a UPS truck someplace in Wisconsin for 7-10 more days. TY for caring.

This is why you should shop at B&H instead- orders are processed immediately if they're open and usually ship the same day. Also, their free shipping is UPS ground, not "super saver", so you won't have to wait more than a week for delivery

Camera bodies outdate themselves by the minute. Your body is not getting any younger, and most of you mortals only live once. So me thinks that you should get one now, instead of later.
