A few test photos from the first day with the k-01

Nothing special but I had to get out and do a few daylight pictures using the kit 40 mm lens. So far I'm impressed with the IQ of the camera and the lens. My only minuses so far are #1 the screen in bright daylight and I had a problem which is probably the memory card. After taking a half dozen photos I got an error message "unable to save photo" I tried 3 times and got the same message until I turned the camera off and pulled the card out and put it back in then it worked far.

Image-wise, I think you've got a keeper. Delkin Devices and Hoodman make some covers and eyepieces that might work to resolve the sun vs screen issue.

It appears that the K-01 and its near-sibling the K-30 are finicky about SD cards- although every card that my K-01 has griped about, other cameras have had problems as well (just not as consistently). It especially dislikes micro-SD cards in adapters.
