That's a Carl Zeiss Jena (aka Praktica) lens! Now a real Carl Zeiss, that would be porn.
Well, there's no accounting for taste. I would have to say the CZJ Zebras are sexier, even if it's shallow to favor outer appearance over inner ability (tho' the CZJs are no slouches).

Now, here's a completely different European/Japanese combination:

The amazing aspect of the m50 f/1.4 is that it seems to perform better on the K-01 than other bodies I have (*istD and K20D). I can only assume that this is due primarily to my greater ability to focus precisely. Perhaps improved software is a factor (more natural saturation and contrast enhancement) is a factor. However, this "improvement" is not nearly so apparent in my other lenses (and in fact zooms such as the Tokina ATX-24-40) clearly lose out due to the higher resolution of the K-01 sensor. In any event, thought I should post a photo as this lens isn't among those posted yet (I do see an f/1.7 though).

Fraternal twins:


K-x with FA 50mm 1.4, K-01 with FA 28mm 2.8. I expect the 28mm will be on the K-01 a lot of the time.

White on white:


K-01 with DA L 18-55mm & Gordy's strap

I just picked up an FA 28mm 2.8 and it really rocks on the K-01.

Nice pairing. So, I think you are a fan of Pentax's different color approach?

Showed up today:




If I had the choice I probably would have bought yellow, but after seeing the black and white in person I actually prefer it.

Definitely, colours are fun. I wouldn't want my main DSLR to be anything but black though. Sometimes I want to look serious, sometimes I don't. My K20D is black, and my K-3 will most definitely be black.

I don't understand the infatuation with the yellow. I think it's absolutely hideous. White looks alright, black looks lots better, but the best color we didn't even get here -- the black and silver.

Here's my new yellow K-01 with M50 1.7, shot with my black K-01 and the kit 40XS. I just love these cameras. They had no idea at the time, but they actually made the M lenses for the K-01. I keep both of them in a very small camera bag, with different lenses mounted- makes a fun and compact kit!
