Interesting. Can someone tell me which mirrorless has a better DxO rating? The blog states: "a 16 Megapixel sensor with the 2nd highest DxOMark sensor ratings for all mirrorless cameras".

The K-01 is an outstanding value. With the recent price drop I can't think of any reason not to get one, especially if you already own pentax glass. Perhaps the Nex 7 has a higher DxO score?

Yeah, the NEX7 is the only one with a higher overall score.

I don't really get his recommendation on the body cap lens from olympus. At f8, it isn't really usable as a lens. So what if it is 60 dollars? At least the XS 40 that comes with the K-01 is an f2.8 lens (still pretty slow for a prime, but usable).
