A Second K-01

How many have bought a second K-01?
After noticing that several members now have two, it started me on a dangerous thought train, I'm afraid. I now have a nifty yellow body on the way!

My sister jumped on the $299 Groupon deal recently, so while I don't own two, I have two at my disposal.

I have a black one I bought on Black Friday and I ordered the yellow one with the 40xs from Amazon when the price was $316.00. So far I'm having a lot of fun with mine hope to have the second one soon.

My first one is black, so at the very least, they will look great together on the shelf or in the bag!

I've been considering a swap, letting K-5 go for another K-01 and cash. Just bought a new car so belts will be a notch tighter for a while, and the K-01 really is capable of everything I need. And it fits fine inside my parka for WR needs though WR is valuable in western Oregon!

I wouldn't go so far as to replace my K-5 with it, still need the WR, the stability of an OVF, and other niceties much of the time...

I'll most likely pick up the white K-01 in the coming month or two, I originally ordered the white one but was sent the yellow, didn't send the yellow back because it looked great lol... but I still want that white one and since the k-01 is my main camera having a spare would be smart...

Just ordered a yellow K-01 with 40XS for $316 on Amazon. They are out of stock right now, but I'm in no hurry as I already have a black one.

A second K-01? No way, that would be silly!

...

Hey, check out my handheld 3D rig:



Two K-01s w/ kit lenses, a flash bracket, a 'broomstick' handle (removeable for tripod use), and a remote.
