Maybe Dumb ?'s

Is there a shutter lag like on P&S cameras?
I have a F 50 f1.7 lens do I really need the 40 that comes with the K-01.?

The shutter in the K-01 is pretty quick. The camera generally performs very well compared to compact cameras. Perhaps not as fast as equal or better mirrorless cameras, but it's quick.

The 40mm lens is for a different purpose than your 50mm. It's much much thinner, and can make the K-01 pocketable. If you don't care about size, then it won't gain you anything from your 50 F1.7.

One thing to keep in mind is that you can sell the 40 that comes with a kit for more than you paid for it, so you can try it out and sell it at a profit if you decide you dont want it.
