Interesting view: Get the yellow version for street shooting 'cause it looks non-threatening!

Nice and honest review. Although it did not take into account the recent price drop, the comments show that the reviewer did a solid job and did use the K-01 for what it is designed for. That is, to take stunning shots.

Thank you for sharing.

I actually just realized the 40/2.8 XS is "a cut-through of a tree trunk" after reading about biomorphism. This line made me realize it on wikipedia:
"Taken to its extreme it attempts to force naturally occurring shapes onto functional devices, often with mixed results."

I agree that somehow the K-01 promotes playing with settings. I have tried several things that could have been tried on my K-5 yet never were. Still seeking my favorite af button combo, at which point i will adjust my k-5 to match. Neat!
