For me it's FA31mm, DA*55mm and FA*85mm that do most off the tricks.

My latest new lens, the DA10-17mm fish eye is also wonderfull on the K-01.
I am trying to talk myself into parting with the money to get a DA 10-17 fish eye. I think it would fill the remaining gap in my lens collection. It is good to see that you find it a good fit on the Brick.

I loved the DA10-17 back when I was using the K10D a few years back (before my temporary anti-Pentax kick) but I found 90 percent of the time I was "de-fishing" my shots in Photoshop so when I started using Pentax again with the K-01 I picked up the Sigma 14mm f/2.8 and that has been working perfectly on the K-01.

I would also recommend the DA70 or FA77. The DA70 has faster AF on the K-01 but there's just something that I love about the FA77.

I just bought a Transcend Wifi SD card to experiment with. I got a 16GB card for $40 which is a better price than the same capacity eye-fi. I haven't fully completed my eval yet but so far it seems to have most of the necessary bells and whistles. I've really only tested the ability to connect directly to a tablet and transfer files which is does well.

I didn't know that trancend made such SD cards..wow, this would be a better alternative to the Eye-fi if they get it right!

The Gordy strap, I am not familiar with and what rangefinder viewfinder would you recommend?

Thanks to all the suggestions..keep 'em coming. =)
Gordy straps are nice and cost around $20. I strongly recommend, for anyone with even average male sized hands, the Long or X-Long strap.

I have an old Tele-Wide from a Rangefinder that I like.

Those Gordy straps looks like it will make the K-01 look better than just ordinary straps.
For the tele-wide adapters, I hope that I can actually buy one.
Thanks

No problem. The tele-wides are getting harder to find. Try looking for a complete kit with the two adapter lenses - I got all three or a descent price (but what do I do with the cheezey adapters?)

Bundle them with the appropriate 52mm step ring and sell them as kit lens-Lomography filters?

I think I went too far...
I think it just became legal to carry one of those on an airplane but you might want to check first.

Got my K-01 white and have been playing with it for 2 days now.
I would like to thank Adorama for this.
I'm still kinda feeling my way as to what I might really need for this camera.
I bought a silver FA 35-80 and it doesn't really go with the white color..my bad, I should have went with a plain black one.
As to the other accessories, I'll see what I'l get once I start using it.
I have quite a hard time focusing with the lack of (visible) points and the green square just goes to focus wherever it wants.. =(
