The K-01 goes to Italy!

My first extended use with my new K-01 came on my recent honeymoon to Italy. I really enjoyed the big and bright lcd as well as the detail the camera was able to provide.

Funny story- I handed my white K-01 to a guy to take a group picture during a cooking class and it had the 40xs on it, he asks "how do I zoom?" When I tell him there is no zoom he shakes his head and says "weird washing machine camera" lol. I guess the white color and prime lens threw him off.

Some pictures from the trip can be found at the link below. Not sure how to put pictures in the body of the message. C & C appreciated

Cool! Me and my K-01 are heading to Italy on the 28th. Heading to Naples and south.

Did you use a fisheye or in camera processing for the building shot?

chucuyuco, I love that ceiling shot! Let me see if I can figure out how to embed it myself...

Seems to work. On the page's picture, click on share, then grab the BB Code and paste it in your PentaxForums post.

Cool lens. The widest I have is the 18-55 kit lens I got with my kr.. Though I am looking at a vivitar 20mm I saw at at a store. Reviews were mixed but I was impressed by the pics I took in the store. Actually they had a used 10-17 I think...

Nice shots! I made a similar trip with my GF in 2008 (Venice, Florence, Cinque Terra among others). Unfortunately the year before I went into Pentax DSLRs..
