I bought the K-01 on a whim when the price was first way down in 2013. I took it on vacation to the UK as a backup body to my K30 and fell in love with it. The K-01 quickly became my indoor favorite with the 16-45. It turned out that about half of my photos were taken with the K-01. I like it so much I am thinking of buying a second body to put on the shelf just in case.

Happy Birthday K-01!

Happy Brickday!
I bought the black'n'silver when the price dropped in Australia.
Part of me wants a Smurf Blue/White K-01. But I currently have no spare cash for buying stuff on a whim

I too learned to love my K-01.
One of my favorite cameras.
Boxy and everything.

I just don't use it much.

Happy Birthday!!

I'm embarrassed to say, but i love my K-01 The Manual Focus Beast more than my K200D. And i'd love it even more, if it was yellow

I hesitated when they came out, and procrastinated when they dropped in price. I still want one.

You all make me really wish I still had my B&W 01! Such a handsome cam, with one or two ergonomic foibles. Couldn't help but love it, though. Can't really justify buying it back right now... Hopefully some day!

When I get wishful for something new,
I pull up photos to remind me of what my Panda can still do.

Still, that K-S2 has caught my fancy, but not my finances.

Funny I now have a yellow and a smurf. I did own the silver and all black at one point. Never had the panda in my hands

My K-01 was announced around this date three years ago, but didn't come out of the box until April 5th (I think), 2012. We're not inclined to have an early birthday party but here's a photo of the happy fellow with his Christmas present.

Yellow is special. I gets more comments and smiles when I pull out the yellow K-01.

My only regret is that I didn't get it with the 40mm, that was a mistake, the prices as so low I don't know what I was thinking, lol!
