Took the K-01 on a recent trip

Just a weekend trip to Florida, but the K-01 handled it well. Only have the 40mm 2.8xs currently so it was a little limiting, but nothing major. I do need to get a strap for it that won't dig into my sunburnt neck too bad.

Are you kidding? Did you really do these photos with the K01 ?

Those are some handsome pelicans, give that last one a beret and a espresso and he'll look positively European. Great stuff.

That's a fine job for just a single lens and camera!

He's new to the forum, and has yet to realize that the K01 is a excellent camera. I wouldn't listen to the so called webpros who shut it down for it's looks, underneath the funky exterior lives a K5.

I've sold my K-5 after getting this camera.

Oh I don't think this forum is the sole provider enlightenment


To the OP:
I like the parrot and cloudscape images best.
I do think the first image of the pelican on the rocks is spoiled by aggressive sharpening though.

Did you look at the originals and the 2048's on Flickr?

K01 Isn't the K30 a marriage between K5 and K01 ?

Yes I did. I was pretty happy with it myself. I was flying lite and it was between the K-01 or the Fuji x100s for this trip. Since I brought the Fuji with me last month, I decided it was the Pentax's turn.

I traded into the K-01 not too long ago(about 1.5 months ago). I haven't taken it anywhere with me outside of daily travels.

I really enjoy using the Pentax myself, and I will eventually get some other K lenses, right now I'm just very invested in Canon.

Hope everyone liked the pics! I use a Canon 40mm 2.8 often, so the Pentax wasn't too foreign for me. Only once during the visit did I wish I had a zoom with me.

I'm new to the world of Pentax but trying to learn up! I love the K-01 and the fun exterior of it. I use the Smurf brick myself, so it gets some looks while out.

I'm still adjusting to Lightroom edits with the images from it. Some can seem sharp, but I try to make a few creative tweaks and then keep the plain images saved as well.

He wasn't shy at all. He was on a mission, a fish mission.

A few spares




Daughter zoning me out. She actually had fun using the K-01 just as much as I did.

Nice photos.

I like the K-01 (my wifes) and think I might steal it a bit more as my K-5 seems to be developing a lot of hot pixels at the moment ?!?

I find the K-01 does a great job with exposure, AF accuracy and produces images that are a bit sharper (due to weaker anti-aliasing filter I believe).

Pity I probably wont be able to use it with my Tamron SP 70-200 f2.8 though (this lens hates Live View).

I sure did, you can clearly see the sharpening halos and the minimal noise ISO 800 should produce is now enhanced by it...
