The K-01 is a wonderful body. A bit of tweaking (second control wheel and EVF, etc) and it could have been a great one. It's a pity so many short-sighted and closed-minded haters dumped on it to ensure its early demise.
Ditto from me too!

K-01 doesn't look so bulky anymore, especially compared to this MFT camera.
I totally I agree with starbase218 its not fair comparison

Not really a fair comparison though, since the K-01 has no EVF.
I'm not a camera designer, nor do I play one on TV. However, considering how the K-01 already has a funky shape because of its need to provide proper distance for the K-mount, I suspect that they could make minor thickness changes in the curently-thin areas, rearrange the innards, add an EVF, and still end up with a camera having an EVF within the general dimensions of the K-01.

With respect, that's ifs and maybes. This is about the size of two cameras that actually exist.
