I couldn't help myself...

I just acquired a K-01 on a whim. Saw an absolute mint black/silver (not the European version unfortunately) model for a steal of a price and just bought it. Mainly looking to use it with my legacy M glass. Showed up last night, so I haven't had a chance to use it yet. After I bought it, I had some regrets (too bulky, too heavy, etc.) but I have to say that it feels really good in my hand - just the right weight and shape. And I am really happy with the minimalist controls. Other than a point-and-shoot, I have reverted very much to film photography with my LX and ME Super and large collection of M glass. Although I am not ancient, I find most current cameras just have too much stuff for my tastes. Will post photos over the weekend once I have a chance to use it. I can see a collection of limited primes in my future. Dang....

Sounds like a winner for you. I am confused by the "too much stuff" comment however since I find I can ignore almost all the controls options on my K-3 and stick to just what I want to use (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, exposure bias - if using an automatic mode) and very little else needs to be monkeyed with.
