Wow. Just checked on eBay. You can buy it for $500 new. Sold!!
I remember buying a 100mm f2.8 WR Macro from ProDigital2000. Got hit with a currency conversion fee, but otherwise it was still a good price at the time.

You had that email too? He must have sent it before going to sleep or something. I assume he wrote a timer on the site to have the article display in however many hours until the official time, but sent out the email early.

I must admit that the DA40XS kills the looks of the camera; it looks indeed WAY better with a more normal lens on it. I'll buy it!

Yes, that would do nicely... now someone photoshop a DA10-17 FE or a DA 12-24 on it.. I'm sure there'll be a few who could epoxy a DA15 Ltd to it as well..


There you go!

The MFT's is a nice system but their sensor can't match the K-5 sensor and the lenses don't match the DA limiteds.
Yes, the MFT sensors cannot match the K-5 one, but a camera is not just about a sensor and the K-01 cannot redeem itself just by reusing the very good sensor of the K-5. As for the lenses, I am more intrigued by what is available for MFT than by the DA Limiteds.

Looks rather nice with the other lenses. Thanks for mocking them up!

It's the lack of a viewfinder that will stop me getting one. While I'm tempted to get one for my wife, she wouldn't be happy limited to a prime, and she'd find it too big to carry with a zoom.

Still, BRAVO Pentax. The only APS-C mirrorless with in-body SR. Plus the mirrorless with the broadest lens choice.

Looking at that list, it's clear that the K-01 isn't a mirrorless camera but a K-5 without a mirror.
