I think all 3 are exactly the same and all K-01 but obviously Pentax will be releasing three different styles of the camera body and likely more colors overseas like in the past.

The link from above. There is a black and silver body with da40 xs, and the dial knob is on the left side. It looks more like dslr. Is that a ltd edition of k-5?


If you mean this, yes, according to the thread it is the Silver LTD edition of the k-5

Yes, the DA40 XS is the smallest interchangeable lens ever.

I thought it was reported earlier that XS was only compatible w/ K-01.

That's surprising, considering the original rumors about how it wouldn't be backwards compatible..

...also, the Q kit lens would like to have a word with you

Apparently that's not the case.

Maybe it is just me, but I am more interested in the lens than K-01 . . . .

LBA Pandemic outbreak, the beginning

What we have here is a potential pandemic of LBA re-infection.

Kudos, Pentax - but only if you follow through with more glass-virus for us!

The design looks pretty cool. It's a shame it doesn't have a viewfinder. Otherwise it could be an amazing camera for a ski trips..small and durable. I even like the yellow version

No kidding. There I thought I've been cured. The thing is too small not to buy. As for the body, not so sure yet.
