Yes, and it's looking even better in real than in pictures. No, I ain't got one, but saw it in Japan. I'd be screwed if Pentax comes out with a 645Diis, it'd be almost impossible to resist......if it comes in blue, that is.

Todd,
Pentax could easily sell thousands of these to every freshman at Carolina, every wannabe Tarheel fan on the East Coast, and every parent of a new baby boy. Only problem, no one sells Pentax in North Carolina despite logos on the B&M's websites. Maybe Jim Malcolm needs to contact the UNC Chapel Hill bookstore.
I sent the email Day One.

Nonplussed a few Blue Devils a bit though.

It looks really fine with the letters in gold on the 645D camera. That makes me wonder, why Pentax can not have "Pentax" in other colors than boring white on the major part of its camera models?

Yes! Black text on black body. Or just other user specified texts like "Canon" or "Nikon".

+1
The K-01 was 'crippled' compared to other mirrorless options in the market. It should have had an EVF option, articulating rear LCD, excellent video, and a a Pentax-made slew of alternative lens mount adapters.
+1 - it would have had a much broader appeal with an EVF. But I also think it would be technically possible to make it significantly thinner and lighter while retaining the K-mount. If they made such a lighter camera with an EVF and a compact kit lens retracting into the "empty mirror box", they would have had a serious competitor for consideration by e.g. my daughter who is now switching from (her stolen) K100D to a NEX-6. She's been using the K100D a lot with only the DA35/2.4 mounted when she needed a lightweight combo, but the NEX-6 with the Sony 35/1.8 will be much less bulky than that.

I got two! and please tell me I don't need this one. I'm crazy over the K-01's performance with manual lenses.
Me, too! K-01 + manual lens = some sort of photo-nirvana. I wouldn't mind picking up a 3rd K-01...

Well, I think that there're 4 colours of the K-01 now, so you need two more bodies
