I was out yesterday with the K-01 and I think I finally found its achilles heel.

We have had a massive amount of snowfall this year and I was up in the mountains getting stuck and taking pictures. I had the LX and the K-01 with me and after the first attempt with the K-01 I just put it away. There was so much brightness from the white snow that the screen was literally washed out and I almost couldn't see anything on it. Kind of an unusual situation but I won't be taking the K-01 on this type of outing again.

I've had a few similar issues with my K-01 in extremely bright light, but it has been only a few times. I have been so impressed with my K-01. With my 21 limited or the 40xs it fits in my jacket pocket. Since I got mine for $175 from the Marketplace in basically mint condition it was a tremendous deal. I have never used the KS-1 although I considered getting a KS-2. I have my K50 that I use along with my K3. I am happy with all the camera bodies, but that sensor on the K-01 just seems to deliver colors that amaze me.
