Hi, apa kabar?

greetings from jakarta.

i am an agnostic in this camera-worship things.

convert from religions like ricoh to canon to olympus to fuji, and try to adapt with different systems like P&S, SLR, mirrorless.

Not so long ago found an old Rikenon 50mm lens that belonged to my beloved late-father (hoping to find a joy of taking pictures like he did), and looking to find a new home for this little gem. Somehow, i have a hunch that K-01 will suit with it.
What do you think guys?

Welcome to the forum, as for your lens question... it may be better posted in the lens section of the forum, where your more likely to get a bigger response than here.

But, yes the K-01 will use that lens perfectly. And I agree that camera brand worship is nonsense. Camera A just came out with a brand new model that takes pictures in pitch black. Camera B comes out with one that does it six months later. Then Camera C now does ........

I happen to use Pentax, not because it is the best, but because I have it. The sole advantage that is of any concern to me is that I can continue to use my old stuff with my new camera. My new camera was bought in 2007, and is, of course, no good anymore. Except that it takes photos when I want it to.
