Enjoy your stay, but remember this is a Pentax forum, not a Nikon forum.

Welcome to the forums!

All are welcome here, and there is nothing wrong with discussing other brands of hardware. Of course if you're looking for answers specifically about Nikon gear, this might not be the place with the highest number of knowledgeable responses.

Yes, I know. Pentax released its mirrorless K-01 camera in 2012 -- ten years earlier than Nickey's Z30. Nickey is late to the party. They look almost the same. Should Pentax give the K-01 another look?

No, and there are multiple threads here regarding why not.

I'm with Just Ron, I've always thought it was funny how reviled the K-01 was by the same voices who went on to praise the Sigma fp, and who are now cheering the arrival of the Z30.

Obviously the big difference that is relevant across the decade+ of development is the flange distance, and how the Pentax mirrorless doesn't grant that camera any extra magic that its sibling systems don't have.

" . . . doesn't grant that camera any extra magic that its sibling systems don't have." Unless that particular K-01 is one of the yellow bricks, which is art unto itself. It at least deserves to be remembered.
