That nice red strap is just screaming for the yellow grip then you can stick it all in the middle of a hamburger bun, add a pickle and call it a day!

No David, focal length is too long...was just making it look cool. The viewfinder is a better match for my FA31mm or FA28mm.

Is that a viewfinder for the Q - meaning 49mm? If that's the case, I could use it with either my Sigma 30mm f/1.4 or my DA 35mm f/2.8 Limited.

Meanwhile, I'm just a bit sorry that I bought a K-01 body-only. While I have the DA 40 f/2.8 Limited, the 40 XS would be great to have if I ever sell or give away the body (my nieces have a lot of my old photo gear). But the XS is too expensive to buy on its own.

Cancelled my Amazon order a while back and regretted it--Got the B&H order today. I'm loving it.

I got the shipping notification also last night, so I will have my k-01 plus the 40XS lens after all... I am happy about that. I think most of the stocks in Canada has been almost depleted except for a few places, and the only place to get them cheaper is from the US marketers. I am sure you can sell your 'extra' k-01 here to fellow Canadian PF members, if they missed the chance to get one earlier.

I saw the shipping notification yesterday and got the camera today! It's really nice, but the button placement is a bit awkward. Do the firmware upgrade!

Speaking of dead men--I immediately attached my new K-01 to the new-to-me 10-17mm fisheye I acquired a few days ago. I've about used up all my wife's patience at this point.

That's why you should have kids....or, even better, cats....since getting my K-01, these furry family members have been the most patient test subjects:

Has anyone chucked the 40mm XS on a K-5 (ii(s))?
Amazon has the black 40mm kit for $360 now. But i have the option of getting the 40mm limited for also, 360.
What say you Pentaxians?

Which one is your wife? The woman in blue with the scarf?
Actually, you only see the top of her head here. Let me clarify--It's the *buying of toys* that is wearing out her patience, not the taking of pictures.

Just got my yellow (brick) k-01 today, 5 days earlier than the scheduled delivered date. Looks like Amazon has delivered as promised as the package looks brand new. Battery sticker date 2012 09, could be the last production run of the k-01. I am looking forward to test drive this new toy with my m42 lens in the next little while...
