Hmm, I really did want the yellow one to begin with, and I did like this camera quite a lot...

Amazon also offers the K-01 black body only (no lens) for the same price.

If you really MUST have black then pay more. If I were to buy one I'd rather have yellow and the XS lens for the same price. But, to each their own.

Agreed. Besides, your fingers cover 2/3 of the yellow parts anyway!

I am very tempted by this deal but I am trying to resist by telling myself that someone who owns a K5 and a Q just really doesn't need this.
Stay strong! Of course if you bought it you would be the hit at all Georgia Tech games.

I thought the same thing but got a body when I ordered a K-01 kit for my son. Found an almost new DA50-200WR for $80 Christmas Eve. Set it up last night and the sharpness is amazing just on jpegs. Really looking forward to trying it with F1.7 50mm and RAW.

No, Nex is good.. but a K-mount mirror-less with a totally new tech in sub-$300 price..that's even better

Well, I just couldn't pass this up. I was looking at the 40mm f2.8 anyway and this is such a great deal for both for only $317.00. Now all I have to do is wait for it to ship...........LOL. I don't need either one so it's not a big deal to wait a few weeks to get them.

Insane deal. I jumped on it.

I don't even want the da 40 xs. I'l probably resell that. It will make the deal on the body even better.

Way too good of a deal.
