I'd say it's a seriously good deal for someone starting off... that's less han posh compact cameras that won't even cover the same focal lengths... : Pentax 15274 16 MP Mirrorless Body Design Camera with DA L 18-55mm and 50-200mm Lenses - Black : Compact System Digital Cameras : Camera & Photo

I have bought 3 K-01s from this seller on Amazon - one each for myself, daughter, and son. No problems. In one case the Pentax battery was bad. The seller refunded the amount I asked (1/2 Pentax price - used to get a pair of Wasabis) without question. Plus did not want me to bother sending the bad battery back..

YMMV - but mine was great.

P.S. - don't forget to update the Firmware to the latest before doing anything else (settings etc.). Mine came with 1.00 - a disaster of course.

Yeah I got a white dual lens kit from them a few months back. Battery charger did the blinking thing for a long time but it eventually charged. Batteries in these kits are getting old as my battery was made in mid 2012.

My experience with older batteries isn't that bad... my K20D has it's original battery and it still seems to charge enough to take about a thousand pictures at a time!

Yeah don't get me wrong it works fine. Just that when a battery sits for years in a box it goes completely dead and sometimes they cannot be fully recovered. In my case the battery recovered but I had thought maybe it was a dud at first given the fact i got the blinking green light rather than the constant green light as it should.
