They are not bad. Sleeping kitties are good kitties. Nothing can sleep like a cat.

Nice shots. The K-01 w/40mm XS lens really delivers on the reds. Question...........was SR turned on or off when you took these shots.

He or she just does not seem pleased about being photographed. Reminds of the two (2) I have. They are never thrilled about being photographed either.

I agree with your comments about zooms. Used them a lot in my film days but outside of a Chistmas play last week I had to photograph I have used strcitly primes since late 2011. Just do not like the size and weight for really good glass. The only zoom that is in my bag is the SMC-A 35-105 f/3.5. Still a good lens despite the years. Trying to find a decent price on a FA31mm f/1.8 and that is difficult to find. Ebay has them but they cost more than B&H or Adorama.

I have the 15mm and it is a nice lens but the 21mm is more practical in my book. Agree with your comments about the 40mm XS. I find that an odd focal length but will get use to it. The best prime that I have is the FA77mm. Beautiful colors and bokeh.

The DA21mm is my favorite lens. You will really like it. Stays on my K-5 over 50% of the time. Still using the 40mm XS on my K-01.

Nice shot. And, a very nice car too. Wish I had bought a G8 before they stopped making them. Kind of a 4 dr GTO.

Nice shot of your cat. Looks a lot like one of mine. Love both the K-01 as well as our cats.

K-01 AF issues

This took a little longer than what I had planned. Installed the 40mm XS lens on my K-5 and it worked fine. Installed another prime on the K-01 and it worked. Put the 40mm XS back on the K-01 and it would not autofocus. Removed the 40mm XS and very slowly reinstalled on the K-01. Turned the lens very slowly clockwise. I did not depress the lens release button. Just before the lens would no longer turn I heard and kind of felt a muted "click". Lens then would autofocus. Removed and reinstalled and AF worked fine. Installed the latest firmware. Just not certain what was happening before since I had previously had the lens turned clockwise as far as it would got. I will be anxious to try out the K-01 on Saturday.

I completely forgot aabout the updated firmware. I will update but I still think (maybe not correctly) if the lens will not work on my K-5 then it is defecive. I will let you know although it may be tonight or Thanksgiving morning.

Thanks for the reply.

Tonight I also am going to try the 40mm lens on my K-5. If it does not work on that body I will contact Pentax. Hopefully, they will take only the lens and not the K-01 although I bought the lens and K-01 as a package. My main concern is if I return the K-01 to Adorama it will take approximately 11 working days for them to send me a replacement. And, that is if they have any stock. Rumors I have read on this site is the K-01 may be discontinued. I really do like the camera and it is an ideal companion for my K-5.

I will try tightening the lens again. Believe I have it on as tight as it will go. On another forum I got a recommendation to clean the contacts. Another thought since I have a number of primes (what I will use on the K-01) is to send the lens to Pentax for repair or replacement. That way I do not have to return the K-01 to Adorama and run the risk of ending up on a backorder list as I was when I made the initial purchase.

Long shot but I want to issue a quick thread before I return the K-01 just in case I am wrong. Bought a K-01 with the DA 40mm f/2.8 XS lens. Installing the lens on the K-01 all that would show in the display was "MF". Moving the slide switch to "AF" did not make any difference. lens would not AF. No green rectangle was showing on the display. Could not get exposure comp to work and in bright daylight (sun) when trying to take an image the display would show an almost surreal view of what I was trying to photograph. Removed and installed the lens several times to no avail. Installed a DA 35mm f/2.8 macro and AF worked perfectly. Was able to use exposure comp. Cannot comment on the surreal display since I tried this about 11 PM last night. Also mounted a DA 15mm f/4.0 and it worked fine too. Talked to Adorama (where I bought the K-01) and they have told me to return it.

By chance am I missing something that I should try? Lens instructions do not give any suggestions. I really like the K-01 and my concern is returning it may put my back on the back order list.

Nice shot! I use primes pretty much 100% but the only zoom I still use on occasions is my SMC-A 35-105 f3.5. Excellent old line lens going back to the 80's that still does a very good job years after it was discontinued. I will not part with mine.

Pentax 1st D

Lowell - I agree with you about someone "fishing for an idiot". Every day there is someone "who will buy a bridge". I paid $1,200 for mine at B&H back almost 7 years ago in 2004. I have been a Pentax user since 1983 and mainly use film using an LX, PZ-1P, Super Program and KX. I have a number of "A" lenses which work perfect with the 1st D along with some M42 mount lenses. The TLL flash is a big plus.
