K-ountdown to the K-01

The moment approaches, 10am GMT, so a thread for last minute updates and then for actual release news and pics.

A couple of quotes form Marc Newson on his design of the K-01:

  • I would define K-01 as a semi-professional camera. I think it really gives the impression of a solid, high quality tool.

  • The new camera looks quite different to those already on the market - this will be a big surprise for consumers. We see this as a positive thing so that we can visually separate the product from what competitors are doing, and it's great. I think consumers will be happy, because we give them a choice and an individual product. The company was able to recognize Pentax this opportunity to appeal to consumers.

Anybody remember that Simpsons episode where Homer designs the perfect car to appeal to consumers?
