In my subjective view, K-01 is designed for the DA & FA Ltd., not for big zooms.

If Pentax is just trying to please the existing owners, then it is not a good investment for Ricoh, as Pentax Camera division was losing money before Ricoh's acquisition. On top of downsizing it's workforce, Ricoh is trying to capture new owners with Q & K-01.

Marc Newson is not just a designer, he is a BRAND, and he can draw those who appreciate his work into buying a Pentax. For those who wants to own a piece of Marc's work, they are very likely to buy a K-01 than buying his Biomega bicycle or his Ikepod watch which are priced like a Leica in there respectable market. Be prepared to be disappointed that Pentax will sell K-01 better than most expect.

YES! The K 01 with 15, 21, 40 and 70 pancakes makes a nice, small and more complete kit than Sony or Samsung have.
