K-01 future / Pentax thoughts
Oct 1, 2012

So, what is Pentax thinking of K-01? Are they abandoning the experiment?

"Support for the K bayonet makes it very difficult to reduce the size [of the body]. Anyway, this product can be developed to show the possibilities of the frame K. It is a special product in the system K, so I was not originally envisaged to continue this line of cameras as a new range. So do not continue along this line, but we continue to investigate what can be done with this bayonet."

"In other words, the first ones who bought it were not photographers, at all, and the photographers came to it only afterward. So we had a first peak of interest of customers, then it went down step by step, and now we have a regain of this kind of interest for people who understand the advantage of the product. So we will keep selling this product for quite some time, and now we have a regain of interest in the product, an increase in sales, if I can say though."

Kind Regards,
Spyros
