An odd bird
In reply to Joel Stern, Feb 26, 2013

The K01 was an odd bird. Marketed as being designed by a famous modern designer, but not really a camera that would appeal to the fashion conscious. No VF option. Not really a compact mirrorless camera because it used SLR lenses.

Those who tried were very impressed with its IQ, though.

I've always believed that a K-mount GXR unit was not a good idea either. But the guts of the K01 could be recycled for a V2 GXR system (with an excellent 16 MP sensor). However, the question is, does Ricoh want to continue the GXR concept? And we know where that questions leads...
