K01 for Wildlife?
5 months ago

Well you likely already know the answer to the question as the K01 is not a wildlife camera.  However, this past weekend I decided to bring along the K01 for some mountain hiking to save weight.  To further save weight I selected the DA 55-300 L lens.  For wide angle and macro I used the MX-1.

So how did the K01 work?  As expected, it only works for static wildlife and is not useful for moving wildlife.  For static subjects it is a useful camera as the example pictures.  However, I missed many shots by not having a DSLR with me.  Would I bring the K01 with me again?  Not likely.  The K5 or K3 is not that much heavier than the K01.  The DA 55-300 worked quite well and will be used as a weight saving lens.
