solid and amazing

This is my 1st camera, actually when I want to buying camera, I focused on budget, and after I browsing I found this K-01, at that time there is promotion, and I buy at $460 with 2 lens kit, 18-55mm and 50-200mm, day by day I used this camera, I fell this is an amazing camera, with special price and full with feature, may be because I'm still newbie, but trust me this is a solid & great camera

and as a mirrorless camera he doesn't need to use any adapter for other Pentax lens, because he have the same mount with SLR Pentax's

great...

my concern is, he can't use trigger

It didn't appeal to me, but one of our forum members who lives in Montreal has posted a great many beautiful nature images -- primarily frogs and other "water" shots -- he took with his, so it's obviously a camera capable of producing some excellent images in the right hands.

Re: solid and amazing

The K-01 is an extremely fun camera to use IMO. I liked it so much that I bought seven of them. I have given away three so far and I might give one more away. However, I am keeping a black, a white, and a yellow one for myself.

Re: solid and amazing

Glad you like it so much !

I also like mine a lot, sure it's not perfect but it's so much fun to shoot with and it feels solid in the hands. IQ is great and it might become a collector item

Happy shooting.

Re: solid and amazing

I agree.  It has some obvious limitations but the IQ for the money (mine was £219 UK, cheaper than my mid-range compact) is great.  It's not much use for sports / action but for anything that doesn't move much it works fine.

Best wishes
