The styling is not Leggo-ish enough for me. Pentax and Fuji should join forces and conquer the world. It just needs in-body SR and a Pentax K mount and I would buy it in an instant....It's a great camera. I hope the Pentax K-02 has these features plus an OLED swivel screen.... and I would be in heaven.

I'm so happy to be a Pentax user. The Pentax K-01 has in body SR, needs no adapter to fit K mount lenses. ......Canon should have done better, but it will sell by the bucket load no doubt.

Already having a K10 and K7, I really wanted this model body to be a MILC with a EVF and swivel screen. Oh well, just to be patient and keep waiting, Im sure this camera will sell very well. A great looking camera but not for me.

In reply to:

gmol: What's the point of a 60mm-equivalent lens? It's too narrow for indoor shots, and F2.8 is too small an aperture. Why is it that - with the exception of the Samsung 30mm f2 pancake - nobody has been able to produce a really usable and bright standard pancake since the Panny 20mm F1.7 was introduced 3 or 4 years ago?

Hi Gillamoto

- this 40mm lens is dedicated for aps-c sensor. so it will be 40mm with this camera, not 60mm.

The Da 40mm and new 40mm are both for dedicated for APS-C - equivalent to about 60mm in full frame.

Cheers

On Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera article (874 comments in total)

I was really considering a Sony NEX 7 until I held one in my hand. I have small hands and found the grip on the Sonyway too shallow even for me.

The Pentax body being thicker than other MILC cameras is a blessing in disguise. Pentax has given us a better options than the competition in this class. With full K mount compatibility without any adapters, and built in SR this camera beats the competition hands down. The next version should include the bells and whistles that I need, an EVF and a fully articulated screen. No doubt it will be announced the day after I purchase the K0-1....bugger.

Hey Pentax, can I be a tester for you?

I would have to disagree with you on this one. I find the Da 40 is on my K7 most of the time, it is really sharp fully open, it is an excellent portrait lens, especially indoors for chasing my 3 kids around the house. I have the the FA 1.4 which is also a good lens for this purpose but the 40 Da is better for fast moving subjects indoors. We all have a choice with this new camera to use whatever lens we want with built in SR Pentax really should be congratulated for supporting the K mount. This is great news as Pentax primes especially the primes is why I bought Pentax in the first place.

Image stabilization • In-lens optical stabilization when available?

Does this mean the lens current size will increase?
