Tower: It is great news for user. All MF should not to pay more then 10K.

I bought Pentax 645 manual focus 35mm, 45mm, 75mm, 120mm macro lenses all for less than $1000.

jaygeephoto: I need some help understanding the sensor size and lens line up offered: If in fact these lenses are designed to cover the original 6X4.5 cm film area then they would be designed around a larger image circle and therefor be less than optimal? The sensor size seems to be about 73% of the 6X4.5 cm area making the lenses have a comparable magnification factor of about 1.4?
If someone makes an 80mm TS lens for this, I'm all in.

Usually when sensor is smaller than originally intended format, the smaller sensor actually utilize the "sweetspot" of the lenses and avoid the distortion around the edges.

DPNick: "order of magnitude"
LOL!

It takes a lot of courage to admit one's mistake. Correction has been made, so lets move on.

I, for one, am happy that Pentax is getting much deserved publicity for the great values it has presented in its camera offerings.

Mssimo: Am I the only one that thinks the K-01 uses the same sensor as the K-5 IIs with no AA filter? Also noticed the K-5 still looks really good.

Now you mentioned it, I also noticed both have moire on the face.
