The K-01 is for sale now at just £240. I'm planning to get one with the FA*24mm along with an M 100mm as my backup body. How well does the focus peaking work? I'd like to use it as a backup body while shooting landscapes/architecture--Angad S. aka goosetaLBA and CBA haunt me.angadsrin.zenfolio.comK5iis with DA 17-70/4, 35/2.4, M 50/1.7, Tamron 70-200/2.8, Sigma 70/2.8 macroSigma DP1 MERRILL WOOHOOIsold the sony stuff!
I kinda expected a lot of messages about the K-01s when the new batch arrived at Amazon. I'm pretty sure everyone who got one is feeling pretty good about what a bargain they got, really. Did it not happen? Did Amazon not deliver on their deal? Do we no longer mention the K-01 around here anymore? Am I opening old wounds?
I wonder what the experience of forum members has been with this lens. It is now being offered by SRS for £129 and I imagine that it is likely to be discontinued along with the K-01. Of course I do not need one, but somehow I covet this lens for its tiny size and it is hard to resist (LBA problem - I have the DA 35. macro so there is probably no excuse for me to buy one!) --Miles500
i was going to get a high end p&s (XZ-2) and end up getting a new K10 and K01 on discounted price. so i am new for pentax but it doesn't take long for me to enjoy the experience.i still hope to get a compact as i missed it. i have learn a great deal about Q here and the MX-1 sounds very exciting. just wonder if anyone happen to have the mx1 and the Q/Q10 to give some insights.i understand they design for different use and not in the same category. i almost certain to get the MX-1 but the...
over at the SLR forum there is a thread about the K-01:K-01 -- what you see ain't what you get?answered by Cane:http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/50916236So the question is:Does the screen of the MX-1 get dimmer if you underexpose by turning the exposure adjustment wheel from 0 to -2?Thanks a lot.I think about getting the MX-1 as a companion to my K-5.--][.Keruskerwe don't see that we don't see (eye's blind spot)
Recently, in cold temperature (2C to -15C), I have noticed that the image on the LCD screen of the K01 was "flashing" (tearing/bliking?) when the luminosity of the scene was changing.This happens with my K01, and, my GF's K01 -- with both cameras. At first, I thought one camera was starting to degrade, but, I noticed the same with the other one too. It's very unlikely that both are defective. (I hope not!)Did you notice (or not) similar phenomena in cold weather with your K01...
Hi allI got my k01 finally and am getting used to it.When in movie mode I see the focus square thing at the beginning fine, but when I start taking the video ('filming' comes to my lips, but of course there is no film, and who says 'videoing') the focus point/square disappears from view.However if it is set to the side it stayts at the side, not the middle, and thus you can't properly see it.Am I just stuck with this or is there something I can do to maintain the focus point in view while...
