k-01, nex, sony SLT

Sony NEX-5N is priced @ $599 body (MSRP), why is Pentax K-01 starting at $749?
I know the prices trend lower eventually but is it becos of the build quality?
I own K10D and looking to upgrade to newer bodies with videos that can AF etc,
K-01 is interesting from that sense

I have 18-55 WR, F50mmf1.7, Tamron 28-75mm and Tamron 18-250mm, I dont want to change systems
When I think about it, Pentax coud've done similar to Sony SLT route

Pentax usually makes compact bodies, I am sure they cud've built a compact body with no mirror, with EVF and good movie capability

More I think, looks like Pentax will be releasing their second mirrorless soon, right now they made guys like me who are thinking of moving to samsung or sony pause

I just wished Pentax release two mirrorless bodies - one advanced with evf etc and another just LCD just like nikon J1 and V1
anyway I did my rant and I am happy

Nikon 1 J1 Nikon 1 V1 Panasonic Lumix DMC-F5 Pentax K-01 Pentax K10D Sony Alpha NEX-5N
