It makes no sense that in one post, you're calling the K-01 a Kr, while in others, characterizing it as a K5 in image quality.

The K-x, K-r, (K-s), K-01 and K-5 have functionally similar sensor and processing engine performance, the final result is more a matter of what lens is on the front than anything else.

The K-01 compares with the K-r in all significant respects except for styling, re. build quality, functions, size and weight. The K-r has a viewfinder, the K-01 does not. Look at the back view of both cameras. It's clearly the same chassis underneath, just restyled body panels.
