Not mainstream but ...

I think you have homed in on the important points that are key to the relevance of the K-01.

There has been plenty of debate about the styling (I am one who thinks it's pretty cool and seems a high quality build and that counts a lot for me), it's size and the wisdom of sticking with the full size K mount but there is no doubt that PENTAX stuck to their word when they said (in interview with one of their execs) that if they played in this space that image quality would be of paramount importance. They seem to have achieved that and the current and back list of quality K mount lenses accompany that. IQ is on the top of my wish list as well.

The styling is a little different but I think the lovely PENTAX primes go well with it (I am a proud owner of DA15mm, 21mm, 31mm, 43mm, 77mm which covers the focal length preferred for my style) and while the K-01 won't be mainstream but it will win converts with what it can do.

Looking forward to getting my hands on one to complement my K-7
