Thanks for the mention, James.

I've got two follow-up posts regarding the K-01 and flash:

One thing that I noticed is that the K-01 does not trigger the Metz 58's AF assist light and the location of the K-01 AF assist light doesn't work well with the DA*16-50 - the AF assist light gets blocked by the lens for subjects in the left half of the frame.

Call me old fashioned, but I still greatly prefer good old auto-thyristor and the use of radio triggers for remote flash. You just don't need to think about as many potential pratfalls that way. These days, I am moving away from flash and relying on existing light, or bringing continuous lighting when convenient. It makes a lot of sense as the sensors keep getting better.
