I don't understand the logic of using Pentax lenses with Sony 5n, or any other mirrorless camera for that matter. Small size is what mirrorless camera is all about and that is why K01 fails.

Size? when K-01 is the same overall size as the OM-D ??? .... depth apart of course.


But depth is not a handling issue, and it is the depth that allows us to use those great Pentax lenses. What would 4/3 dying system owners give to be able to carry on using their wonderful Zuiko optics without an adapter or the miserable slow focusing .... a few exceptions of course.

Or the sky high prices for joining the OM-D club with fast lenses.

Apples to oranges.  The E-M5 has an EVF whereas the K-01 obviously doesn't.  Would the K-01 still be the same size if it had an EVF?
