Hello Spyros,

Thanks for asking. John had a post on 3.24.12 regarding the K-01, and stated:

Enter the Pentax K-5, or so I thought. I haven't used it much with the flash, but those times I have used it the performance has been inconsistent. It's still a work in progress.

Here's the fuller link commenting on the K-01:

He's not entirely happy with flash and the K-01, and he made a comment here:

I agree with John that the recent firmware update has improved markedly on some AF issues (especially the slower consumer zooms), but I have no idea what impact it that has on p-TTL performance.

I do visit John's blog from time to time for his long time review of K-01 and the comparisons to other Pentax cameras kai m4/3 he owns.

I did miss his comment regarding flash exposure improvements.

Thanks for the links.

Best Regards,
