Re: Pentax K-01- Resistance is Futile

I really tried to resist the K-01 as long as possible.

I'm a former Pentax DSLR user (K100D Super, K-x) and I kept my Pentax manual glass when I switched to Samsung NX (NX10, NX200). A few months ago I bought a used Samsung GX10 (Pentax K10D clone) to use my old Pentax-K glass again. I also bought a brand new 18-55WR for just € 75,- to have a full weatherproof setup.

Today I saw the black K-01 + 40mm XS for just € 439,-. I ordered it right away, the K-01 will arrive tomorrow.

My plans are:

Keep Samsung NX10 + 30mm, 18-55mm, 50-200mm and SEF20A flash unit

Sell NX200 + 20mm, 20-50mm

This way I still keep my favorite NX camera (NX10 is not very good at high ISO, but I like it better than NX200) and some useful lenses.

The K-01 will be my night shooter at high ISO.

Manual Pentax K-Mount lenses I still have:

-Vivitar 28mm f/2.0

-Pentax-M 28mm f/3,5

-Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7

-Pentax-M 100mm f/2.8

-Pentax-M 135mm f/3.5

I'm really looking forward using those with peak focus support on the K-01.
