Re: K-01 First Impression...

I agree with you, the K-01 somehow encourages me to be more creative than my previous cameras.

I noticed that right away as well.

Instead of attempting to downplay the size of the K-01, Pentax should have embraced it and marketed it as an asset. By designing a nice 16-35XS f3.2 zoom as a "quality" and very small kit lens, possible by the lack of a mirror but relatively large body, it would have looked simply ravishing, and would have attracted many more new non Pentax owners, and would not have got so much negative press due to its size as compared to other MILCs, or at the very least, would have been put in a better context that emphasizes the advantages of a larger body over that of those thin and tiny designs.

What a great idea.  Hopefully there'll be a K-02 at some point and hopefully with a lens like the one  you suggest.  I do like the 40mm though so I'm not complaining.
