Re: DPR review review

The K-01 is in fact a fairly thick camera, 20mm thicker than the Fuji, that does make it a bit chunky.


(some cameras with kit zoom lenses)

They state that the K-01 has excellent image quality.

I don't think I disagree with their assessment of either camera.  The K-01 could appeal to some, mostly K mount users, but if the AF is anything like what it was in Live View on the K-5 I would say it was very slow too.

The Fuji has slow AF with some lenses, but still relatively fast to the K-5 in Live View.  If the K-01 is faster than the K-5 in live view it might change my opinion a bit.  I think the K-01 is still more of a niche camera best suited towards K mount users in function (but originally marketed towards non K mount users).

This is the reason I don't like rating systems (like giving a camera a percent number), as it might be 70% to some, 90% to others, 10% for even others.
