K-01 - As much controversy going out . . .

. . . as when it came in.  Many have said that its apparent flop proves Pentax "got it wrong."   It's fairly evident, however, that many who say so were too disdainful of the K-01 to touch it, and so never spoke from experience with it.

The unreserved approval of the camera from those who actually own it, on the other hand, suggests that, as much as Pentax "got it wrong," the original DP Review of it and those who never touched it but hated it perhaps likewise got something wrong, be it only in the degree to which they were willing to openly slam it so hard.  My view is that this latter possibility was a self-fulfilling prophecy that contributed to the flop, in some unknowable degree.

Greatness misunderstood, or just too cool for school?
