is certainly a good camera, but at present you can buy a K-01 with 40mm f2.8 XS for $ 360

Personally, I'd be happy to shoot with a K-01, but 60mm is not the best focal length for general photography. And since I don't have any Pentax glass, no matter how good the IQ is, a K-01 makes zero sense for me.

A single focal length camera like the X100 does make sense for me. A K-01, not so much. But I have thought about picking one up.

Don't quite get this.  For less the price of the fixed lens X100 you could own the K-01 with 40mm and then add the excellent DA 21mm and still have enough for a nice dinner with the wife, then she'd be happy too
