Having K-01 would only make sense if you would seriously want to do more advanced video work. For all other photographic applications K-x is more suitable, not only because it has a proper viewfinder, but because of the much better overall handling

I don't really do much video. I do very much people (portraits) and streets. My favorite lenses are sigma 30mm 1.4 sigma 50 1.4 (or m50 1.7 and a50 1.7) and the samyang 85 1.4. I have some manuals and wanted to know if people used there manual on the k-01.

I think the K-01 is the best Pentax for manual focus.  After using mirrorless cameras for 2 years I wouldn't go back to an SLR for manual focus lenses.  Unless you replace the stock viewfinder screen.  Live view is too important for manual focus, being able to zoom in and see where the focus point is, or setting focus peaking and being able to visualize the focus field with ease on the screen.
