Re: K-01 first impressions:

The alpha to nex adaptor is simply crazy. Pentax could have gone the wise way, by creating a mount with the same electronics of the k, so that an adaptor would have just required to make the flanfpge distance longer and to replicate those contacts. Say 50€ more than the price of the camera, to have:

1) a much slimmer design and weight reduction

2) e same compatibility with k lenses

3) a new set of lenses, (especially pancakes), like samsung did with nx

4) higher compatibility with legacy lenses from other brands, thanks to reduced flange distance

The enbedded is and the very good sensor would have made this the "killer" mirrorless system, instead of a discontinued one.
