To label the Pentax K-01 as eccentric misses the point to some extent. Yes sure it does not win any beauty contest however it is a camera that includes some important features once you get used to it; great filters. Battery life at the top of the list of advantages. Think of the camera as small utility camera built like a tank. K-01 a very durable and likeable camera. That Pentax never followed K-01 with K-02 with viewfinder gave me reason to switch to Fujifilm which has managed to survive; given the rush into full-frame by the big three.

Note: Pentax K-01 top-dial can come off; easy to fix it with superglue. MPB website with Pentax K-01 with top-dial missing at 200 euros. As if you can get the top-dial replacement?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I certainly find it very attractive. Shame it was never developed further.
