Too small of a part, but so far it doesn't look "ugly".

Indeed; based on this photo it will at least look a little "classical" (shutter button lock and thed style of the "K" font which is exactly like that used on the old K-series from the 70's - K2 - KX - KM).

Might as well show us the battery, in this case.
But I don't want it to be irresistible, I like the K-5 too much!

Re: Reminds me of Q styling

Resemblance to the Q probably confirms they were meant to launch simultaneously as the K and Q (King and Queen). I'm guessing being put on hold due to the impending sale meant the Q launched by itself to look anaemic on its own against the likes of NEX, so only now is it starting to make a bit more sense - this K-01 was the one always meant to take on the NEX while the Q took on the Cybershots.

All I'm seeing is a tiny crop that says "K-".

Re: First leaked photo of the K-01

It doesn't come out yet, and the chinese already falsificate it?

I don´t mind it´s ugliness, if it has a "tough macho" style(sorry ladies).

What happened? Did you drop it in a pile of fly ash?
