Color: Body Only (Black) Verified Purchase
My strongest negative feeling is the price on this came down $15 since I ordered it 3 days ago. And yeah, it has no VF, but then neither does it have any mirror slap. It has the same excellent APS-C sensor it's big brother (K5) has and even better video mode selections PLUS it has focus peaking.

Despite all the carping, the body felt VERY comfortable in my big hands. The lens lock design for this body actually is sleeker and more ergonomic than the K5's. I'd purchased a Rokinon 85mm f1.4 prime a couple of years back, then buried it in my kit bag and pretty much forgot about it. When the K-01 arrived, I dug it out and slapped it on. WoW! A lens/body marriage made in Heaven. It felt perfect, the body and lens easily balanced with one another. The clarity and brightness in low light were a pleasant surprise. Unlike the K5, this body has Focus Peaking. It's not only a welcome backup for my K5, but has unique advantages in its own right.

The rubber cover for the SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot is a bit more meddlesome than the hard door/cover on the K5, but it does NOT 'flop' once you take the time to slide/secure it back in place. This body has an external stereo mike input, and UNLIKE the K5, it has audio level control. It also has a built in stereo mic and I think the K5's built in is mono, though its jack is stereo.

This unit may not be a spy's dream camera, but it should be any serious photographer's 'go to' camera for all around versatility and excellence at an unbelievable affordable price (currently). When I count up the advantage of being able to utilize my Pentax legacy/modern lenses, this thing just screams, "Buy me!"
Make no mistake, this is no toy. The dials and buttons feel solid, not cheap.

I've had this camera for a few weeks now and I must say I like it. Owning the K5, I wanted a camera that would give me similar image quality in a smaller package. The K-01 delivers on both counts, though it's not as small as I'd like. However, it handles well, and the live view implementation is better than the implementation of live view on the dSLRs. I use the DA Limited lenses on this camera, and they focus and handle very well. I haven't tried larger lenses since I have the K5 for that.

In social situations, the camera puts people at ease, and being able to shoot from the hip (literally) makes it easier to engage your subjects and still get excellent photos.

I haven't shot much video with it, but having one-button access to the function is very handy.

Using manual lenses on this camera is a breeze, much easier than the dSLRs for me. With focus peaking and live view zoom, it's very easy to nail focus.

If you're looking for a serious snapshot camera, this is a great choice, even if you don't own any Pentax lenses. Teh 40mm kit lesn is outstanding, probably equal to the DA40 Limited prime (I have both and have compared them). My only concern with the 40mm kit lens is the lack of a lens hood, thought it never caused me a problem in the time I owned the lens (I sold it since I have the DA40 Ltd).

For people worried about the lack of an optical or electronic viewfinder, I've shot the K-01 several times in bright Texas sunlight, and the LCD works well enough for me to compose and focus. Honestly, the lack of a OVF or EVF is a non-issue for me.

All in all, I think this camera is a winner and well spec'd as a dSLR complement.

The more I use this camera the more I love it. I know that everyone on the internet is a critic but I am glad I gave in to my urges and got this camera.
The controls are very well laid out and very easy to read and use. The menus also use a large font and are quite decent.
The 40mm lens is razor sharp.
The whole kit is just well made. It is the first camera that i have had in a long time that just gets out of your way and actually assists you in taking pictures. For example, when taking close up pics of flowers or whatever, you can turn on several features that give you excellent assistance in confirming your focus. Speaking of which, the AF is easily better than the Fuji X100 and on par with the Oly E-PL1.
Another thing i really like is that the camera is completely trustworthy in full auto mode, you set it to scene and just concentrate on taking pictures and they come out amazingly well (this is unlike my V1 which can take great pics but really makes you work to get them).
That's my last remark, the image quality is truly exceptional! It is the best image quality i have had (better than X100). Don't believe me just go onto Flickr and do a search on K-01 and see for yourselves. I have quite useable pictures taken at ISO 12800 and ISO 25600 (realistically when viewed on the web and not blown way up).
I just love this camera and i haven't been excited by a new camera in a very long time. the K-01 is well designed, well built, easy to use and has amazing image quality.
If you are in the market for a new camera I encourage you to try it (after all you have 30 days to return it if you are not happy). You have nothing to lose and a great photography experience to gain.
