I have been using a Panasonic FZ7 since it came out in 2006. I have been very happy with the camera, but felt it was time to upgrade.

I was all ready to pull the trigger on an FZ200, when I noticed a review for the Pentax K-01. The review, as are most reviews for this camera, was of a low opinion of the K-01, but what caught my eye was the photo quality. I imagine the reviews would have been of a much higher opinion with the camera now half the price of when it was released, and with a new firmware to boot...

The main "functional" criticisms against this camera are the lack of a viewfinder and the slow auto-focus performance. The auto-focus performance has been addressed by a new firmware, available at the Pentax web site. The lack of a viewfinder is, in my opinion, and unforgivable oversite, but at a bit over $500 with a pair of lenses, for a camera with an 16MP APS-C sensor and Pentax K-Mount compatibility, I am willing to overlook that. The ergonomics are also very poor in comparison to almost every other modern camera, and it is large, but I can live with that.

Simply put, you cannot get higher quality images with the flexibility of lenses that the the K-01 delivers, for less money right now. I own a few old Pentax lenses, so I am getting even more bang for my buck than others would, but even if I did not have the lenses already, I would have gone with the K-01 dual lens setup.

The K-01 has reignited my interest in photography, as it gives DSLR quality photos, combined with a HUGE selection of lenses to choose from, at an affordable price.

It has taken some time to get used to this camera, as I'm not yet accustomed to trying to take professional-quality photos with a point and shoot camera. The quality off the sensor is amazing, and if you have the old FA43 and 77 lenses, once you get critical focus figured out, you are rewarded with beautiful images. The best part is being able to put the camera down in places you can't put your face and still take shots.

Ergonomically, the operation is different from a standard SLR, as every review site says. The feel is different, but not foreign, and despite the whining about button placement, it takes virtually no time to get used to it if you want to make the effort to do so. Honestly, the biggest challenge in using a camera like a K-01 is making the brain-switch to hauling an SLR body and lens up to your face to use a viewfinder. It takes a lot of failed attempts to see through the flash hump to start to get that this camera doesn't work that way.

Being a Pentax ME-Super owner, with over a thousand dollars invested in optics, I bit on the K-01 offer from Amazon, for $429.00. (Now $399)This offer included two zoom lenses, albeit the plastic kit variety, but was, at worst, a great way to get into a higher quality camera, at a fire sale price.

First of all, this camera is not at all photogenic. Almost anything with an APS-C sensor has a better appearance on a web page. My bet is this killed the K-01 series, more than anything. Consequently, 30 years ago, the K-01 would have been a hit, as users would have held it in their hand, rather than judge it by a photo. Compared to any of the all plastic, and pricier, APS-C Sensor DSLRs from the competition, the K-01 feels solid and well built, no doubt due to its solid aluminum frame and controls and sturdy rubber covering, as opposed to the cheesy plastic and flimsy controls offered by the three major competitors. The kit lenses may have plastic bodies and mounts, and lack an aperture ring, but handle with a smooth solid feel and have class leading optical performance, again, way outclassing the competition from the big three.

While it's true, you can use your old k mount Pentax - Asahi optics, the manual settings are less than intuitive and required some experimentation and practice. That's the bad news. The good news is, other than nostalgia, the old lenses offer little advantage over the kit lenses, unless you're in a low light situation, or you want a narrow depth of field, and then the old 50mm f1.4 comes in handy.

There are other advantages to the Pentax K-01 compared to almost anything twice its price in the mirror-less APS-C class.

1) If you have large hands, like mine, the K-01 feels much better than the puny plastic grips on the competition.

I have had this for about a year now. It was a great price from Amazon and it is a great camera. I had a Samsung EX1/TL500 before this and it was a very good camera too, but this K-01 is noticeably better. I have a few new lenses, but the camera works well with the 20 year old Pentax lenses I now have too.
