    Oh my god, so it's true. It is compatible with Pentax's existing lenses. I think I'm coming back to the Pentax camp again guys.

    We are happy to be among the first to report the official specifications and photos of the new, affordable ($749 MSRP
    ) Pentax K-mount mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the K-01! Despite rumors that said otherwise, "K-01" turned out the official name of this camera!

    "We expect a larger series of XS lenses to become available in the near future; these lenses will be extra-compact and are said to only function with the K-01.

    looks like it might be like a cheaper alternative to upgrading from my k7 hmm...i wonder if they have matched up the af speed to that of the ep3/epl3, and if it has an evf option i'll seriously consider getting one...

    btw it doesnt seem to have a manual/auto focus switch?

    Some insights from Marc Newson on the design of the K-01

    look like a piece of brick....nonethless this is what pentax should release instead of the Q....it seem to be neither here nor that... no vf and not so compact

    I guess AF with existing lenses will be much slower, probably as slow as 43 lenses with adapter on a m43 body.

    I think the design looks pretty cool at least with the black grip, cheap like a Lomo but cool. I like it! It would be even better if it would be a bit lighter.

    The K-01 will become available on March 15th. In the US, the body-only MSRP will be $749, and the 40mm kit $899.
