Ok, but wouldn't recommend to others.

  • Summary: Wonderful for a point and shoot, but not so much for a DSLR. Mirror-less camera. Yellow grip does show up dirt and scum from continual use from hands. Needs on going self cleaning to resolve it. Top on/off dial very plasticey and after some use comes off and now I've lost mine.

TAKES THE BEST PICTURES ON AUTO FOCUS EVER - LACKING A VIEWFINDER AT THIS HIGH PRICE POINT IS JUST PLAIN STUPID.

  • Summary: Don't get me wrong this is a fine camera for what it does right but for what this camera does wrong it is almost unforgivable. First issue no view finder. If this Pentax K01 camera had a viewfinder I would be so giving it a five star rating on that tiny addition alone.

  • Excerpt: I picked up a cheap nice used cam and have taken it out over the last few days. It made an interesting comparison after using my DSLR's and my recent 'ben hur' post about mirror less.

I was hoping for better from Pentax

  • Summary: I've liked every other pentax camera I've used, I was hoping for better. The controls and look of the camera are nice. The quality of pictures are good... however the small lens that came with it is lacking.

Very good picture quality both video and stills better than competitors for the class of Camera slow auto focus loud motor

  • Summary: I don't want to repeat what others have said about quality and design. Beyond expectation for the class of camera the picture quality and color depth is excellent. What bothers me is the slow auto focus and biggest concern is the loud noise from auto focus motor in the lens.

some good, some bad

  • Summary: This product is in the process of being discontinued by Pentax after one short year. It really flopped. Be sure that you have firmware v1.03 installed. You can get this from the Pentax website.

Zoom Issue

m.kobie, Amazon
21 April 2013
  • Summary: Love the picture quality, however you need to buy additional lens for better zoom. Not a listed requirement in the description. It does state that additional lens are available not required. Lens protector should also be attached (via cord). At events it is easy to lose.

K-01 is interesting camera, worth a try under certain conditions.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera to use with several Pentax lenses I already owned. I bought the "body only" kit so it would force me to use the Pentax lenses. The camera has some nice features that compensate for lenses that do not have auto focus, and I was able to figure this out after some time.
