Excerpt: Like jimmm18, I recently supplemented my K-01 with a used K30. I had bought my K-01 body a little more than a year ago on eBay as a compact second body to my K3. Since I already had a DA40Ltd, I had what amounted to a higher quality version of the original kit.
Summary: camara has very good IQ, albeit lacking some of the more professional features. Reflection of in camara flash in close room with light color walls too strong for eyes, partially due to silver color painting around flash on camara. Other than that, no comlain at all.
Excerpt: ok i love it first thing i really do its big for a mirorles however it outperforms most aps-c dslr of its year BUT BUT it has a slight meetering problem it wants to use slow shutter speeds alwayes
Summary: The Pentax Mirrorless is larger than other mirrorless cameras but the price is right. The larger size allows one to use the large selection of pentax lenses. The pictures are excellent. The only complaint is the autofocus is slow. Otherwise is a great camera for the money.
Summary: Honestly, I bought it on sale at a great price and it was a no-brainer as a backup to my K5. Since getting the camera, I find it a joy to use on a tripod, which a lot of my professional work is done on, and I'm actually considering buying another.
Sharp sensor great for manual lenses, memory card issues

Summary: I bought this camera, fully aware of its memory card issues. The issue manifests itself as an error message when you first turn on the camera. Some have reported that it can also happen after a picture is taken.
Excerpt: Easy enough. Summed up by another forum... goes like this: (1) better video than K5 (2) Focus peaking (K5 -none) (3) cheaper than K5 (4) IQ the same as K5 (5) DXO mark 79 on par with K5 /D7000 at a smaller price (6) Smaller and refreshing look than K5 (7) Native K nount (8) Cheaper than NEX7 (9)...
