Another K-01 on it's way.
Just could not resist. Black body only, with shutter count of "1".

Nice! The K-01 is probably the least expensive awesome sensor camera in the market now.
Current Gear: A little bit of this and a little bit of that, but want more!

Luke the description of "1" shutter count, seems to be in error. Image #111-0805. I have taken 40 or 50 in "set up". But everything looks totally new. Good enough for me.

I've read about people fixing this "bit" for the aperture but wouldn't like to do that myself! I use mine in Manual mode, set the aperture then use the green button for the camera to set the exposure, focus and take the pic. I find this works well enough as the exposure doesn't change much if the subject is fairly static anyway.

I could not find the information, about using the green button. But the lens that I have is not worth much, to sell, so I just "helped myself". Needle nose pliers, a few bends back and forth, and a check that stub still was free, and back in service. Not for everyone, but I'm like that.

Do not destroy Pentax lenses. Ever.
