My K-01 arrived yesterday from Adorama. I was a bit apprehensive, as I don't like buying things without fondling them first and the reviews of the K-01 are not that positive. Upon opening the box and handling the camera for the first time, I had the following reactions: The body really is as big and heavy as my K110D. I like the build quality and feel of the controls. Great improvement over the dslr. Why die they decide to use that flap for a cover over the memory card? It seems like a flimsy, cheap solution. Once the battery was charged and a memory card installed, I shot a few pictures around the house (nothing that I would care to share). The K40 lens from the kit seems to perform well. But it looks like a toy. This is my first prime lens on a digital. I was reminded how much I like primes. It's just that the ones from my MX and ME Super only work wide open aperture with the new cameras. The camera balances well in the left hand with my old Sigma 35 to 70 Zoom. The focus/zoom ring falls to hand. The autofocus for the 40 is much faster and quieter than the 18 to 55 that I bought with dslr. I love the focus peaking and probably won't rely on autofocus often. I bought this camera as a backup for the dslr, I think that it might be the other way around.
