That photo of the yellow K-01 with the 55mm SDM, nestled next to an ME, looks pretty smart.

Quite well written, but a TOTAL DISASTER! not showing it
with a small lens
Half Man... Half Pentax ... Half Cucumber

Pentax K-1 + K-5 and some other stuff

I'm not sure the K-01 is intended to be something ultra-compact, but it's compact enough to look rather good next to an ME. That in itself is fairly compact, very compact by the standards of other marques.

A long way from any sort of disaster IMHO.

In a photography magazine it would have been OK, but on a website
for arty farty designers who consider an iphone to be a perfect
camera there's no sense at all showing a massive lens and even
bigger hood other than lose sales.

Even the ME makes the K-01 look too thick
