Looks Good... I might even buy one!!!!

Nice signature on the bottom

No pics of the back yet

Wonder what the Red button does?

Edit: Pics of the back aren't being released until tomorrow ;-(

dedicated video rec button.

It would be too easy to knock it on right on the end.... might be the ISO and the designers being silly?

hope not..that is right where I'd want the rec button, especially if it can shoot stills and video SIMULTANEOUSLY.. for the record, I've never accidentally hit the PHOTO button on my sony camcorders despite the placement of the buttons being similarly arranged witht he photo button being prominant near the zoom toggle.. but it is convenient to be able to find the button when you need it with out having to look up!

Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

You'd find that red button easy... it's right by the strap which
would be very awkward to use if you had the camera at waste level.

There looks to be another button on the same place by the other strap?

I can only see one dial?

The rotary switch looks to have as many selections as the K-5,
but one for HDR as well (never used HDR on the K-5 so I don't know
where the switches are).

i suspect the other button on other side is the flash pop up button..
the red button is definately the REC button for video.

I've seen one image of a kr replacement looking cam with the new 40 on it so the new lens may in fact be usable on kmount d-slrs..

on page three is the d-slr with new 40mm..looks photoshopped, but, still from the same surce as the other k-01 photos which are obviously athentic..

That's the link I posted that got deleted I don't think
your allowed to look at the K-01 until tomorrow on here!

The lens is shown on a K-5 on that page, he's just rubbed K-5
out to show just the lens.

This is the K-5 link

It looks more like an adapter than a lens! It will be interesting to see what the final hard facts are.
Best regards, John

There's something of the i10 about it... I didn't like the i10 though! But I think with a 'real' lens it might look better.

probably..but I am hoping the next d-slr is based on the k-5 with just sensor/processing improvements..

The more I think about it, the more I think that the 'ugliness' of this snub-nosed beast is due to that featureless pancake lens. Stick a FA43mm on and it'll look fine!
