I actually loved the
design aesthetics of the K-01.
Yes it was pointless, taking the compromises of the SLR form and the compromises of the mirrorless form and delivering a camera with the benefits of neither (i.e. not compact, no phase detect af)
But as something to look at, as something to be seen using, especially with the pancake lens.
I know the purists will shoot me down, but it was quirky and refreshing, and in it's bright colours stood out in a sea of anonymous black or mawkish nostalga (the Nikon D-f could be argued was as similarly pointless, especially the 50mm f1.8g lens that was bundled)
If I didn't already have three systems I would have probably bought one.
