Kill it with fire.
Good Lord. That is one fugly camera!
No VF? hahahahaha
K5 sensor ? If so, I’m in. You fashionistas can go get a Nikon 1 or some other junk. I take pictures with my camera.
Pentax Q, Pentax K-01… Come one, Pentax! You could do it better.
is this a beauty contest??? a camera is a tool.
writer “oh my new pencil looks beatiful now i can win the nobel prize”
There’s nothing wrong with having a nice looking tool.
But if someone cares that much, then perhaps they are the tool, no ?
@hugh: Yeh, – and a car = vehicle = ‘transportation tool’. Nobody minds the look of those.
OMG DId they fire the designer of the K7/K5 ?
These were beautiful cameras…this one looks like from toys ´r us!
it’s on the large size with out EVF, what were they thinking when design it :/
This is frankly very confounding. What is their target market for this camera? Don’t tell me it’s specifically existing K-Mount users who want a “mirrorless” camera, that level of stupidity was only recently championed by Sigma…
Pentax SLRs are beautiful, yes slightly heavier.. K-01 has no chance to be bestseller.
Damn is this camera ugly. No EVF and that ugly??? I would never buy it. Thats really ultra bad!
geez i love all the whingers on here complaining about how ugly it is.so is the sony nex.or should i say the sony lens with a body,that is ugly.
I think it’s awesome. It will be a huge seller in Russia and China. Americans are all broke so who cares what they buy.
I have wrong thoughts about russians at least. People here don’t understand WTF is this sh1t
Camera is too “artistic” looking for the photo community? :p We actually like straight sharp edges of the cameras of old. Marc Newson’s style is different and will take some getting use to.
Oh! I feel dizzy in my stomach if I see this ugly little brick.
Wouldnt touch it even with a stick.
There are so many damnugly but loveable cameras out there.
This little guy is not one of them!
It reminds me kind of an underwater housing.
lol… so ugly design! ans Pentax love it! Sorry but not me lol…
it looks like a gxr hand grip and a pentax q met in a supercollider
no evf is bad news , ill wait for a real review before i call this a fail however
