Advantages: Nice design, brilliant image quality, good pancake lens
Disadvantages: Minor focus speed but this is easily sorted
This is an excellent camera for the money. It's not quite as comfortable to hold as other digital cameras and it doesn't have a viewfinder but the image quality more than makes up for this. My previous camera was a Pentax K-7 and the image quality and low light performance on the newer K-01 is far more superior.
It has a bit of a boxy shape which, whilst it is far from a pocket camera, is handy for stabilising itself without the need for a tripod.
This would make an ideal camera for the beginner as it has LOADS of scene selections, scene modes and special effects built in. The 40mm lens that comes with the camera is super-crisp and keep in mind that this camera is compatible with most other Pentax lenses.
One minor issue I had was the focus speed. It is nothing to write home about but this is easily sorted by downloading the latest update directly from the Pentax website.
If you like Pentax cameras, you will love this.
Summary: Love it
