Advantages: Good for everyday use.
Disadvantages: Doesnt give everything a pro needs but just enough.
Almost had this camera for a week. I also have a Canon Dslr and a older Pentax Dslr for few years. Hated both of them. Got myself a Sony Nex-5N and Pentax K-01 last week. The one I am really interested now is the K-01, love it. I only got the body since I have a collection of old Pentax Primes and zooms. So far my experience was great with this camera. I shoot all manual, that way I am in control of the images. Focusing is extremely fast with the Primes, even the movie mode is great with manual primes. For me the color, the look all that stuff the reviewer is pointing out is irrelevant. I adore that fat big knobs and the buttons since they are practical. I took quite a few night shots, they call came out great. The grip is great. I also have the canon larger sensor pocket camera, which I adore since it is small and carry in my pocket. I am going to get rid of my old canon and Pentax.
I like these 3 cameras Sony 5N, sleek and sexy, Canon s95 as pocket camera and Pentax K-01 as a work horse. But K-01 is the best of the bunch.
Summary: Durable great to have in your collection.
