The uniquely styled camera is now shipping in the USA
The Pentax K-01 made a splash when it was announced due to its unconventional design by Marc Newsom, but packs some decent internal features, too. Now, Pentax has just announced the availability of this camera, and it's heading out to stores in the USA as we speak.
The K-01 is available in black, white, or signature yellow, and is available in a kit with the PENTAX-DA 40mm F2.8 XS, which the company is calling "the world’s thinnest interchangeable lens." It packs a 16-megapixel APS-C sensor, and a sharp 3-inch, 920K dot LCD. The body on its own has an asking price of $749.95 and the lens kit will be $899.95.
