5.0 out of 5 stars I just can't believe I purchased a camera this good so cheaply., 5 Jan 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pentax K-01 Compact System Camera with 40mm Pancake Lens - Black (Electronics)
A wonderful camera, works (ie provides focus confirmation and anti-shake) with every Pentax lens ever made, plus plenty of others (eg I have a microscope adapter). Good in low light too. it produces nice video with acceptable sound, plus the ability to add an external microphone. Too many other features to list - the manual is only slightly shorter than the Lord of the Rings.

One piece of advice - when it arrived, ie out of the box, the focus speed was ok, but certainly nothing to be thrilled about. It was a simple matter to download the latest firmware (v1.01) from the Pentax site, and this gave a VERY noticeable improvement in focus speed.
