Marc Newson-designed PENTAX K-01 Mirrorless Camera
After some photos leaked of Pentax’s new K-01 mirrorless camera, they’ve provided full specs on it. Designed by Aussie Mark Newson, it features an aluminum body and features some impressive specs. The main thing about the new K-01 is that the K-lens mount is compatible with any Pentax lens out there, which means you don’t have to buy new lenses. It also packs a 16.28MP APS-C sensor, 920,000-dot 3-inch LCD, 1080p h.264 video at 30fps and 720p at 60fps, 6fps burst mode, and ISO from 100-25600. Because the APS-C sensor features the same specs as Sony’s highly respected NEX-5N, the K-01 camera should provide good low light performance. You can pick one up starting in March for $750 (body only) or drop $900 for the body and the DA 40mm XS lens (by itself it’ll cost $250).
