    But I thought I'd post this anyway. Amazon.com are offering the Pentax k01 with 40mm for $314....in yellow. Pretty sweet. I only mention in this forum as I know there are legacy/focus peaking lovers here (takes all k mount lenses and m42 with small adapter) and some with multiple systems. :)

    Great price on that combo. Too bad it doesn't have either a VF or a tilting LCD. Which is why I bought the 5N instead.

    No reason to shoot you at all - if it feels good, do it! :cool:

    I have read that there are flaws; AF and the above mentioned. I still prefer NEX personally, but it's seems a good deal, which I always like too! :)

    I have one and I love it. I seem to be able to use the manual focus more easily than the NEX, perhaps because the screen is bigger and it does take excellent pictures :)

    I've ordered one Christilou, for £190 odd quid there is no reason not too given the IQ and low light performance; I have a couple of M42 lenses to try. I will still get a NEX, but I enjoy hunting for a bargain!

    That is cheap! I bought one when they first came out then sold it a few months later. When the price went down I bought another one, the IQ is excellent and I like the sturdy feel of it in my hands.

    That was a good idea! I'm excited to receive it, but think it might be a few weeks. I don't get why amazon.com will ship certain items internationally but not others, direct from themselves. They'll ship the k01 or an RX1 but not a NEX or an OMD (obviously I don't want to buy them all, but as example :))

    Amazon UK won't let me ship a camera to Slovakia even though it's in the EEC.......
