The new Pentax K-01 was designed by Marc Newson, and it definitely has a different look from ordinary cameras. You’ve got a nice assortment of colors to choose from to make this mirror-less camera distinctive. Newson also collaborated on the design of the base 40mm F2.8 lens, which is 0.36 inches in width, just large enough for a manual focus ring.

The K-01 uses the standard Pentax K-mount, so it’s compatible with numerous other lenses the company has made. The large APS-C CMOS sensor has 16MP and supports full 1080p HD video capture. The back features a 3″ high-res LCD screen, but no optical viewfinder.

There are three different colors available, the black and yellow, the all black, and the black and white. The K-01 will launch this March for $900(USD) with the 40mm lens or $750 for the body alone.
