Great-looking interchangeable lens camera

Usually all DSLR cameras look the same to me no matter who's making them. I rather like the design of the new Pentax K-01 interchangeable lens camera because it's a little blocky rather than being rounded and it comes in three colors including a bright yellow. Under that bright colored exterior is machined aluminum frame.

This is a mirror less interchangeable lens camera that works with any of the Pentax K-mount lenses that have been around for decades. The camera has 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor and can record 1080p video. The rear LCD is 3 inches. The body only sells for $749.95. The kit including the world's thinnest 40 mm access lens sells for $899.95.
