Pentax, $849 (w/ 40mm lens) pentax.com.au ★★★ With its bright yellow exterior and boxy body, you could call Pentax’s new creation the Tonka truck of the camera world. The K-01’s look is certainly striking and the fact it was designed by Qantas creative director Marc Newson shouldn’t surprise. This compact system camera also comes with an eye-catching accessory: a 40mm f/2.8 lens so flat you’ll barely notice it’s attached. Despite its unusual design, controls on this 16.3-megapixel camera are standard, with a mode dial, playback, video and shutter buttons all within easy reach. This camera is quite chunky at 5.9cm thick, however, and it weighs as much as an SLR at 561g. Even more disappointing is its lack of speed.
