Marc Newson (designer of the Pentax K-01) rocks!

    The Pentax K-01 received mixed reviews, but it appears that Marc Newson, the Australian industrial designer who was responsible for the K-01, has a breadth of talent that extends far beyond mirrorless cameras.

    It's fair to say that his latest design rocks:

    Prices in London vary from GBP 500.00 to 642.00 including 20% VAT. Taking off the VAT and converting GBP 600.00 to US dollars gives a price of about $800 plus local sales tax.

    So, my poor, unloved, chunky K-01 remains the cheapest Marc Newson-designed product that you can buy?

    It may be ugly, but it performs!

    Actually no. I have a Newson designed dish rack and a Newson designed door stop. both made by Magis, which are both significantly cheaper than the K-01. I suspect there are some other cheaper Newson designed products around as well.

    Why do I have those 2 products? Well, every now and then I just feel like being a design junkie but I try not to let that get in the way of performance. Sadly with the dish rack I did. It's not a good design for stacking dishes in many ways so while it looks great and excited a lot of comment, it's now relegated to a cupboard and a much more pedestrian but functional dish rack sits on my sink.
