The thing that gets me is not full frame... that's something else and I don't think Pentax will go down that road), it's that it uses an even smaller sensor than the LX5, S95, X1 etc. etc. which it should be competing with. I have the LX3 and love it, but some day I'll be looking for a replacement. If this new system had had that sized sensor I might have been interested.

I wonder if the Q mount lenses have an image circle large enough to cover the larger 1/1.7" sensor including sensor shift? If so, the system might have a future.

Measuring the mirror box it looks like a 1" lens would fit 1/2 APS-c

Could this be the second Mirror-less camera rumoured ?
