Design isn't looks but still pointless...
In reply to tigrebleu, Feb 2, 2012

As another said, "design" is not just about the "look". The latter is forgivable and often up to taste. The entire design however is mystifying. One retains the full K-mount (okay, I can see reasons for compatibility) and thus retains very nearly the full size of an SLR. So a consumer is to sacrifice the benefits of fast phase detect focus and TTL viewfinder for what exactly? A designer camera that might make some percentage of Pentax-philes happy?
