They also "get" AA batteries. I love my AA-based cameras, and the K30 has actually causes me a few brief thoughts of thinking I should just buy it and extend the life of my Pentax equipment rather than jumping ship to the M43 system.

I disagree about the universal appeal of the AA batteries. If you assume that you are somewhere where you can't charge your Li ion, and then you just walk in to a store and by some alkaline AA, then the actual experience may be quite disappointing. Typically digital cameras require AA batteries that can supply high current, which alkalines cannot, and then you won't get more than a few shots out of them. And anyway, I don't think it's any easier to find a shop that sells AA, than it is to find a functioning power outlet.
