Pompous..........how do we judge what is a failed product??

1. Its a camera that takes excellent photo's because of the sensor and k mount lenses.
2. They designed it without an VF to suit those it was designed to attract.

3. Even if a product doesnt sell a lot, it can still be a good product, and by virtue of what it does for the brand by way of marketing and attracting new buyers from different areas, you will never know.

There are millions, or probably even billions of smart phone users out there who couldnt give a brass razoo about a veiwfinder and a number of the artistic community who find it attractive. Real world users are getting brilliant results and its also finding a good niche use in video and macro shooting.

So, we all have opinion, but we are judged by what we bring to the table to support it dont we.

I find forum ites, who are very opinionated on certain products or ways of doing things often fail to look outside the square.

Another quality and slightly different product from Pentax, but it does tempt me.
