Just Ed: Is it my iPad, some of the shot are really soft? In particular the produce stand even at the large size just doesn't look that good at the pof (front row).

Not slamming the lens, just asking?

I think the OOF front edge of the fruit stand shot is probably more a dof issue at f2.8 on a full frame camera...

aris14: Nice try...
If this cam can deliver decent results It will be the best tool for paparazzis at least as a backup to their heavy staff they usually carry...

haha... who is gonna pay for a noisy small sensor jpeg with watercolor noise reduction artifacts, smearing the label on Lindsay Lohan's bottle of Raspberry Vodka ?

Even paparazzis have standards... 8^)

PNK: No OVF is a big drawback for be. I have the GF1 and X100. GF1 is much faster in focus but since it doesn't have an OVF, it sits at home.

optional OVF I thought? just add the extra cost onto 800

Hoya's most 'successful' move since buying Pentax has been the multi-colored bodies on its entry level DSLR's... (a truly innovative design) Those cameras were never meant for the DPR gang, and neither is this one.

I cant believe they spent a nickel developing this idea.... As they had already failed at this with the 110 film SLR years ago. But like the fuchsia KX and matching lenses, this little guy was not designed for me. Sadly the target audience, soccer moms and hipsters with too much money are already hooked on their Iphones and apps, so the timing of this release is a couple of years late.

Martin_PTA: They way I see it, is that Qwntm' s checklist will only be complete once someone is able to get close-to current APS-C/micro-four-thirds performance on 1/2.3" sensor size. Sensor quality will improve, and at some stage P&S cameras will be capable of good performance. Pentax can then capitalize on experience gained here to maintain this niche.

I think it a bold move from Pentax, but will bear fruit only on one very major condition: PRICE! The modern tendency is to make these "mirrorless" cameras too expensive. In South Africa very few people buy them , and their second hand value tends to be on the low side. This large-sensor mirrorless sector is thus already a definite FAIL here. If Pentax can do this body for sub-$400, BUT also add a plastic body (similar to entry level DSLR material) for say $200 - $250, they should be set to go somewhere! This last point is critical, as I think they did it wrong way round! If they can't, this niche-attempt will probably end up an epic FAIL!

Agreed with the price point... sadly pentax has been heading in the other direction since hoya bought them... Prices up, and remain high. their lenses are silly high priced.
