waxwaine: Go Pentax!
it was a very light hearted jab at canon, i sell cameras and use canon n nikons daily, fantastic cameras but own pentax and feel the underdog deserves more praise than is given. the canon 50mm 1.8 @ £100 is very sharp. This lens is going to be ideal with the launch of the canon m.
the same reason i read this post. why would you go for a "larger" lens with af gliches when you could have a 40mm da xs on a better camera!!
the mode dial was all but useless on the j1/v1 and now it appears one the j2, you have to trawl through 2 or 3 menu screens to find the manual controls, which is half the point of this camera. The other half will just use auto. Im responsible for selling cameras n people love the design n idea but layout puts them off, panasonic g and gf cameras are preferred with a lower price tag and more lenses. great lcd on this however.
