Malcolm Hopkinson: The message to the reader, then, is the usual one: "serious photographers buy a Nikon". I see that your guide has relegated Mirrorless cameras toward the end as an afterthought, advising us that these cameras are a virtual sub species to the DSLR when in fact this is not the case.
I have been using Canon 5D MK2 Canon T2i with various lenses, but recently purchased an Olympus EM5 with 3 lenses, a thing of beauty. The EVF is excellent and camera is small even with battery grip attached. Main point IQ is simply stunning. Now I can climb up a mountain with much lighter package, knowing full well that I can enlarge images as I want with this Mirrorless miracle, no problem. My guess is it's a similar story of reliable IQ for the Mirrorless Panasonic range including the G5. We have to change with the times

That is not true. Nikon have better sensors? Nikon uses the same Sony sensors you find in other cameras. For instance, the D7000 uses the same sensor made by Sony than the Pentax K5 and other cameras. As for features, the K5 have better features than the D7000 for less money.
And finally, a REALLY serious photographer would use a Pentax, Mamiya or Hasselblad medium format camera, not a Nikon SLR, which is made for press reporters and amateurs.
However, at the end, like sadwitch said, a GOOD photographer will use whatever tool he finds useful, convinient or fun.

Pakio: I think if it was a bigger Pentax Q with same specifications of the K-01, K mount, sensor, etc... would sell definetly much better. The Pentax Q is much prettier and intelligent design.

Sorry if i make some mistake, english is my third language.

kimsch: DXOmark just tested the Pentax K-01 and it is the second best hybrid camera and as good as the Nikon D7000

No surprise is as good as the D7000, they both have the same Sony sensor...

JoeDaBassPlayer: I went and looked at some videos made with the K 01, the new Oly and the 5D Mk3. WOW! I am getting a K 01. It is a serious alternative to the new 5D. IMHO, the K 01 is better.

Maybe it was just the user who was better in that case...

Camp Freddy: Mirrorless are / will be cheaper to produce. Get used to it all! Pentax like Olympus before them are paving the way for bottom line on a future range of cameras.

I agree. From the beginning, I thought that DSLR was quite a silly thing. With film, that's the only way to see what you are shooting, so you must bear the weitgh and size of a mirror and prism. But, with digital???
I wear glasses and find DSLR finders rather unconfortable, and very small, dark and useless, compared with my film cameras like my ME Super.
I have no problem getting great photos with my sigma DP2 with no finder at all.
Many people don't like that things evolve and change. They are the kind of people were against the first compact cameras, the first SLR cameras, the first electronic cameras, the first AF cameras, the first digital cameras, etc...

Pakio: I like very much the idea of a mirrorless camera. With digital, we don't really need a prims, specially given the smallish finders of most DSLR...

However, I find the style of the K-01 quite wrong. You may like it or not, but one thing is for sure: It does not suit the style of pentax lenses. I love pentax Limited series lenses, and I dont see a K-01 looking good with them.

A Olympus OM kind looks would have been better...

A good EVF is a good option. A good Live View screen is a good one too. I would be happy with that. I use only that when shooting my DP2 and I get great pictures, even of shooting fast moving objects.

I found no other finder that can compares with my Pentax ME Super, so I may prefer not to have one at all that a bad one.

In reply to:

RoyGBiv: wouldn't they be able to design lenses that mount to the K-mount ring, but with their lens elements recessed into the cavity a bit, or does the electronic contacts get in the way?

Your right, Yamin. I also havea ME Super. However, there is a reason for everything, so there must be one. When you design a product that must be manufactured you find so many issues: available parts and materials, compatibility with other products manufacturing lines, etc...
