Spec wise this looks like a great update. But aesthetically, I find this design incredibly awkward and kind of baffling.
As the semi-professional model, the design of the K-5 is logical, functional, restrained....completely fit for purpose, and I think that it looks (and works) great. As a consumer model, the K-01 has a somewhat whimsical, design forward aesthetic, but to me it also looks great....it's an indulgent design, but it is cohesive and it has a clear concept.
This on the other had, seems completely out of left field to me....it's design DNA seems to have little relation to any of Pentax's current interchangeable lens cameras. It looks "styled" not "designed". To me it looks like a decade old street bike, or a pair of basketball shoes.
The K-5 and K-01 are cameras that I would buy, at least partially, because of their design. This is a camera that I would never buy because of it's design. I REALLY hope that the K-5 successor doesn't look anything like this.
In the exposure adjustment image showing three variation's of a woman's portrait, it looks like there is a floating palette in the bottom right corner.
What is this? How does one enable floating palettes over a full screen image in Lightroom?
