kadarpik: so far we have seen excellent results from pentax small glass (Limited pancake), AF motor, Flash sync to 1/2000, ND filter, not bad lens at all. Leaf shutter has it's advantages as well. Of course DOF is large but you can PP your images today.

DOF is DOF, any artificial blurring looks terrible. YMMV

Nuno Souto: Oh look! A digital Auto110!

@Andy: Frank was comparing sensor sizes: This camera has a body roughly the size of the the 110, whereas the 110 has an imager roughly the size of fourthirds.
You are both right, just looking at different properties of the 110.

Today I learned of "pillars of light" for the first time on another site. I hadn't heard of that before and now, within just a few hours, I also see your excellent winner :)
Great colours and I like that there's enough light in the foreground.
