I think pentax should sue nikon for copying their design language . Get back into pure photography, guess that makes those who bought D4 and D800s poseurs.

Anastigmat: Enthusiast APS-C cameras are a shrinking market, because those who are above average in enthusiasm will pay a few hundred dollars more and buy a FF. Those who are not very enthusiastic or not very well heeled will buy the entry level models. That leaves the market with the Goldilocks enthusiasts: not too enthusiastic but enthusiastic enough and well heeled enough
Also entry level FF are gimped in other departments, like AF points or FPS. This is the 7dMarkII that a lot of people want but canon has no desire to make.
This might be the camera for backpacker who are also photographers. Lighter than a DSLR, waterproof so that you don't have to dry bag your camera, and way better image quality than a rugged point and shoot.
D1N0: Really in the Entry level ILC's category? This really should have gone in the enthousiast compact category. Please rescore this camera.
Yes, I was thinking about buying a Q, not to replace a mirrorless or DSLR but my panny LX3. Same sensor size, slower kit lens, but more flexibility to shoot different situations. All the other stuff like adapting old lenses is a bonus. I feel like when DPR makes an apple and oranges comparison, but Pentax has made a Pear.
tecnoworld: Finally nx support! After so long this great system is getting recognized.
I bought a nx100 because of the 1.5 crop factor for use in legacy lenses, good quality and reasonably priced primes, a real lens roadmap, well regarded ergonomics (I think a bit borrowed from pentax). Full manual shooting with an nx is a breeze compared to nex and most m4/3 bodies (besides the 1000 dollar+ om-d) thanks to the two control wheels.
I think Nokia realized that it was falling behind into the darkness of obsolete technology.
We will see with this technology if Nokia will burn bright in the future or fade like all companies do in time.
This was their shot in the dark, but what a shot it was!
