If it has flip/tilted LCD, it will be perfect replacement for my K-01. I will skip this one, though I believe K-S1 has very attractive feature set.
falconeyes: I hope the market of Asian female dSLR shooters is big enough.
Sure,the market here is always bigger than Europe
Suddenly it becomes the most popular camera in DPR ? How come ?
it looks like the big brother of Pentax 560mm F/5.6
http://store.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/contents/campaign_Q-S1_cp.aspxGood camera for my daughter.
phoenix15: I like the color. Since the original Q, I haven't considered buying it till this new Q-S1.
The thing is, why pentax ricoh can't get the design right from long ago. Q10 or Q7 are ugly camera. Q-S1 is about perfect. S might be, stylist ?
Zvonimir Tosic: That new large button is:- Emergency transporter "Beam me up Scotty" button?- Tuner for built in radio?- A simple handgrip?- IR/UV/Phase matter sensor array? - Missing button eye, which, with a new lens cap with smiley on it, will transform the Q into a smiling face of the Thomas the Tank?
I think it is focusing assistance. Half press and then snap snap, you get the pics.
I like the color. Since the original Q, I haven't considered buying it till this new Q-S1.
So what could be the next now Pentax ?1. Pentax K-02, mirrorless with new mount to maintain compactness2. Pentax FF with 36 MP, DSLR. 3. Lastly, lenses with better AF. 12-24, 17-70, 16-50, 50-135. They all need new updates.
xmeda: 1 cross type AF sensor, horrible viewfinder, painful ergonomics.. = just producing more electronic waste
Where is the Pentax K50/500 full review??
Yes, where is Pentax K-50 review. That is what I want to know. If DPR has their time to review D3300, why not with K-50, which I am sure is not complicated camera.

Most obviously, no Ricoh badge on the back that was complained by hardcore pentaxians. If one read K-3 review in page 4, DPR even wrote: "The real changes are on the back, and we're not talking about the 'Ricoh' logo on the K-3." :)
Apparently, Ricoh do listen to the fans. This 645z is truly a winner in MP league.And maybe pro FF shooter will give some credit to this machine. I am curious to see the image quality compared to Nikon D4s or Nikon D800e, or Canon 1DX.
Hope DPR will review it faster than what they did to Pentax K-3
I won't buy it, unless it is designed by Marc Newson:)
I actually like unboxing like this just for fun. Next time please do some video also, and make your channel in youtube for camera preview.
very interesting additional accessory for Pentax K-3. Hope the K-3 review could be speed up. Thanks !
Zvonimir Tosic: After seeing the Pentax K-01, all these retro designs and concepts do look outdated. But despite the boring old look and feel, I hope people will appreciate these news from Olympus.
True, for few people this might be good. But, to my opinion, the designer is not creative to create something fresh and new.
Wow, 36 Mpx is really a big jump from 12 Mpx in D700. If it is lighter than D700, then this is my dream DSLR to replace my current Nikon D-90.
I am not going to buy anything else in the future if I have nikon D800. I actually don't care about video capability, since I am not really into it. I love taking picture, thus the higher pixel count does matter so much. With nikon D-90, I got much grainy photo at ISO higher than 800.
My best combo for the next camera will be Nikon 800 and Pentax K-01 to replace my mirrorless olympuss.
I don't understand why many comments did not like this K-01 design. Me in the opposite. It is really interesting camera. I have Nikon D90 and also Oly EP-1 for street photography which I want it to be replaced.
This K-01 is the best candidate. Considering the features; they are very good. The design is exceptionally different. I am quite jealous with the pentax's products for a long time. They are stylish and not boring, and the most important thing is the top quality material.
I am 90% percent will buy it. Waiting for the sample photos.
