Nikon should come out with Nikon 1 with folded lens system as an updated of their Coolpix series. Their sensor size should be 1" to make it more interesting for upcoming buyer.
Some peoples are blinded as the cause of heritage of cold war era, and ignore that other part of the world also have talent and wisdom. Let see of the review first and not only judge before or never trying it.
Just wait for Sigma version on Pentax mount........
PrebenR: If they would scale this up to an APS-C sensor it could be interesting.
I like 1" sensor size because its flexibility to change a normal tele-lens (fl 200mm) become super tele lens which is super expensive. So, to plunge as nature photographer is not only a dream.
select: I would never buy a Samsung camera... it's crap
No one force you to buy something. You choose and decide which one fit your need and your budget.
Richard Murdey: ...because Nikon 1 was so successful, Samsung knew the world needed another 1" sensor format ILC...
Not the Nikon 1 series, but for the 1" sensor size to meet today IQ standard against smaller sensor which has been already taken by mobile phone.
drummercam: Where Pentax leads (Q-series), others eventually follow.
If Pentax want to compete (win!), they should add to complementits Q series with 1" sensor on it but maintain its lens mount size. The smaller size does not meet today standard of IQ of the image and has been taken over by mobile phone camera.
Surprise me, the role of human being are very dominant on the production line of the process of making of lens.
How to hold this camera when taking picture?
When I read this compatibility camera & lens, make me curious that this TC just re-badge of existing TC from third party manufacturers (Tokina, Tamron etc). Just check on the needs to update firmware for the existing body. May be some hackers will help us to make our existing AF TC to work.
completelyrandomstuff: I don't know if dropping Pentax name is such a good idea for them, but I am sure they have done their market research...
Ricoh decided to drop their compact camera under Pentax name. By logic, they should move their Ricoh GXR camera series to hold Pentax name on it.

I downloaded iso 6400 and its very clean yet sharp even though I didn't use the sharpening slider. It's very very usable. If only Pentax step up their game in their movie quality...
marike6,In term of body design Pentax K30 is much more nicer. It is not only just follow other brand, but an effort to create signature for Pentax products. It also happened with Pentax K-01. Unfortunately, they only create body only, not the lenses & others accessories which should be blend with the body itself.
SIGMA should offer new camera that accept any lens from major manufacturer with mount adapter.
xmeda: Pentax "KAF" really? well, AF would be nice ;)
but it seems to be only "K"
Nice to get this lens on Pentax mount, as there is no fixed lens on this focal length. If Pentax can offer new Pancake lens with same or wider angle view, It will be easy for us to choose.
Richard Murdey: Make no mistake, the GM1 is small. For hilarity, go to camerasize.com and compare against a Nikon D4. O_o
More to the point though, its functionally the same size as a Pentax Q7 .. essentially erasing the desirability of the latter. Once the price settles down to the $400 range, as it surely will, the relevancy of the Nikon V2 and Sony RX100ii also fall into question.
@ Richards, It is true the body is smaller, but when you attached its lens on it become bigger (volumetric).Pls, refer this size comparison, http://www.photographyblog.com/news/panasonic_gm1_v_sony_rx100/
BTW,This camera is worth to be included in the DPReview gear of the year.
1. I thought with Nikon 1 still relevant, especially who built their Nikon DSLR system. They can use Nikon tele-lenses for creating extra long focal length, but for most first buyer will not interesting.2. This camera is not really pocketable compared with Sony RX100II. They need more compact n dedicated lenses for this Lumix GM series.
This camera looks very good. It will be very special if the lenses also small. The kit lens is small but still looks not proportional against the body. Give me some pancake lenses to represent classic focal lens as 24, 28, 35, 50, 105. It will be a killer for traveller.
Just comparing this camera against Pentax MX-1. Both camera almost have identical specification, especially her lens. Its body is more compact which is pocket-able than its sibling. I thought this camera will perform very good on normal lighting.
