There are two problems: no 60 fps at FHD and low bitrate. As for price - I think it will be lower rather soon.
RichRMA: Body looks like Olympus's "Tough" P&S cameras.

Yes. Very interesing photo. :) It seems to me this photos are made with love, with soul. British photos are photos and it's all. So less emotions. :) It doesn't mean that it's bad....But I prefer more emotional photos of birds and animals.
What about you? We discuss photos. You comments are inappropriate.
Syria and Ukraine are good for CIA's hunting.
It's common heron's pullus who fell into swamp in time of hurricane.
I mean this photos are more positive than British.

BobYIL: Smallest of the MF format; only 30 x 45mm, a little larger than the FF... Only 37.5MP, a little more than the D800 series 36MP... A phased out CCD sensor to turn obsolete in couple of years in the world of MF-CMOS. Hopefully they can sell this "only 100 units" of limited edition. (BTW, would it differ much if the new lens was offered for $4K?)
No any sense for Sony to go the new market. Rather special and narrow. It's simplier to sell sensors to leaders of MF.Medium format mirrorless - too big sensor. Need very powerfull battery. No mirror = it effects to IQ. And it's no good for work.
Pentax 645Z has video mode already and LV.
New Leica S3 will be 44*33 mm with 50 MP SONY sensor.
steelhead3: Another use of the Sony 24mpix?
The sensor is made by STMicroelectronics in Grenoble.
No. The M uses a CMOS 24-megapixel image sensor designed exclusively for Leica by the Belgian company CMOSIS
ogl: It means new camera will be soon and nothing else.
I can't expect K-3's successor...Ha-ha...But it's easy to wait for K-50's successor. :))))
Andy Dan: The next step will be a golden one like the old LX :-P but made out of plastic.
New lenses that's what Pentax really needs. How about some new 2.8/4 zooms and 1.4/1.8 primes Ricoh? You will never launch the fabled full-frame so newer aps-c glass is a must. Fuji did it in style from scratch.
It's a pity that Pentax has had some bad management and marketing in the last 10-15 years.
DA50/1.8, FA50/1.4, DA*55/1.4, FA43/1.9, FA31/1.8, FA77/1.8.
Don't be lazy - find the dates of announcement of limited edition cameras from Pentax.

Only one gap is 2011 - because of selling Pentax
It means new camera will be soon and nothing else.
Siddharth: At $250 it actually competes with all compacts with very limited zoomsNikon Coolpix S800 seriesCanon Powershot series (not all)Even Sony H400 is more expensive..
This looks like a clever product strategy...
Anyway, what are the price of the same cameras of other brands?
Canon PowerShot SX50 HS - 400 USD, Lumix DMC-FZ200 - 600 USD, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V - 470 USD, Nikon COOLPIX P600 - USD430, Fujifilm FinePix S1 - USD400
