I guess in future when monuments and such are commisioned they will need to be sure that the contract is specific that it is work for hire and that the artist has no future claim to the work in any way. He or she gets paid for the work and the nation gets the monument. If they don't agree to the terms, find another person.

ybizzle: Bought a new Pentax Q for $250 that has about the same IQ as this at a fraction of the size and price. What a little gem and it gets compliments whenever people see it. :)

Where are you finding a Pentax Q with f/1.9 lens for $250? B&H certainly doesn't have it for that price.

Francis Carver: 24 MEGAPIXELS jam-packed onto an APS-C sized sensor????

Thanks, Nikon, but no thanks, dudes. Here is yet another camera that nobody had asked for and frankly, probably nobody really needs. Let alone John Q Consumer.

And that color scheme on the body -- pretty garish and almost painful for the eye, frankly.

Buy the black, I don't like red cameras either.

For the price they charge, they ought to include a full version of Photoshop.
