Everlast66: I think Pentax should complain and get Leica to change the name, the same way 40 years ago Leica complained and made Olympus change their mount to OM-1, they were initially going to call it M-1.
How hypocritical by Leica, with their history of protecting their mount naming, but now using Pentax's Q mount naming.
This is NOT interchangable lens camera and Leica Q is camera not mount name.
pdelux: Looks like a Panasonic Lens... who copied who?
mais51, what's wrong with Eastern European assembly labours?

DP, why do you write "which covers an effective focal length range of 210-600mm" using "effective" instead of "equivalent"?

"But nothing else offers the same balance of size, autofocus, and interchangeable lenses." - how about Pentax Q7?
Dear DPReview, please add to overview table information about image stabilisation (YES/NO, lens/sensor based). That could be valuable.
It's another way to collect data of trackable and identifiable gear usage. I suppose that information to some organisations or companies have very high value. Even if no data about actual people are reported to anyone, there are very interesting and valuable analytical decisions available.
Seems more like masked fuji ad.
Thank you all for your appreciation. Great, I agree, I sometimes have a hard time deciding how much sharpening to apply.
Sorry dpreview, it isn't USER poll for Best Camera of 2012.

DPreview, please add Pentax K-5 II (K-5 IIs) - this camera is announced this year, and many pentaxians prefer it (and also the old K-5) over the K-30.And "s" version is quite unique and deserves to be highlighted among the other APS-C cameras.
At first I thought where's the final finished picture?, but then I realized - this is "art".
