samhain: Too bad it doesn't have a viewfinder.
As a designer, I would be hard pressed to justfiy an OVF with the current screens we have now. Besides, the lens is a zoom--no use framing with an OVF set at 28mm when you're set at 100mm.
For me it only misses the mark by not taking the best Ricoh and Pentax have to offer like Ricoh's GR Digital's screen, interface and excellent Hybrid AF/Snap mode; and Pentax's Hyper-program and weathersealing .... that and no hot shoe.
