I think you mean "it isn't difficult at all"

I think it is a smart strategic move for them...Beside cheap alternatives,now big boys started to get in the market.

What is wrong with the articulated LCD?..If you don't like it,you don't have to use it...It doesn't make a camera less professional!
Sony's LCD on A99 is pretty darn useful.
Why do you need live view in this camera segment?
Why do you need video mode in this camera segment?
Why hybrid autofocus and dual pixel?
Since the LCD doesn't compromise on build quality and weather sealing,then why not?

Joed700: Okay, it's great to see something new from Canon. However, the fact that there is no mention of improvement in DR worries me. Also, this baby is $500 less that the Nikon D5 confirms my suspicion...Canon usually charge way more than Nikon....

Not true!
As a Nikon shooter I can say,Canon equivalent gear is usually slightly cheaper!
And if it is giving the same(or more) performance,as a customer,what is wrong being cheaper?

What about other brands,did they release their reports?
Maybe If we compare,we can find the answer of Samsung's decision.
I am really sorry because Samsung decided shuttering its camera business. :/

IMO;In close future,companies who have mobile phone background will remain standing in camera business.

RedDog Steve: Still no hint at the resolution ?

Nowadays (and prolly in close future it will still be like that),people are switching mirrorless full-frame cameras,unless if they need the best possible AF tracking (and Sony is just about to catch,for some already caught)...So while the things are like that,Pentax is WAY too late to release a FF camera.
And now even if they wanted to release a FF,it should have been a mirrorless...And if it shared the same mount with Sony,then downfall of CaNikon would accelerate.

Xentinus: I can't find a reason to buy a such camera,while you can put a pancake lens in front of sony a6000.I know a little bit bigger but you can change your lens any time you want and you also have cool AF system and viewfinder.
Or you can go with Pana/Oly and cool lenses!

These are just my thoughts...But while saying them,I don't deny the quality of this Ricoh camera.I know very well how good Pentax is when it is about image quality!..Sharp,natural contrasty with plenty of fine details.But there are other things too,like....Autofocus consistency,versatility(for example you can't change the lens of this camera),viewfinder,tilt screen(very useful especially with ultra-wide or fisheye lenses) etc.

How much important the image quality is,when it is about street photography?

@Cameracist,
I usually tend to call them as "pancake" when they are small (very light weighted as well)...But you are right.
On the other hand,since they are not pocketable with even those pancake lenses,then not a big deal.
Beside all these,Ricoh doesn't have a viewfinder...I would never prefere a camera w/o VF.

Another point is,nowadays almost any camera (with a sensor at least MFT sized) has decent enough quality when paired with a 200 USD lens like samsung 30mm or sigma 19mm...And beside that when it is street photography,what do you care THE MOST?
I am asking this question to all of you!
About street photography,I care about the composition and story the most!..A MFT camera with a 12-32 lens or Sony with 16-50 wud be enough for me (if you need big size prints,then maybe a better lens).

I guess it is gonna be Sony's new 42mp sensor...when they started this stupid tease,there was 36 mp sensor (which is also used for Nikon d800),but then I guess they have changed their minds.

Despite I agree with you;Sony,Canon,Nikon are making photography easier,especially Sony...Panasonic for video.

I didn't check for the specification of the camera yet...I will probably not buy it,but I have to say;
the more they look retro,the more I have a desire to have them :))
Such a cool design!
