Oh my sides, Karl!

Clint Dunn: So they make a great looking P&S and then tack on a cheap looking tiltable screen....ughh. Am I the only one who doesn't want a tilting screen on my camera?? So much unnecessary depth added to the camera.

No, you're not.

How nice. Now there's hardly anything to complain about on DPR, now that nobody can say they don't review anything/review only superzooms.

Jman13: Where do you put your thumb?

I would imagine that this was designed by the phone folks...

cesaregal: More reliable than a camera phone in my opinion:
- glass lens (6 elements in 5 groups)
- electronic VR
- contrast-detect TTL AF
- macro close-up
- ISO 80-1600
- exposure compensation +/- 2 EV
- 190 shots per charge
- 7,3 GB internal memory.
Look at samples: http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/coolpix/style/s01/sample.htm

Galaxy S (the 'ancient' first one):
Plastic lenses (I guess)
Electronic VR
CD TTL AF
Macro close-up
ISO 100-800
Exp. comp. +/- 2EV
1000+ shots per charge
8GB internal memory.

Not that bad I'd say...

Ross the Fidller: Oh No! Not another X camera! ;)

Actually, it looks like they're trying to attract people that couldn't afford the OM-D (silver model) with some identifiable similarities. Why not go with the 'look' if it helps sales. :)

I think the X-5 should remind you of the silver K-5 ;)

unotisto: What's with copying Pentax all of a sudden?

Actually, I was talking about the 40/2.8 XS (which is anorexic compared to this, although it does not have an AF motor). Pentax also has a 40/2.8 Limited, which is in another class (build quality and design).

EDIT: and the design is called Tessar and was invented by a guy working for Zeiss (surprise surprise) in 1902.

arpikusz: This is the best looking Pentax camera ever! Blue looks awesome!
Now they just need to come out with a DSLR for $499. :)

The K-r is available here for 499€.

arpikusz: Why can't Pentax sell this lens for $150? Both Nikon and Canon has 50mm 1.8 lenses for around $100-$150...

Anton, you're kidding, right?

In reply to:

locke_fc: What I don't get is why all manufacturers insist on releasing 50mm lenses for APS-C bodies.
The 50mm has all reason to be for FF, as it approaches the normal angle of view. In APS-C though, it's pointless. The equivalent 75mm is neither here nor there: too short for portrait, too long for walk around and general purpose shooting.

So why this fixed mentality that APS-C needs a fast 50mm? I don't get it. Anyone looking for a portrait lens on cropped sensors would better served by a 60-70mm lens.

Like Nawknai said, they're darn cheap to make. Most designs are tried and true, so you don't need to invest much into optical design. And if you ARE starting from scratch, you only need to design half the lens.

I don't get it why people are so upset. It's a very KISS approach.

Well done. Searching for "K-5" actually gets you Pentax K-5 and not Canon 5D.

Do you mind listing the model you make claims on?

I'm interested in the battery life of something like this. You'd need a very capable processor for something like this. The 800mhz ARM comes to mind, but then we'll begin to measure the battery life in hours again, not clicks.

Cy Cheze: Where is tha Samsung Tegra 3 tablet? Several Android tablet makers promised 4-core tablets to compete with the new iPad 3, but why are none for sale? There is only the Asus Transformer Prime, with its bad speaker and hobbled GPS. Why does Samsung have 4G trouble with FFC while Apple does not? Wither Acer, Toshiba, or Lenovo? Why the postponements until July or later? Delays until October, just for the sake of Windows 8? Troubles with ICS and Jelly Bean? If no other contestants show up at the race, Apple will win by default.

Agree with first poster, but @audijam: Still haven't gotten over the 1DX, eh? Does everyone reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllly have to b*tch about things that they don't like?

I know I'll buy another Nikon. The 75-150 series e. Something that will probably never need Nikon's service.
