Raul: Very interesting but... I don't like, actually do not accept, monthly basis. I buy, I own.

I'm in the same league of yours. I'm an On1 Photo 10 user and haven't subscribed for their services. I hope they don't push much for it as Adobe.

I really don't understand the complain about Canon and Nikon stick with DSLRs. Both have huge systems and probably are led by marketing numbers. There are tons of mirrorless options for those who want it. Panasonic, Olympus and Fuji are doing a great job!!

I can understand the complaint about a D400 but I think that there must have a money decision involved. Sales numbers might guide the company.

There is no reason for a DSLR body with a 4/3 sensor. With the mirrorless development it's becoming difficult even to justify APS-C sensored DSLRs.

It's a great camera that certainly will meet the demand of some people and will be a landmark on camera concepts. Maybe in a near future some company launches one of this with viewfinder and interchangeable lenses but more affordable than Leica.

Wye Photography: Congratulations to Sony for making this camera. This is the camera Canon and Nikon SHOULD have made (for too long they have been making cameras for the market and exploiting the more megapixels is better myth). Way out of my budget. I think I would love to have one, or at least to try and use. From a long time Olympus user, this it going to be a breakthrough camera. A brave move! Well done Sony!

Sorry Buddy,but Sony lauched RX100 with 20MP while Nikon V1 and J1 had only 10MP. I agree with you about the other points.

Paul Guba: Yeah!!!!! Now Sony makes an overpriced camera that looks like a Leica. Clearly the folks at Sony saw how many people would shell out buckets of cash for retrovision.

Well, I'm not going to buy this cam. But this camera is much cheaper than Leica's fullframe. I don't know why people here complain about everything! Just don't buy - you have this choice too.

Simon97: Good detail retention at high ISO without being too noisy. Probably as good as it gets at this price point.

I still think Pentax needs a more entry level model like Canon, Nikon and Sony. One can purchase a kit for $500 these days at any department store. The entry model is a gateway into a system for many folks.

When I decided to enter the DSLR world I almost went for Pentax K-5. It has everything I wanted in a camera at that moment. However, I noticed that Pentax lenses had a huge price increase lately so I gave up and went for another system.

I think it's good for photographers that Fuji is trying to do good stuff. It will certainly increase competition in the market. The main drawback seems to be the focus system that may let someone (like myself) thinking twice before going into something like the X system. I hope they can improve their focus system so that we can get really great X cameras (the lenses seems already be very good).

JackM: Didn't they learn anything from the SD1 pricing debacle? This camera should cost no more than a Sony RX100.

The cost difference could be explained by the larger sensor. However, taking into consideration tha Sony already overprice its products, Sigma at a lower price point could entitle them to a higher market share.

JesperMP: Didnt notice until now that the MSRP is 280 USD.

Some of the recent "affordable" super-zooms have ditched the EVF. Which is bad since a super-zoom really need an EVF.
Also the lens being F3.1-F5.9 instead of the typical F3.5-F6.3 is a small step in the right direction.
1080p@30 fps is allright if not exceptional.
Tilting 460k LCD is not bad at all.
Has an analog dial.
And does the ring around the lens control focus or zoom ?

All in all, the price a quite reasonable for what you get.

2009 Sont HX1 was f/2.8-5.6 and current Panasonic FZ200 is f/2.8 throughout the whole range. However, at this price point this camera is definitely a strong option among SZ cams.

I used to have a superzoom camera and it is a very good traveler companion: light with a long reach and able of good 6" x 4" prints. Pentax has a name in the photography history but I think something is wrong because the camera specs are a bit outdated and not quite exciting - there are a lot of comeptition out there. But for sure it will attend a niche of the market due to the price. But I wonder if someone looking for a superzoom camera compares it to the Panasonic FZ200 for example, the price will be the only factor in favor to the Pentax model.

philo123: Calm down guys! there's a lot of animosity out there towards this camera. I thought we bought cameras based on our needs? I bought a K5 because it fitted my need better than anything on the market. I live in a rainy part of the UK and wanted a weather resistant camera with top build quality and a decent set of good priced lenses. Nothing came close to the K5 with those credentials. If the K-01 is not to your tastes don't buy it- simple. I won't be buying as it's not what I'm looking for but the sensor and IQ of Pentax is superb and the prime lenses are sublime.(check out the review on digitalrev of their pancake 40mm against the opposition http://www.digitalrev.com/article/pancake-day-pancake-lens-test/OTM4NjE0NQ_A_A). Saying that I'd prefer the K-01 with a limited prime than those silly looking long lenses on the SONY NEX series ;-)

@Richard I understand the point of Manuel: what is the point for going mirrorless with the K-01 if it has no advantage over Pentax DSLRs besides price?

If Sony could do it, they would be the king of MILC.

Carlos Henrique: My question is: who would buy this camera instead of the K-5? No considerable size advantage and you still miss the viewfinder and phase detection AF. I would definitely buy a K-5 if I knew that Pentax would come up with a full frame or something worth for an update in the future between the K-5 and the 645d.

At no moment I talked about DSLR replacement... Just tell me one reason for someone who has no DSLR buy a K-01 and not a K-5. But please with no bad language.

In reply to:

shaocaholica: Why bother going mirrorless if you're going to use a mount designed to accommodate a mirror?

I think that size would be probably the greatest reason for a DSLR user go for a MILC and this camera has almost no advantage over Pentax DSLRs.

Besides the high price, the only drawback for this camera so far is a good small prime lens like Fuji's on X100. Wouldn't Sony or Zeiss be able to make good small lenses at 10, 24, 70mm?
