I know what you mean

This company has gone berserk with a Q and then a K-01. We still don't know what lies ahead with Ricoh owning it, some 7 months since it bought Pentax. There was talk of some new camera announcements by Mar 2013, but at this time there are 4 different camera directions, 645D, K-5, Q, and this funny mirrorless called K-01. The need to develop different lines of lenses alone will be a huge burden for a company with a tiny market share, 5% or less. Beware.

There is a reason why the K-5, with an original RPP of $1500, is now selling under $1000.
