My sense is Pentax was so far behind the competition in having anything resembling a full lineup of competitive enthusiast cameras that they decided to get as many "good enough" products out the door as possible and leave the innovation for another day. This camera is basically just an Oly XZ-2 without hot shoe and accessory port but at a slightly lower price. I guess you could say similar "get it out the door" comments about the latest round of K-5 offerings, too.

I think you've nailed it Jim. This explains the MX-1, the K-5 II punt, as well as the run-of-the mill X5. The real show starts at CP+.
