My thought is that the top line market goal of this camera is to stem the defection from the Pentax brand; second to entice old Pentax owners back. Building new market share is likely a far third I suspect.

I agree with the ordering. But I'd add in the goal of getting existing users to finally upgrade rather then using their K-5's etc. forever. They're neither brand defectors nor former users, they just haven't bought a new body in years and years.

New market share will come, or not, as Pentax develops its vision of a dslr for the future.

And as Canikon users decide the relative importance to them of their brand, versus having a DSLR OVF rather than a MILC (versus, again, just using the last body they bought as long as possible).
