Re: Review K3 mark lll?

The Japanese like to wax poetic over industrial design. Had a Miata MX-5 a few years ago, and it certainly came with its share of dreamy design adjectives. But my old 2008 Pontiac Solstice wiped out the Miatas in SCCA racing, has more room inside, and corners better than a Corvette. But being rushed to market, if in Japan it probably inspired wabi-sabi poetry, glorifying the art of imperfection. Like how the top won't go up anymore, and how you have to take off a front fender to change the battery.

Anyway, I like the Pentax poetry. I'd bet that, like the Miata car, it comes from proud engineers rather than marketing folks. Engineers convinced that their designs go beyond just plastic and metal into something that becomes part of us, enhancing the days and nights of our lives.
