Finally. The Leica 'Pornstar' edition is upon us.

Great camera for discrete street shooting, a blue flash light and a siren would enhance the 'stealth' experience.

Gazeomon: Apart from being small and portable, this thing has very little going for it unless it's used for selfie giggles and low quality footage.

In my view the 'Spark' ist just a toy for casual applications. I am thinking about the 'Mavic' a lot for more serious image quality. I like the size of the 'Spark' though and I am not miserable just because I am making a point You are unable to comprehend.

kamituel: Fortunately being Adobe-free is getting easier by day:

Lightroom -> Capture One (or other)
Photoshop -> Affinity Photo

Yes, it's getting weird and hazy with Adobe. I am used to Lightroom and have used it for years and still use it but I think that Capture One Pro is worth a try. I need a certain predictability with my Photo software.

That was my first thought too. It's not if I switch, it's when I switch.

I think I'll stick with my Samsung NX 500 a little while longer.

The 100th anniversary has a smell of a funeral due to lack of inventiveness and progressive attitude.

Is it a 'bodge' or a 'hack' ?

@ Davinator - Well then, Fuji seems to think that a Bayer sensor makes better sense on their MF camera. Maybe You can elaborate why the X Trans sensor does not make perfect sense...to non trolls?

Xentinus: Well...I don't know where to start;
1-No hybrid AF!!
2-Dated AF system, which is not just FAR behind other DSLR cameras, but ALSO behind mirrorless cameras! SIGH!!!
3-DSLR cameras still have advantage of having better battery life...But with this KP, it is worse!
4-No 4K video...Wake up Pentax, you were late for digital cameras and now you are being late once again. (Canon, Sony and Panasonic were always good at video...now Fuji caught them up, Olympus too, oh God even Samsung!)
5-Dated LCD
6-Pentax cameras have always been compact and ergonomics. But with this camera, it has almost the same size, but no longer ergonomics!!

Dear Pentax, you don't know how much I wanted to use your awesome limited lenses on a camera which focuses properly!
First you lost your advantage, being compact system, now you are losing ur advantage on having awesome compact lenses.

Ok, cheap little fanboy to Your face then. Happy?

The Pentax AF is simply not up to snuff! I have a K5IIs and AF is almost unusable. I have a K3 and it's better but certainly not great. The AF is hesitant and often I have to press the AF button twice to make sure I nailed the focus. Otherwise I like Pentax cameras a lot for several reasons. Especially my compact ltd. primes. I was hoping for a compelling improvement of my K3. The KP is not!

In reply to:

Gazeomon: Bought my K3 Nov. 2013 and is still my main camera (+ 5 ltd. primes and 1.4 converter). Is this hideously ugly looking KP thing that Ricoh wants me to replace my K3 with? It brings hardly anything new to the table in terms of practical photographic features. Well, the tilting screen is nice but has low res. and it's smaller than the K3's. I'll stick with the K3 a bit longer because I am still quite happy with it although the AF system sucks at times. If I feel like upgrading I am looking at Sony's mirrorless offerings in a year or two.

I hope You are right and Ricoh releases something more substantial as an APSC flagship later on. The K70 looks much more appealing and is a lot cheaper than this frumpy looking design disaster with a buffer of 8 RAW files, one card slot and probably the same old snaggy indecisive AF system. I was hoping to shoot my ltd. primes with a new snappy compact APSC camera that employs the latest tech available.

8 frame RAW buffer. Seriously? It feels like when I left Nikon for Pentax 4 years ago when the D300 was 'replaced' with the D7000. My next stint maybe with Sony and some Zeiss primes. Sayonara, Pentax.
