"Pentax camera manufacturing subsidiary in Vietnam" is not true. Pentas has a lens assemblent plant in Vietnam (consisting of two factories). The camera manufacturing subsidiary is in the Phillipines.

And instead of a toy-filter, this camera can have true toy-lenses. Wow. This is really a digital version of the Lomo! It's so fun I have to laugh and this camera would surely has a cult following.

I like it. It is a digital Auto 110, like many Pentax users was longing for. (and remember, the 110 film was smaller than 24x36). The new sensor is backlit, so there should be some improvement in high ISO compared to traditional p&s compact cameras. As always, the IQ will be the selling point. My Optio 30 with 3Mp had great IQ, this one should be better and and I'm pleased with that. Maybe no match for APS-C, but for standard sized prints and internet images this will surely be more than enough.
