Francis Carver: Yawn.... yet another same old same old digi-cam. Hurrah, I guess.

This one does not even have an electronic viewfinder, let alone optical.

I take my in yellow!!

Finally somebody realised it.
These days a mirrorless must have an EVF, preferably in-built one.

It is a fashion accessory, this camera,nothing more.

umbalito: DA Limited Zoom??!! DA Limited Zoom! DA Limited Zoom!

Not quite sure what to make of the DA* ultra zoom either. From the markings on the chart, it almost looks like a 24-80. Pretty useless for APS-C. I doubt they can make an 18-200 f/2.8? Unless they're turning the DA* nomenclature to mean weather-sealed only, and no longer constant aperture and weather-sealed.

A zoom that they should have made years ago to stop people leaving. Everybody was asking for a star quality walk-around zoom.
Even now it is slotted to 2013 "or later".

Pentax seems to be making fashion accessories lately. Designed by renowned designers!!
