Douglas; the Pentax Q seems very niche, possibly a wink to the old miniature Pen cameras. But from thought to execution of the idea? I think the whole Q system is a mistake.
With the K-01... ...I don't know. That large a body and no EVF? They hire a "famous" designer and he is obviously not so well versed in designing cameras. Heck, I could design a better camera in a day, ergonomically. It is not that the K-01 is ugly, but it is clearly not properly designed - a camera that you have to hold up with arms bent/stretched...Show more →
Agreed. To tell you the truth, and I should obviously tread lightly in this thread, I think Ricoh lost their way with the GXR concept, too. It has been more interesting to me since the M module came out, but I'd much rather keep the same lenses for several years and upgrade the camera body, occasionally, rather than buy sensors and lenses that are fused. Of course, the M module is a different story, but I'd still rather have it in a thinner, dedicated M body, or, better yet, with another shallower mount that takes M lenses via adapter. Essentially, I'd like to see a more "traditional" Ricoh mirrorless system, and I was hoping that's what Pentax would deliver in the K-01.
I've been seriously been considering the GXR + M module, but that's despite the odd system design, not because of it.
