    But it is heavy.

    The trouble is that Pentax only puts 14-bit RAW in its flagships I think. For a landscape photographer, that 2 bits can get very useful especially during clear sky sunsets/sunrises, where the color gradation will start to band under 12-bit RAW.

    Also another reason why I'm waiting for secondhand XE-2 prices to drop.
    True true i agree bro and 14 bit is really important for landscaper. Anw we still dont know whether k-s1 is 12 or 14 bit raw but most probably is 12 bit. I getting it more for light weight travel...anw just wait for it performance report b4 deciding l....

    I think this camera will either have people loving the looks or hating it.

    Do we know the purpose of the lights on the grip?

    I actually think the camera looks quite good if you switch off all the blinking lights. The shape is very modern, a mixture of curves and hard lines.

    Good point. I can imagine if you are taking with a large group of photographers. The subject will be giving you the full eye contact compared the other photographers. He or she will be looking at the lights and wondering " What is that?".

    Ricoh Pentax K-S1: http://youtu.be/t-VikYnSBb8



    I got to say that it seems pretty good.
    Esp for an entry camera.
    20mp, no AA filter with AA simulator.
    100% view pentaprism not a cheap penra mirror
    The LED makes sense too...

    Oh man... Where's my dual wheel?!

    I pray that they do not remove the hardware controls on their next flagship camera.... *prays hard*

    From a K-01 user point of view, the K-S1 looks more from K-01 than from K-50.

    I think they remove dual wheel to reduce complexity to new users, I have been living with single wheel dial in K-x, K-01 since beginning,

    that may be the only thing that they can think to stop stealing sales from K-3,

    K-S1's K-3 feature stealing

    * same bigger 0.95x 100% viewfinder as K-3, (K-50, 0.92x100%)
    * AA-simulator,
    * Flu-card remote control,
    * similar MP, 20-24

    What is better than K-3, K-50, K-01
    * 100g lighter than K-50
    * 250g lighter than K-3
    * same weight as K-01
    * 1cm slimmer than K-50 and K-3, still K-S1 is 1cm taller and deeper than K-01


    What is slower comparing to K-3
    * better than K-50, slower than K-3 processor (M < MII < MIII)
    * 5.4fps vs K-50 6fps vs K-3 8.4fps
    * same focus system as K-50, 11 points,
    * same meter system as K-50


    if K-S1 got dual dial, it is too close to be K-3,

    For K-01 users, it is good choice to upgrade to, maybe not K-30, K-50 users.


    ====================================

    They remove the AA battery option, which now I think it is ok, since reducing weight is more important in the competition,




    Another reason K-S1 is more appealing for small size than K-50





    Overall design is better,

    Strangely now for me, the colored versions look the best.
    In fact better than any other colored dslr so far
