    Totally agree with you that is a high end PNS, so totally silly to compare to DSLRs.
    the righteous indignation gets a bit amusing after a few pages

    and this kind of narrow thinking is misplaced! its laughable, how they working themselves up into a epileptic fit over bigger sensor, FF, DOF control and why this is not a "serious" camera.

    not everyone wants to lug a DSLR everywhere they go, not everyone pixel peeps and measurebates. 90% of camera users just want a small camera that looks good and takes "nice" pictures that they can share on facebook.

    thats who the Q is made for.

    I bet this Q will be owned by many soon. Its useless to even think many wont buy it. since the amount of people making noise of it is roughly 10%. People will complain2 but at the end of the day...they still BUY. U cant beat the DEVIL of BBB & LBA.

    Does that mean that Pentax won't make a m4/3 equivalent mirrorless camera now?

    They'll have this and the one with an aps-c sensor, so they'd appeal to those wanting an EVIL with a smaller/ larger sensor than an m43. Not a bad strategy considering that the m43 market is already pretty crowded...

    Sensor size comparison

    Interesting to note that some handphone's sensor are much bigger than the Pentax Q.

    Nokia N8 for example has a camera sensor around 30% bigger than the Pentax Q.

    Its really another take on high end PnS camera, so comparing to u4/3 and APS-C isn't very helpful (sure loose one ). More suitable to compare with G13, LX5, GXR, etc. IMO, the sensor size between those are not so significant to differ too much in performance. In the end, still need those sample photos to see how good it is compared to the other advanced pns.

    Of course not! Pentax is with the APC-C camp which is superior because of its bigger sensor. No way they will want to downgrade because creating more opportunities for people to buy their lenses makes more sense. If they went with m4/3, their competitors will benefit instead. Don't you want a mirrorless Pentax camera that can use all your existing lenses especially the DA40...heh heh

    Is this some perspective trick or something? the pentax Q looks very small in the key chain pic. but when put beside the nex and gf3, it's just a little smaller.

    This Q may not target for people like me - concerning about the sensor size and the compatibility with existing k-mount lens.

    Looks very clear to me. Just look at the car key as the reference point. They are typically the length of a bluetooth mouse. So the propotions are correct. BTW, just heard that with prime kit lens it cost around US$800. Still pretty steep but then again, there is no reference point for this as no such product exist on the market today.

    I hope they sell tons!

    I think the USD 800 is the greatest challenge. If it's the same price as the G12, it's a far easier sell.

    On the bright side, from a functionality perspective it's great - just need to maintain that while adding a larger sensor! APS-C and PK mount pls!

    No worries, that's just HOYA's pricing strategy.
    see the initial price of K5, then you will know their story

    As usual, Singapore is one of the first places in the world for new Pentax products to show up... beer and all!
    The cameras look quite cute.
