http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/pentax-q-s1/pentax-q-s1A.HTM Seems Pentax came out with a new mirrorless camera with a 1/1.7 chip. Would of nice to have seen this 4 years ago. Call me pessimistic but it seems more like DOA (Dead On Arrival) camera. what exact niche does it serve? It about the same size as my PM2 and my PM2 does almost everything the S1 does. S1 has HDR and my PM2 doesn't Only plus I see is: knobs to play with. Would you buy this? If so.. for what reason? what purpose does it serve?.... that your other camera(s) don't meet.
