American Photo: Editor's Choice - The Triumph of the Adorable

Pentax unveils the smallest, lightest interchangeable-lens compact yet.

It's a 1-page article on p69.

Highlights -
Smaller sensor to avoid the bulky lenses on larger sensor ILCs
Smaller than iPhone and weighs 6.35 oz
1.3 oz 47/1.9 protrudes out only 0.9" and is just 1.8" across
43mm and standard zoom feature quiet and fast focusing AF motor
Pentax claims that their back illuminated sensor and new processor reduces noise
They want to test against G12 and LX5 to see whether it is an improvement

It is pictured with a humongous 3rd party "Made in China" bounce flash.

And p70 devotes 1/3 page to the Ricoh GXR A12, the M-mount unit. So Ricoh-Pentax gets a little more exposure.
