What is this? I don't even
Apparently the new 40mm f/2.8 XS! I thought the current pancake was small but this is like a lens the size of my bodycap! WOW!

HDR on the mode dial is a good idea.

It has some grippy slots cut into the tip of it, so I am guessing DOF preview. And ON/OFF.

Why DOF for something that does not have an optical viewfinder?

I am very excited! Plans to buy a Oly E-PL1 just died, and I might even want to have the 40XS The difference between FA43 and DA40 was too small to keep both, but the XS is definitely much smaller

I already have the amazing FA 40mm pancake so that would make it hard to rationalize the new 40mm XS but it really depends on the price. I already get a lot of comments on how small the pancake is on my K-5...good conversation starter if nothing else with the XS!

You are right on the ON/OFF, I just check the other forum for pictures on the top and it says ON/OFF.

DOF preview still makes sense even with a LCD, to stop down the lens and see the DOF on screen. Or am I wrong?

It also has a green button, so I guess it will also do metering of for eg manual lenses the same as usual.

I see two different models. K-01 and something else. Is that a k-r replacement?

The link from above. There is a black and silver body with da40 xs, and the dial knob is on the left side. It looks more like dslr. Is that a ltd edition of k-5?
