A camera this ugly has just gotta take great pictures!

Good point!
Hope it's true because that's about the only way I'd own one

PS. my wife thinks Fuji has the nicest design this year.

Hopefully you're right, but I've found, that rule sure doesn't work for the photographer himself.

How could Pentax have engineered and patented a silent gearing mechanism or lens motor in 5 months?
They already have a ring motor patent actually, I saw it several years ago while searching for SR patents. But it was unfortunately a rather expensive design so I doubt we will see it in a kit lens.
