The price should fall to $200 ish quite quickly. If you look at the WG-1 it fell to under $200 eventually.

Well, it comes in a bunch of cool colors, but I'll need to know who designed it before I can tell if it's a good camera.

I'm sure I can sell a few of these. I know my chances are close to none, but how can I get in contact with a distributor?

I asked a Pentax rep and they said the WG-2 designer was some unknown named "Optimus Prime".

but seriously this camera looks so sleek it might have come from Cybertron or designed by HAL or something =)) If the K-01 was designed like this...

which looks cool for a camera, or at least to me I will ask my trekker friends their opinion about this design.
