OK, I'm bored already with the K-S1. We know pretty much everything now.

What's next Ricoh?

Ricoh:

"What's next?" ..next? What do you mean what is next? That is it.

Whatever it is, it's the ugliest/dumbest doomed product I've ever seen, and Pentax is dumb and bad for making a doomed product like it, and they should have made it just like the Canon/Nikon/Sony/Olympus/Fuji doomed product, but at half the price.

Did I get everything?

I think there was a time when the DA 35 f2.4 was offered as a kit in different colors, I just can't remember what model.... K-r I think? (and only in Japan)
You're right, I forgot about that!

Nikon 1 AF is not hype. It's the real deal. I'd likely trust it as much or more than the K-3 to get the shot.
It also has smaller sensor hence larger DOF and harder to miss focus. Given same sensor size, the MILC claim of fastest focus speed in the world is overhyped. It is definitely getting way better than before but not there yet.

It's amazing the difference between circa K-01 and circa A7.

I predict White, Tweed Gray, Moon Silver and Midnight Black to be the top sellers, in that order :P

Maybe It's not actual in mainstream fashion anymore but I would like to see some camouflage textures: desert, jungle, urban camo ...

I wonder how many of these will be available outside Japan, though. I don't know why Pentax is so afraid of showing all those colours in the European and North American market.

You misspelled "doomed". The correct spelling is "doooooooooomed!!!!!!!"

Having use the Nikon V1 and a series of Pentax DSLRs (from K20d to K-3), for fast, consistent AF, I'd take the V1 with 18.5mm F1.8 (50mm EQ) over any of the Pentax bodies with a lens at F5.6 for the stuff that I shoot (moving motorcycles).

I once stuck the V1 on the back of one motorcycle, set it up for interval shooting and let it choose focus as a second motorcycle followed closely behind. The V1 was shockingly good at tracking the second motorcycle and nailing focus with the background pleasantly blurry.

So based on my experience, the V1 is definitely there. YMMV.

What I would like is something like this with a kick ass FF sensor at a very reasonable cost - something like $999. I would then gladly tolerate those goofy LEDs.
