This further encourages me to buy this for my wife (and myself obviously). I love seeing Pentax win awards. I hope they continue to impress and build momentum. Great job on the MX-1, Pentax, and thanks for posting this, Adam!

Funny that no reference is made to the previous Pentax awarded the Red Dot -- the controversial K-01, last year, if I'm not mistaken?

I thought these awards were given out during the summer? I see no mention of the MX-1 (or any 2013 product for that matter) on red dot's web site. It's a nice award, but I think they give it out to way too many products each year. 2 Nikons also won alongside the K-01, for instance.

Somebody might want to tell John Carlson that patina (oxidization, i.e., corrosion) is not the same as brassing (paint abrasion to reveal brass beneath).

Also:
(from red dot online)
Entries: 4,662
“red dot” awards granted: 1,065


So: nearly one in four of the entries won the "prestigious design honours".

Yes, but the highest honors, "Best of the Best", were given to 58 entries divided among three categories.
