Lumix GX1 vs Pentax ?

Hi all,

I currently have a K20 which early next year I want to trade up to a K5 IIs, however I also want a small, pocket sized camera.

I've recently been fortunate enough to play with a Lumix GX1 for a month or so and loved it, so it begs the question, is there a similar Pentax?

Thanks all...

The only one that would come close would be the Pentax Q.
Surely a lot of fun, but the sensor will be smaller

+1. Its a lot of fun and with an inexpensive (or expensive, your choice) adapter it will handle all your K lenses (and there are other adapters that will take nearly any mount in the SLR/dSLR and cinema camera world). I had a GF2 and it and its lenses were way bulkier and harder to manage than the Q too.
