Pentax new naming scheme

I like Ricoh/Pentax's new naming scheme!

WG-M1
MX-1
XG-1
Q-S1
K-S1

Possible future names:

K-50 >> K-X1
K-3 >> K-L1
FF >> K-F1

You got the new names wrong. These are the new names - note where the dash is placed:

WG-M1
Q-S1
K-S1

We learned from Ricoh Imaging at Photokina that the "S" designates a special edition, that they call the "innovation" line. A more bold design targeted at a younger and sofisticated audience, rather than at us old Pentaxians. We old guys and gals are targeted with the K-3, Q7, and 645Z, which focus less on design and more on handling and/or features.

I don't know what the "M" designates.

Probably "movie" or "motion" since the WG-M1 is meant to be a GoPro competitor.

Though admittedly their bikes don't make good cameras.
