MX-1 Review from SLR Lounge

Nice thorough review of the MX-1 at SLR Lounge. Don't think there is much new here, just nice to see the camera (and Pentax) getting some press.

Looks like a shoutout to heie in there, if not by name "Pentax dSLRs have the reputation of being among the most rugged and best weather-sealed cameras available. One soldier in Iraq washes the dust off his in the shower!"

"Also optional, but highly recommended, is the perplexing ability to set the camera to mew like a cat during the self-timer countdown and then bark like a dog when the photo is taken."

The heck? This is awesome XD

Thanks for posting this link. It does sound like this camera is just what I have been looking for in a carry around every day camera now that my work life has made carting a DSLR and bag of primes around less feasible on a day to day basis. I just picked one up today and the battery is just about charged. I've never actually owned a digital compact but I am looking forward to playing with it.
