Pentax MX1 Expert Compact Digital Camera

This looks like a good compact by Pentax, anyone else had experience with this model please?

At the moment, I have a Cannon compact so I am tempted to switch to this one. What does everyone else think? I am going to see if Microsystems do this model.

Well, I had decided that I didnīt need another camera... but the I did see the MX-1 on sale on Amazon.co.uk. After my normally several hours of checking reviews I made the "buy" gesture :-)
10 minutes after I found it on amazon.fr - a little lower price (213 EURO), and including : small tripod, 8 Gb SD and a leather case. So I cancelled the first order :-)

Well, I donīt know yet :-) I ordered it yesterday. But according to amazon.fr, the sale is handled by amazon, so I donīt expect to be any problems, but I will let you know in a few days, because it should be shipped with normal post, and I live in Denmark, so I donīt expect it before the end of the week. This is also my first order on the French Amazon, normally I use the German or UK site - depending on the price

The MX-1 is very nice little camera with great IQ.
I have one and based on the prices they go for nowadays, I strongly recommend it!

How would you "describe" it - something between the K-01 and the Q ? (I can see that you have both :-) )

Actually I have all 3, K-01, Q and MX-1.
MX-1 will be somewhere between Q and K-01.

Or, you can think of the MX-1 as a Q7 (when it comes to image quality) but with fixed lenses.
Personally I love it. Is always with me in my bag.
