Pentax Q2 - Rumour with picture

I would pay mid range SLR money for a higher spec Q with decent EVF and the build quality of the original, but I may be in the small minority. I noticed in the press release for the Q-S1 it said, and I paraphrase, the Q has two markets, women interested in style aged 25 - 35 and men aged 40 - 50, two me that suggests two different product lines. I know that's a bit of a leap but the Q-S1 seems to be aimed at the hip instagram crowd not the photo bloke over 40, so maybe there is another Q in the works with a different spec.

I've never used the auto 110, but it was well built with good lenses from what I have read. funny how 110 film is very similar to micro 43 today. But yes, a quality auto 110d with a viewfinder and fixed prime would be fantastic. I'd order one the day it was announced.

If pentax want to attract a hip crowd to the q, why didn't they get a 'name' designer like they did with the K-01. on a personal note, i have the orriginal q and all the primes and use a few 8mm cine lenses, I love the camera and format and size but I need an EVF for composing, its natural for me to have a camera to my eye and also its imposible to fine focus maunal lenses in bright light on the LCD screen. I think if pentax made the Q serious compact system, maybe even with a mini LX/auto 110 form factor with small high quality wide and portrait primes they would expand their market. I have a K5 and K5iis but a tiny system, camera and 3 lenses that fits in jean pocket would be a major advantage over micro 43 etc as a back up or second camera set up.

to me the camera has more of a retro/hipster vibe than a sporty vibe, but thats just my take on it. whatever that new 'knob' is its certainly a conversation starter and so is the enigmatic 'S1' name. I still think it could be a quirky IR cover that by necessity doubles as a not very erganomic grip, what ever it is its there and will be part of how the camera is heald and its a very odd adition to the camera to my eyes. or if they've ditched the IR on the front maybe it is a cover for a new accessory port as some people have sugested. also I think the camera looks plastic and lower price point rather than metal and premium price point.

the top down shot gives a better view of the new 'knob' - More Pentax Q-S1 photos show up ahead of its launch | Camyx (maybe the S1 name stands for a square sensor! I'm joking btw)

I agree, and the middle is a kind of 'flat' black on the gold and black bodies and doesnt look like machined metal and its in the same place as the ir sensor on the old models, so i reckon it could be a minimal grip with the ir sensor incorporated. maybe it pushes flush or pops out to suit different peoples preferences. really wish there was an EVF even if it was a hot shoe mounted type.
