rumored Pentax mirrorless camera - something between K1000 and K-01

It's not like you've formulated perfectly grammatically correct sentences either. A single typo and apparently it's the end of the world. Sheesh. You should try writing multiple 80 page engineering documents, there's bound to be errors - that's why they get reviewed by multiple people before going into approval and publication.

Any engineer would know they make the absolute perfect products, components, etc. They design it to system specs and requirements. An engineer knows how things work, how components fail, and how to fix them. If a product fails on the marketplace - well, that's the fault of sales/marketing and business development. Something for upper management to probe into and do a lessons learnt session where one or two things get pulled forward into future projects. Us engineers, however, we're fine :D

Fact: A few months after the K-01 was discontinued, they re-released it in Japan in a blue and white motif due to demand and its visual appeal.

In other-words the camera, while it was largely considered unattractive ( which is bad in a global market space when you're in the business to sell stuff), was still liked by people regardless. Why is this so hard to get across? To claim something as ugly as fact is just plain wrong. Which is what your original quoted statement said - quite clearly. Popular thought/opinion does not make a truth/fact. Whilst it is true to say that popular opinion considered the K-01 ugly, it is not true to say that everyone considered it ugly.

UNSW graduate with a Bachelors of Engineering, First Class Honours... quite proud of it really.

Regardless, we are arguing over a single statement you made


That's definitely something to think about.

Nope, cause my father wasn't born here and couldn't give two-hoots about the monarchy or republican movement.

But that's a different topic altogether.

It doesn't matter if you want to play around with semantics or go into psychology/biology instead of philosophy, your opinion or unattractiveness to an inanimate object can differ from others and so calling the design disgusting and labelling it a fact is not the right approach.

Beauty (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

TL;DR attractiveness/aesthetics is subjective and objective depending on philosophical standpoint.

I like the camera, I don't think it's ugly.

In the same way that my father considers the actress Meghan Markle to be ugly, I find her quite attractive.

Just got this lens this week and wanted to give it a go - there was a Christmas Market going on at my local community centre.

At the central plaza one of the shows was a group of flamenco dancers. The lead lady was quite enthusiastic with a great smile!

Yay! A lot of people were suggesting that it didn't come out first time around for the K-3 cause it wouldn't be capable; glad they were wrong!

I have the original non-WR version. But that's not the point, the fact they don't include the K-3 makes me wary of any new lenses they introduce that require a firmware update. Especially if they introduce more lenses with the new aperture mechanism.

The lack of a mention of the K-3 in the press release is a bit disappointing. Sounds like they're not really going to support it anymore, and I'm not giving up my Silver Edition K-3 just to get a K-3II for lens support. *grumbles*

You're assuming the Australian Dollar is at parity to the green back... which it hasn't been for quite a long time now.

Price at B&H Photo is $1,796.95 USD... at current exchange rates according to the almighty Google, that's $2,2497.69 AUD.

Add on 10% GST and its $2,747.45.

$2899 RRP is pretty darn good I'd say.

Looks pretty much like the K-3 Silver Edition... except it looks like it's lacking a corresponding silver grip.

Their FB page says they're "focusing on all things Theta" at CES ... which is funny given Nikon and now Kodak with new 360 cameras.
