    Very Generic looking. A little short of ugly, it’s great to have an APS-C CMOS Sensor but very confining with only one focal length. When you add the $225.00 Optical Finder, you have a Point & Shoot with a large sensor and a disappointing story to tell. Maybe, if you could make calls from it, you won’t be called stupid when you’re friends hear about it. You can always say that you bought it because your cameras keep getting stolen. You can be sure they’ll pass this one by because they’d have a hard time getting $100.00 for the set. That’s over $1000.00 with the 50’s style finder but hey, thieves have a reputation too! You know this may have been what the Nikon Coolpix A looked like, Before they put it on the lathe.

    Oh good, another over-priced over complicated point and shoot camera. Better take great
    pictures with a slow lens ’cause otherwise it’s non-competitive with other lesser priced offerings. Oh. Hum. Pentax should do better than this.
