It is interesting as confirmation of what we'd already heard.

It is lacking in appeal to users. I guess it's aimed at stock market investors.

The real interest will be if it all converges on K and Q mounts and Pentax ergonomics.

Let's hope that's it for ownership changes and mergers don't you all think?
