Advantages: Great size, focus speed and image quality.
Disadvantages: Some design flaws.
I've spent the past week having a play about with this and I am happy to give it a great review.
First off, the image quality is excellent, the focus peaking means manually focusing is much easier which is sometimes difficult to find in other models.
Very well built body, size means I could happily go for a wander and not have to lug anything too clunky about. The only thing I would say is the rubber cover for the charger is extremely difficult to manage and ended up being very frustrating. However, all in all it's a very nice design. In addition to this, the battery life is brilliant- making trips much simpler.
A wonderful camera, works (ie provides focus confirmation and anti-shake) with every Pentax lens ever made, plus plenty of others (I myself have used it with a microscope adapter). As well as this it's surprisingly good in low light too. In terms of video it produces nice video with acceptable sound, plus the ability to add an external microphone.
One thing I would say is make sure you download the latest firmware (v1.01) from the Pentax site before using the camera, it makes a huge difference in improving the focus speed.
Summary: Brilliant value for the level of features.
