Good: Size, size, and the size
Bad: LCD can get washed out in sunlight
Comment: I bought this camera after I lost my last digital camera and, while the Pentax doesn't offer shutter- or apeture- priority modes, I realised that these were features I rarely used in the past. The size of the camera is brilliant (about the size of a deck of cards) and the time lag between shots is very good (1 second or so). The only negative I have experienced is the fact that there is no optical viewfinder, so you have to rely on the LCD screen to frame up all your shots, and in extreme sunlight, it can be very difficult to see the screen.
