Hi folks,

Pentax have announced as "coming soon" the X70 superzoom. Full details are here and from that page some highlights are:

  • 24X wide-angle optical zoom
    The 24X optical zoom is equivalent to 26–624mm, making it ideal for close-up as well as distant shots. Whatever your need – landscapes, group shots, wildlife, sports, and more – this camera’s got you covered.
  • 12.0 megapixels
    An impressive 12.0 megapixel CCD captures large, detailed images, which can be printed as 11x14 -inch enlargements (and larger) in clear resolution with impressive image quality.
  • High Resolution 2.7 inch LCD screen
    The large, bright 2.7 inch LCD screen lets you easily compose, capture, and review your images and video with great clarity. You can also use the built-in electronic viewfinder to frame and shoot, so you know you’ll be able to get the shot in any lighting situation.
  • Triple Shake Reduction technology
    The X70 boasts three Shake Reduction technologies to reduce camera shake and blurring of the subject: Mechanical Shake Reduction via a CCD shift mechanism, Digital Shake Reduction via high ISO, and Movie Shake Reduction for blur-free video capture.
  • High-speed continuous shooting
    With high-speed continuous shooting at 11 FPS, the X70 makes sure you get the winning shot, even in with the fastest action.
  • Fast Face Detection
    With PENTAX's face detection technology, the camera quickly and automatically sees up to 32 faces in 0.03 seconds, so portraits and group shots are bright and focused, even in backlit situations.
  • Flexible movie capture
    HD movie capture vividly captures moving memories in widescreen 720p (15 FPS) as well as full speed 848x480, VGA, and QVGA resolutions.
  • Super Macro mode
    Close focusing, Super Macro mode brings out the details in even the smallest subjects as close as 1 cm from the lens.

624mm? i guess that means the sensor is going to be fairly small, otherwise it would be a hell of a piece of glass on the front.
