    Anyone know if this will be a worthy successor to the 550? I'm still shooting analogue with an eos 500 and 28-200 Tamron, but want to take the plunge soon. Is it worth the wait?

    Thanks for a quick response; I've used this site before, but not for the 555. If only it had an autofocus assist lamp and continuous autofocus features. Talking of which, how does it compare with the Sony DSC-V1?

    Many thanks for that John. Best, i.e. most detailed review so far. Based on this, Pentax will have a surefire winner on their hands if they can clear up the shutter lag problem. Unfortunately no news on time to save TIFF files (apparently locks up 550 for 20 secs whilst saving these). Watch out for the Kyocera S5R offspring (an inevitabiltiy), and its fast image processing too. If only Pentax could adopt that. I'm dreaming again......
