The MX-1 is based on the same lens unit and sensor as the Olympus XZ-2 but comes loaded with Pentax's own image processing system and with a 60s style retro casing. So how can you be sure to stand out from the likes of the Olympus ZX-2, Panasonic LX7, Sony RX100, Samsung EX2F, Fuji X10 and Canon G15 when you're a latecomer to the market?  Find out in our review.
