The short answer: Don't trust the marketing hype. ;-)

We don't know how these models will perform yet. Yes, they're bragging about the "larger" 1/1.8" CCD. Sure, it's larger than some newer subcompacts, but it's the same size as the CCD in your camera (so, it's not larger than it), and it's got more megapixels than your model (which means smaller photosites for each pixel).

These new Pentax models have just been announced, and we just don't know how well these cameras will perform yet.
