[Photokina 2010] Pentax unveils the new K-5
Pentax unveils their new expert DSLR. Good news for the Pentax fans, the K5 is built on the foundations of the well-built K-7, which means it’s weather-resistant. But the big change is of course the new 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor. It offers a 100 to 12800 ISO range, 7fps burst mode, much-improved 11-point autofocus, and an overhauled HDR mode. The video mode is now in Full HD. The bad news is that it offers only SDHC memory card compatibility…
It will be available next month, for 1199 euros with 18.55mm WR lens.
At the same time, Pentax announced the new weather-resistant lens: the smc DA 18-135mm WR.
