Default The Hottest Pentax yet - the K3 !!

Pentax / Ricoh have just announced a new 24 mp DSLR with some very impressive specs. Those folks who have been lusting after a Full Frame Pentax will have to wait a bit longer.B&H are taking orders. The body alone is just under $1,300.

More info here:

PENTAX - K-3

Sorry to dampen the mood, but the K3 does NOT have a 35mm sensor. It's APS-C, as it says on their website.

Otherwise, it will be a great camera and has some very nice novel features, like the optional AA filter (which is just a shaking sensor, but nonetheless could come in handy).

You took the words right out of my mouth Berliner.

Yep - they seem to be working back down towards 0 Dirk. I wonder if their eventual FF DSLR will be called K1? That may not be a good idea since they already have a failed model called K01.
