Finally Pentax leaks its new K-m DSRL and lenses. The camera will come with 10MP CCD APS-C, sensor-shift stabilization, 3.5 fps, ISO up to 3200, and 2.7-inch LCD. With pricing begin from 500 euro, this affordable DSLR will be released in November. And oddly enough, this camera still using AA batteries instead of Li-ion.
The entry-level lightweight DSLR will be the K-m. No specs, or megapixelation was given. Two new “L” series (having fun with the other L-series?) kit lenses will be lightweight and with a plastic mount to go with the new lightweight DSLR. Pentax does not have a compact camera line above the mid-range to worry about, so they can price a DSLR as low as they want. This post has the prices – 500 euro for the 1-lens kit and 600 euro for the 2-lens kit, with a November release.
