    Can’t wait for the K-r!

    Hopefully it fixes all the little quirks of the K-x such as the AA’s [I personally don’t like AA’s], focus points in the viewfinder, the so called mirror slap blur issue and so on…

    The K-r could be a winner if street price isn’t that much more than the K-x.

  • yawn…. the color idea is super lame. There were some terrible K-x color schemes.

  • I disagree with the Into-level DSLR and serious amateur labels. I think they should be labelled ‘for people with lots of money’ and ‘for people who dont have enough money’ instead.’

    • Global

      Neither is a lot of money for a DSLR. Good on Pentax for being a strong alternative to Nikon and Canon. Not sure how to place Sony exactly.

  • MK

    they love holding out on the most important issue… will K-R be weather resistant? they are charging much more than K-X. not asking for much but i will be satisfied if they release an underwater rated DSLR.

    • jeorcal

      I’ll prefer to kiss something else than Canon or Nikon but, unfortunately, there is nothing upcoming

  • Those images were created by a PentaxForum member – I think I covered them few months ago. There is a good chance however, that Pentax will show a new EVIL camera at Photokina, maybe under glass – they made multiple statements about that:

    I want a rainbow colored Pentax.
