Pentax will bring two new interchangeable lens cameras this summer, only one will be mirrorless

Back in January I mentioned that Pentax is working on two new interchangeable lens cameras. One of them will be the Pentax NC-1 that should be announced in the summer of 2011 and it will be a true "mirrorless solution". The second camera is rumored to be a digital version of the Pentax Auto 110 camera. The Pentax 110 was the only SLR type camera for the 110 film format. The new 110 digital version is expected to be announced in August of 2011. I assume that the new Pentax 110 will be compatible with old Pentax Auto 110 lenses. In that case you can expect the price of used 100 Pentax lenses to go up.

At the CP+ show Pentax said that "if we decide to do something in this respect has to be different, and it is not easy in the current context, to do something that is different and good… We’re on it.” Very different indeed.

On a related news the new Pentax D FA 645 25mm f/4 AL (IF) SDM AW lens will start shipping on April 2d in Japan.
