Pentax is rumored to announce several new DSLRs and a new APS-C compact camera in this March or April.
At CP+ Show 2013 in Japan, PentaxForums.com interviewed Hiraku Kawauchi and Shigeru Wakashiro, who are from Pentax Ricoh Japan. They confirmed that the full frame Pentax camera is coming.
Pentax Ricoh has announced its latest flagship DSLRs – the K-5 II and K-5 IIs. The ‘s’ version, which costs $100 more, comes without an anti-aliasing filter, to offer higher resolution at the risk of more prominent moiré interference patterns. Both cameras feature 16MP sensors and the weather-sealed magnesium alloy build of the original K-5.
The Pentax Q10 Compact Digital Interchangeable Lens Camera offers versatility without the bulk and weight of a DSLR. It has a 12.4MP backlit 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor, which captures low-noise images even at high levels of sensitivity for 12-bit DNG RAW and JPEG file formats. This sensor and the AF algorithm have been upgraded in order to provide faster, more accurate autofocusing. The camera is compatible with the PENTAX Q-mount lens system, which encompasses prime, zoom, fisheye and other types of lenses.
The Pentax 90mm f/2.8 D FA 645 Macro ED AW SR Lens is a fast, medium-length lens (equivalent to 71mm in 35mm-format) for use with Pentax 645-mount medium format cameras. The f/2.8 maximum aperture provides greater control over depth of field and features rounded 9-blade diaphragm construction. This lens has the Pentax Quick-Shift Focus System for rapid switching between auto and manual focus modes, and integrates a Shake Reduction mechanism for countering the effects of camera shake or image blur.
The Pentax smc Pentax-DA 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 ED SDM Lens is an all-encompassing zoom lens, featuring a 15x zoom range from a wide 18mm to a long 270mm (equivalent to 27.5-414mm in 35mm format). Benefitting the long reach of this lens, two extra-low dispersion elements have been incorporated into the lens construction to help reduce chromatic aberration and improve overall image clarity. A minimum focus distance of 1.6′ across the entire zoom range also makes this lens an effective tool for macro and close-up work.
The Pentax 06 Telephoto Zoom 15-45mm f/2.8 Lens is a long-range telephoto zoom lens equivalent to 83-249mm in the 35mm format. It is compatible with Pentax Q-mount cameras and features a wide maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the entire zoom range. Within the lens construction, two Extra-low Dispersion glass elements and one super-low dispersion glass element are included for greater image sharpness and clarity. Additionally, a Super Protect (SP) coating is applied to the front lens surface for enhanced protection and greater ease when cleaning.
