Two days ago, the Pentax K-3 full frame DLSR was rumored to be announced on tomorrow, March 27, 2013. But until now, there is still no news about this long awaited Pentax full frame camera.
Previous rumors shows that Pentax is going to announce several DSLRs and APS-C compate camera soon. Now new rumors from PR told us that the full frame Pentax DSLR – Pentax K-3 is to be announced on March 27th next week.
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.
