Pentax Offer A New SLR

Thu May 25, 2006 2:47 am

"PENTAX has just unveiled the K100D series of digital SLR bodies. With features that speak for themselves, the PENTAX K100D and PENTAX K110D each offer advanced features packed into compact, lightweight bodies that will be available soon in a ready-to-shoot lens kit for less than $700. Even more, the remarkable Shake Reduction capability featured on the K100D delivers improved results in low-light, telephoto and macro shooting situations."

Interesting. Neither are shown on the UK website.

I'm a little bit confused. Both are nearly the same price as the *Ist DL.

Looks good. I was wondering how long it would be before a new model was released.

From what I can see between the two models is that one has Shake Reduction (SR) system and the other doesn't.

Would like to see some example shots from it.
