It’s identical to the original K2000 and probably aims to make the entry level DSLR even more appealing to those considering the step up from a compact. It’s also a good reminder to us that there is life beyond Canon and Nikon, and in fact that I have some absolutely beautiful Pentax optics at home screaming out for a renaissance.
It’s got 10.2-megapixel CCD sensor, a 2.7-inch screen and will come with a lens if you splash out on the kit which most people probably will.
Hopefully, it won’t be much more expensive than the £400 normal colour version but that’s provided you can get to a shop in Japan or the US before they sell out. Sorry. I did say they were hard to reach.
