Pentax Announces 10MP SLR and 645 Digital
While not a complete surprise, Pentax has announced their yet-unnamed 10MP SLR. Specifications are currently unavailable, but the camera prototype was seen under glass. It is currently set for an Fall 2006 release. Also announced was a 21mm f3.2 DA AL wide-angle lens for digital Pentax SLRs only
Of course, the big wow factor is the prototype 645 Format camera first announced in early 2005. Equipped with an 18MP Kodak KAF18000CE sensor, the body will enjoy all the advantages of it's predecessor, the 645N. Pricing is yet to be determined.
