With Canon and Nikon rumored to announce 3 to 4 new DSLR cameras this year, it will be interesting to see what Pentax and Sony will come up with. Based on latest information, we should see the Pentax K-60 in February at CP+ trade.
Pentax K-60 Specifications:
- 24MP CMOS Sensor
- PRIME III Processor
- No low-pass filter (the new trend?)
- 11 AF Points
- 29k-pixel RGB Metering
- 100% Pentaprism Optical Viewfinder
- Light-weight and weather-sealed body
- Body available in multiple colors
- Built-in NFC and WiFi
- Priced at $699.00
Take this with a grain of salt, as it hasn’t even been a full year since Pentax announced the K-50 and K-500 cameras. Then again, both Canon and Nikon announced their entry level models a bit earlier than most of us expected, with nothing “revolutionary” (the D3300 for example).
Original “leak” can be found at Xitek (Chinese).
