New Pentaxes


This is the baby brother of this and they're both great and I wants them, I do.

They're both 6MP Digital SLRs with a Pentax K-Mount. The new one is supposed to be a cut down version, but I find it much more attractive. Maybe it's the much more affordable pricetag, the USB 2.0, SD cards, better display and more powerful flash with a faster sync speed. It doesn't have the Hyper program of the Z1-p or the *Ist-D, but that's not an insurmountable problem.

The *ist-D has a HK$12,000 pricetag in the reputable shops in Mong Kok, which equates to a HK$10,500 or so actual purchase price when equipped with a demon bargainer. I'm guessing that the *ist-DS will be going for about HK$5,000 to HK$6,000, which is an great price for a Digital SLR.
