Pentax reveals three new cameras

K-5 II, K-5 IIs DSLRs and Q10 compact system camera announced alongside loads of accessories

Pentax has unveiled a trio of interchangeable lens cameras: the Q10 compact system camera and the K-5 II and K-5 IIs DSLRs.

The Q10 is a tiny thing, similar in size to the Pentax Q, and sports a 12.4-megapixel sensor, ISO range of 100 to 6400, HDR shooting, improved autofocus performance and full HD video capture. There’s also the now-customary bunch of Instagram-style filters aboard. The Q10 will go on sale in early October for £380 with a 5-15mm lens and £540 with both a 5-15mm and 15-45mm lens.

The K-5 II is the company’s new flagship DSLR. It features “the top AF performance in its class” thanks to a new high-sensitivity autofocus sensor, a 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, magnesium alloy body, weather-sealing and in-body image stabilisation. The K-5 IIs is much the same, but doesn’t have an anti-aliasing filter, which allows photo enthusiasts to create shots with sharper resolution and clarity.

The K-5 II will cost £800 body only, while the K-5 IIs is £950. They’ll be on sale early October.

Also coming is a K-mount adapter for the Q series, allowing you to use larger Pentax lenses on the Q and Q10.
