Pentax Supersizes the K100D

Pentax K100D Super

Pentax has tweaked its successful entry-level K100D DSLR, added features found in more advanced models and called it the “K100D Super.”

The K100D Super, announced today, builds on the popular Pentax K100D digital SLR camera that first shipped in July 2006. The newest member of the Pentax K Series of digital SLRs now features the Shake Reduction (SR) system, Dust Removal (DR) system, and full compatibility with Pentax SDM lenses.

All other features of the older K100D remain the same: 6.1 megapixel APS-C size CCD, 11-point autofocus mechanism and 2.5-inch LCD monitor.

The K100D Super retails for $600 with an 18-55mm kit lens that you’ll want to discard right away. Alternatively, you have a choice of buying the body only at $520.

Also today, Pentax released the AF-200FG flash to go with the K100D Super. The $150 strobe of course is compatible with the other Pentax SLRs.
