Until then, you may dwell on the K-01 rumors on the forum.
Amidst all the rumors about the mirrorless Pentax K-01, we have some current news to report: Sigma has recently announced a $75 instant rebate on their 17-50mm F2.8 lens, bringing its final price down to $594.
We reviewed this lens prior to the rebate and already then found it to be the overall best fast walkaround zoom currently available for Pentax. Read our comparative review of the DA* 16-50mm, Tamron 17-50mm, and Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 for more details!
A few days ago, a photo of the upcoming Pentax "K-01" mirrorless K-mount camera was leaked. It is also believed that the camera will be unveild in just 3 days, on February 2nd, in the UK. We are looking forward to bringing you more details as they become available!
We'd like to remind everyone that next Saturday, February 4th, 2012 is World Pentax Day.
During this event, we'd like to invite you to go out and shoot, as a large part of the community will do the same. Then, you'll be able to share photos from your part of the world in a collective gallery, and create a snapshot of the world through the "eyes" of Pentax cameras.
So, mark your calendars and go out and shoot next Saturday! Note: all World Pentax Day photos must be taken on the 4th in your time zone. Photos from any other day can't go in the gallery!
