Pentax K-r Specifications

PentaxForums received the following information today regarding the upcoming K-r body, which is intended to be the successor of the popular K-x:

We have received the following information regarding the K-r:

...there is a cool, unique feature about the K-r that will help really differentiate it from the K-x; it will natively accept a lithium-ion battery but with an insert will also accommodate AA batteries. No grip will be required and a query regarding available grip was met with complete silence...

..another feature you can add to your list for the K-r is viewfinder illuminated focusing point.

New additional features of the K-r will therefore be:

  • Native rechargeable battery support as well as optional insert for AA batteries
  • Focusing points in viewfinder

They are in addition to the following rumored features:

  • 12 Mexapixel Sensor
  • 6 frames per second
  • Up to 120 color combinations: 10 body colors, and 12 grip colors
  • To be officially announcd in September
  • To be released in October, 2010
  • $875 suggested retail price
  • Intro-level DSLR

We expect to hear more about this body on Thursday, September 9th, when Pentax is expected to give a press-release announcement. Discuss this news on the forum.
