New entry-level APS-C model
By PF Staff in Pentax Rumors on Jun 6, 2016
Tentative specifications for the upcoming Pentax K-70 have been leaked over on Digicame Info. We present them below, translated from Japanese.
Based on the specifications, the Pentax K-70 appears to be a modernized version of the entry-level Pentax K-50, with the sensor for the Pentax K-3 and many newer features from the K-S2, such as the articulating LCD and built-in Wi-Fi. The K-70 will also have the customizable control panel that we saw on the Pentax K-1.
The K-70 may have a hybrid live view/video focusing system with PDAF points on the sensor. If it does, it will be first Pentax to offer this technology.
