By PF Staff in Product Updates on Jul 26, 2016
The Pentax K-70 started shipping in Japan on July 22nd, and as of the evening of July 25th, plenty of stock has arrived at B&H Photo. Other major US Pentax retailers currently do not show availability.
We've also spotted the K-70 at SRS Microsystems in the UK.
The K-70 is a highly-capable mid-range DSLR which builds on last year's Pentax K-S2 by introducing continuous video autofocus and hybrid live view autofocus for the first time ever in a Pentax DSLR. It's also the first sub-flagship body to offer 14-bit RAW and a 24-megapixel sensor.

In the US, the K-70 is priced at $649 for the body only or $899 with the 18-135mm lens. The camera is available in both black and silver. Beware of grey market sellers trying to sell the camera for more on eBay and Amazon.
Now that the K-70 is available and the K-50 and K-S1 have been discontinued, the price of the K-S2 has dropped to around $499 to fill the entry-level position in the K-mount lineup.
