Pentax Efina and K5ii/s update?

Hi All,

Was just browsing the Pentax Japan pages and notice they have two new items in their news feed though the links are not working yet?

One link is for a K5II/s firmware update and the other for a new product called the Pentax Efina...

Hopefully their links will work soon...

Cheers,
Gordon

Thank you for this piece of information. This is the original Pentax Efina:




Nothing to rave about, I am afraid.

lol wow and people complain about the K-01's look.. That Efina would be interesting, if it had a high quality fixed zoom lens and a massive sensor. I mean, APS-C or bigger.

I suppose we'll all know what "a stylish, accessory-like design" is when we see one, but until then I have no idea what that actually means at all.

I cant really see anything inspiring in the original Efina design that would warrant bringing it back, so maybe it's just the name they will use.

Btw, does Efina mean anything? Or is it a made up word?

what would have been funny is if it was an APS-C format compact with a fast fixed prime lens... then you would have all the MX-1 haters go "wtf, how come the Efina gets our specs!"
