Pentax was founded

Pentax (company) was founded in November 1919: Pentax - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
But brand name was created in 50s

My favourite anniversary camera was this one:



AP 50th Aniv.


Too bad you couldn't buy one.

And how confusing are all these "anniversary" dates?

it would be nice if they redid that for the K-7 body. I would love it if they just brought back the old letter styling, like they featured on this beauty.

You can imagine that they will have a special edition Pentax k-7

At some point I think we will see a special edition K-7.
Hopefully a real titanium/bare metal body. MMMMMMMMMMMM

Well some special editions have been available oustide japan but no most.
The Grand Prix K10D was available outside for example, as is the white K-m.
