Just handled the GX-20 and K20D Price

Just had a play today with the GX-20 at Focus in Birmingham. I have to admit that I am pretty impressed with it. I mainly looked at the Live View feature, and even zooming in, the focusing in live view was pretty good. Whilst I appreciate the restrictions of the LCD resolution, in reality it was not a problem. The model was a pre production, it still felt impressive. Unfortunately Pentax were not there themselve for me to try the K20D version, but trying the GX-20 was close enough.

Now, the good bit, as you are aware, Pentax put the price on the K20D as 899 body only, one store at the show put this price for the K20D with the Kit lens, and even better, another store had the Price of the K20D at 749 (body only). Now this is more like it. Lets hope that Pentax discussions with Pentax Europe about the price are coming to fruition.

I am still going to hold back until the full tests have been made by the press, and then I will make the decision later in the year. In the meantime, early signs are looking good, from the brief handling I had today.
