The latest rumor that Pentax plans to announce two new SLR models, the K20D and K200D, on January 24, a week before the Photo Marketing Association trade show that begins.
The K20D will have a 14-megapixel sensor of the smaller APS-C size, a 14-bit analog-to-digital converter for better tonal gradations than typical 12-bit converters, a live-view LCD, the same weather resistance as the K10D, and better sensor-shift shake reduction.
The lower-end K200D will have a 10-megapixel sensor and a bigger memory buffer for longer stretches of continuous shooting.
There are also three new lenses, all appearing on a Pentax roadmap: a 60-250mm f/4 to be announced in December and a 200mm f/2.8 and a 300mm f/4 to be announced with the cameras in January.
