Pentax Announces New Digital SLR Cameras

PENTAX Imaging Company has announced three additional digital SLR products that are currently under development and will be showcased under glass at the upcoming PMA 2006 held from February 26 to March 1 in Orlando, Florida.

PENTAX has confirmed that the company will unveil a yet-to-be-named PENTAX 10 megapixel digital SLR camera body, tentatively scheduled for a formal launch in Autumn 2006.

PENTAX has tentatively scheduled the lens launch for June 2006.
