Ricoh has announced a new Pentax DSLR! The Pentax K-S2 is not the long rumored full frame but another in their line of excellent APS-C sized sensors and this one does NOT have the blinking lights in the grip we made fun of a few podcasts ago.

The Pentax K-S2 will be available in March for $799.95with smc Pentax-DA L 18-50mm F4-5.6 DC WR kit zoom.

Pentax is also release an updated kit lens the PENTAX DA 18-50mm f/4.0-5.6 DC WR RE Lens

Mouseover to see the 18-50 extended.


From the press release – The world’s smallest dustproof, weather-resistant digital SLR camera with a variable-angle LCD monitor, wireless LAN and NFC functions, available in multiple colours.

My thoughts – Pentax continues to make excellent cameras that offer very good value, the downside is the tiny ecosystem of accessories and gear that may make your experience frustrating.

 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance. Captured with the GH5 and 12-35 f/2.8 Lens #lumixloungegh3
 Rainy Day Reflections of Seattle's coolest public library - I almost said coolest building but the new Amazon spheres are crazy cool. I like living in the future - now if we could just ecotopia this place up all would be peachy!
 Upper Sunbeam Falls - Powered by melting snow(seen at the top of the frame) - Captured with GH5 and 12-35 f/2.8 lens 0.4 second exposure.
