Pentax adds chrome K5 limited edition to range
It's not just Leica that has seen the benefits of offerring limited edition versions, now Pentax is doing the same. However it appears the pricing is far more reasonable; the black K-5 body has a RRP of £1199.99 while the new chrome (silver) limited edition version is selling for just £100 more. Unfortunately there are just 50 units allocated to the UK.
Pentax has announced that its multi-award winning K-5 is now available in a beautiful new silver colour.
This limited version (only 50 units are available in the UK) has had a complete face lift and features a new finish, thumb wheels, buttons and packaging. In addition, the back LCD and top screen of the Silver K-5 have been reinforced to provide additional durability. The camera also benefits from a redesigned handle, making it more comfortable to use.
The Silver K-5 is also equipped with the latest firmware update, ensuring it offers the latest in technology.
To complete the new K-5 silver version, three already existing pancake lenses are now also available in silver:
• smc DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited Silver
• smc DA 21mm f/3.2 AL Limited Silver
• smc DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited Silver
The RRP of:
- The Silver K-5 : £1299.99
- The smc DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited Silver : £529.99
- The smc DA 21mm f/3.2 AL Limited Silver : £609.99
- The smc DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited Silver : £609.99
