Pentax K-01

16.3 megapixel, Compact System Camera, Non-Zoom

Pentax goes its own way with a mirrorless camera that accepts standard K-mount lenses. That means access to a huge back catalog of quality optics without an adapter. Unfortunately, it also necessitates a body that's barely any smaller than a standard SLR.

Released March 2012

$520

Pentax K-5

16.3 megapixel, Pro SLR, 3.06x Zoom

With a brand-new 16-megapixel sensor, ~6.5 frames per second burst rate, and an unusually wide expanded ISO sensitivity range of 80 to 51,200 equivalents, the Pentax K-5 takes over the flagship position in Pentax's APS-C digital SLR lineup, replacing 2009's K-7 model.

Released October 2010

image of the Pentax K-30 digital camera

Pentax K-30

16.3 megapixel, SLR, 7.50x Zoom

Pentax takes features commonly associated with enthusiast-level DSLRs, and places them in a mid-range model that the rest of us can afford. With a great pentaprism viewfinder, a weather-sealed body, and twin control dials, the Pentax K-30 offers a lot of bang for the buck. Throw in much the same imaging configuration as the mirrorless K-01, and you're looking at a mighty interesting camera.

Released July 2012

Water, cold, dust, crush, and shockproof, the Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS will also record where you are when you shoot your pictures. But for all its toughness we were disappointed in the images except for those who only print 8x10 or smaller most of the time.

Pentax produces a small-sensor digital camera with interchangeable lenses, a first for the digital camera industry. If your interchangeable-lens camera sits at home on the shelf because it's too big, the Pentax Q be the camera you're looking for, but is it too extreme for the rest of us?
