Pentax’s flagship DSLR the K20D just got a price drop and is now available for $999.95.
The K20D is now equipped with a newly designed CMOS sensor with 14.6 effective megapixels. Other notable upgrades include a 2.7-inch LCD with adjustable brightness and Live View. The LCD is wide-view, which means you can view images approximately 160 degrees both vertically and horizontally to take full advantage of Live View. The dust reduction system now features a Dust Alert function that knows exactly where a particle of dust is so you know what to clean. The body is now fully weather-resistant and dust-proof. The enlarged CMOS sensor is now super sensitive and can reach up to 6400 in expanded ISO mode. The K20D is now equipped with the Pentax-original PRIME (Pentax Real IMage Engine), which ensures you get true-to-life images. The PRIME’s memory is taken care of via DDR2 so everything is pretty quick.

The W60 also saw a price drop and is now available for $300. I’m in the midst of reviewing this particular model and can tell you that it’s worth every penny. Look for the review soon.
