Pentax Releases Silver K-5 And Limited Edition Lenses

Despite having only ever used one for a few minutes, I’m a fan of the K-5. It’s a solid-feeling camera, and it’s got a lens selection going back decades. And with Pentax, if you don’t like the look of the camera, wait a few months and they’ll put out one with a new paint job. This month, it’s silver!

The camera itself is the same, and the price is the same at $1700 for body-only. It really is just a paint job.

The lenses are the same, too. Now you can get the…

  • 21mm F/3.2 AL
  • 40mm F/2.8
  • 70mm F/2.4

in silver.

Does your next project involve werewolves? This might be a good investment, even if it’s just paint. The werewolves don’t want to take the risk, really.
