Pentax — whose parent company just released a special edition GR II — has finally entered the realm of full-frame DSLRs, introducing the brand new K-1. Featuring the likes of rugged weather-resistant and dustproof magnesium construction and boasting a 36.4-megapixel full-frame sensor, the K-1 includes specs like ISO sensitivity of up to 204,800, a maximum shooting speed of 4.4 fps, 5-axis image stabilization, shutter speeds of up to 1/8000 of a second and 1080p/30fps video recording. The design even sports a unique twisting 3.2-inch LCD screen for shooting at any angle while “operation assist lights” offer some added help in low-light conditions. Perhaps best of all, an MSRP of $1,799 USD means it costs less than most of its competitors while Pentax has used the launch to introduce two brand new full-frame lenses: the HD Pentax-D FA 15-30mm f.2.8 ultra-wide angle zoom and the HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 compact zoom.

Both of the lenses and the K-1 body will soon be available at Pentax stockists worldwide.
