Pentax K-30 verdict

11. Pentax K-3 full-frame | Full-frame for the masses

There’s nothing to base this on except rumour and wishful thinking, but a full-frame K-3 could transform Pentax’s fortunes. It already has a legacy of full-frame lenses from its film days (though most probably in need of modernisation).

The specs? A 24-megapixel sensor, 5fps continuous shooting, a chunky, compact, no-nonsense metal alloy body with integral anti-shake and a price that undercuts the Nikon D600 (currently the cheapest full-frame DSLR) by £200. That’s just our guess, mind…

Pentax DSLRs are packed with clever features, like automatic distortion and chromatic aberration correction, highlight/shadow dynamic range compensation, and genuinely useful filter effects.

They’re better than people give them credit for, and if Pentax did move up into full-frame DSLRs then that could be just what the brand needs to bring it back into the mainstream.
