Unnamed Ricoh Pentax Video Officially Announces New flagship APS-C SLR
Ricoh Pentax released a 40-minute video on the external network, introducing a number of new products under development, including the flagship SLR of APS-C format that has been revealed before Camera, and 3 new lenses. And this series of products is prepared for CP+ exhibition in 2020. Among them, the APS-C format flagship SLR camera has not been named, and it is claimed to be the best APS-C model in the history of the Pentax brand. Like the Pentax K-7, it will have a compact shape, a durable body and Powerful functionality, while adopting all available new technologies from Pentax.
Ricoh Pentax released ’S official new product introduction video
Although did not reveal too much about other parameters, it emphasized the special design of the viewfinder in the video. The viewfinder uses a special glass material with a ratio of 1.05 times The magnification ratio provides clear, distortion-free images, which is equivalent to the 0.7x magnification viewfinder field of view of the full-frame Pentax K1. The video also briefly mentioned stronger focusing performance and battery and handle gripping. Despite the impact of the new crown virus epidemic, Ricoh Pentax still hopes to bring this product in 2020, and more detailed camera parameters will be reported at that time.
Except for this, Pentax also brought three lenses with different specifications, including the previously revealed full-frame lens HDPentax-DFA*85mmf/1.4EDSDMAW lens, and two lenses that have never been announced to the public: the Pentax full-frame DFA21mm lens whose aperture size has not yet been announced , And HDPentaxDA*16-50mmf/2.8EDPLMAW zoom lens with APS-C format. Among them, the “PLM” focusing system in the lens logo uses a brand-new optical structure and focusing module to bring faster and quieter pulse focusing.
I have to say that Pentax seems to have fallen behind the pace of the times. In today’s “overwhelming” mirrorless era, it still focuses on the development of APS-C level Products may be sentiments, or they may be new research and development ideas. It is difficult to predict how attractive the four new products announced this time will be. In general, the video released this time does not contain much detailed information, and we have to wait for more official announcements in the future! I also hope that Pentax will continue to continue the glory of the century-old camera brand in the future.
