The new Pentax products have been officially announced in Japan

According to DigitalCamera.jp (computer-translated link), the three new Pentax products announced yesterday in many countries and on the net, have now been officially announced in Japan. So what new information do we get from Japan?



  • Pentax 18-250 DA lens: The press release from Pentax Japan reveals a rather healthy monthly production output of 6,000 per month. It is expected to go on sale in Japan in late October. Since most of the current Pentax DSLRs have sensor-shift image stabilization, users of the K100D, K100D Super, K10D and the Samsung GX10 will be thrilled.
  • Pentax Optio A40: The press release from Pentax Japan reveals that this camera will be released in early November for around 40,000 yen at an initial monthly production output of 40,000 units per month (I couldn't mix up those two numbers even if I tried!).
  • Pentax Optio V10: The press release from Pentax Japan reveals an early November release, a price of 30,000 yen and an initial monthly production output of 50,000 units.
