We shared the rumor last week that Pentax would update its K-S line with a new model, and today that rumor was proven to be true. This time, the company appears to have ditched the LED lights in favor of a more traditional look and feel; a good move if you ask me.
Pentax K-S2 Specs
- 20.1 MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
- PRIME M II Image Processing Engine
- 3.0″ 921k-Dot Vari-Angle TFT LCD Monitor
- SAFOX X 11-Point AF Sensor; 9 Cross-Type
- Sensor-Shift Shake Reduction
- Full HD 1080p Video at up to 30 fps
- Native ISO 51,200; Weather Resistant
- 5.5 fps Shooting; Selfie Button
- AA Filter Simulator; 4K Interval Movie
- Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity with NFC
Overall, this looks like a nice addition to the lineup from Pentax. I am certainly a much bigger fan of this styling than the LED ridden styling of the original K-S1. It is not badly priced either, at $696, putting it in the same conversation as Canon’s newly announced T6i and T6s entry level cameras.
If you are interested, you can get your Pentaz K-S2 pre-ordered now over on B&H, availability is expected by the end of the month!
