Pentax to develop new APS-C and Full Frame DSLRs
In a DSLR world dominated by Nikon, Canon, and Sony the little guys such as Pentax must sometimes changes things up in order to gain any market share. In a recent interview with PCPop a Chinese website, Pentax’s Managing Director, Tomoyoshi Shibata revealed that the company is currently working on a new professional level APS-C DSLR that will be released alongside a new full frame DSLR that will be “different from any other full frame DSLR on the market”.
Details of this new full frame DSLR have not been shared as of yet, in fact nothing has even been officially announced, but this seems to be a bold move on Pentax’s part. I mean if they are truly aiming to make a full frame DSLR that is different from other full frame models from the other manufacturers this can only be a good thing for the industry. We can only speculate as to what will make this new full frame DSLR different from others, but given Pentax’s history let’s all hope he is not just referring to a rainbow of color options. Haha
What do you guys think? Could Pentax really have a game changing DSLR up their sleeve, or is it all talk?
