Pentax drops K20D pricing

Pentax on Monday announced an immediate price drop for its K20 digital SLR camera, which sports a 14.6-megapixel sensor and a dust-proof, weather-resistant body. The new $200 discount is permanent, unlike an earlier price drop where Pentax lowered prices for the K20D and K2000 DSLR cameras and their bundles until by $100 until February 22nd. The body of the Pentax K20D is now priced at nearly $800, while the K20D with a DA 18-55mm II lens kit costs nearly $880. A kit with a 16-45mm lens kit carries a price tag of $1,200.

Apart from the price drops, Pentax is also extending the warranty on the flagship K20D by two years to buyers who pick one up by March 31st.

The K20D has a built-in shake reduction feature in its body that helps to eliminate blurry images no matter what kind of lens is fitted onto it. Shooters can preview the captured images on a 2.7-inch LCD and have a choice of six preset options. There is 16-segment metering and 11-point autofocus with nine cross sensors for capturing images.
