Pentax K-1 Limited Silver

Ricoh is now offering potential buyers of its full-frame Pentax K-1 camera a second option when it comes to body color. The Pentax K-1 Limited Silver is otherwise the identical to the black-bodied K-1.

Pentax says this camera will visually match up with silver FA Limited lenses.

This is the first and only silver-bodied full-frame SLR. Silver bodies began to fall out of favor in the 1980s, and there haven't been any silver full-frame SLRs in the digital era.

Nikon's newest full-frame digital SLR brings increased resolution and 4K video.

The Nikon D850 uses a full-frame 45.7-MP DX CMOS back-side illuminated sensor, its first DSLR to incorporate BSI technology. This model replaces the D810 in Nikon's lineup.

The sensor has an ISO range of 64-25,600, which can be extended lower to 32 and upward to 102,400. Nikon has removed the low-pass filter in front of the sensor, which should provide for sharper photos.
