Pentax K-1 II

Pentax is one of the beloved names of photography, first capturing a generation with the Spotmatic and then introducing 35mm film via the K1000.

In the digital space, the Pentax name hasn’t been at the top of the leaderboard. Even with the Pentax brand now being part of Ricoh.

But that doesn’t mean Pentax doesn’t have a viable digital camera. In 2016, Pentax released its first full-frame DSLR, the K-1. This year, the camera has undergone an update.

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.

An April 12, 2017, article in the Nikkei newspaper said the company has suffered losses in the consumer camera business and would review strategies for its Ricoh and Pentax brands, which could include exiting the consumer photography segment.

The Ricoh GR cameras have earned a reputation for being one of the best fixed-lens digital point and shoots on the market.

For the record, the film GR cameras had that same reputation.

With an APS-C CMOS sensor and an f/2.8 28mm full-frame equivalent lens mated to a very thin body shell, the digital GR and GRII found an immediate audience of photographers who wanted a high quality image in the P&S form factor.
