Pentax Cameras and Equipment

All Pentax digital SLR bodies are compatible with older Pentax film lenses (FA, F and A mounts) as well as newer lenses (DA and DA* mounts). The Pentax K10D is the cheapest weather-sealed digital SLR body on the market. Pentax offers a different approach to image stabilization than market leaders Canon and Nikon. The Pentax DSLR bodies electronically shake their sensors to compensate for camera shake, rather than adding image stabilization to specific lenses. The Pentax system is not as effective as in-lens image stabilization and it isn't very effective for long telephoto lenses, but it does work with all lenses, including old designs from the film years.
