PENTAX won three more prizes!..
Overall Camera of the Year 2016 & Best Full-Frame DSLR Camera of the Year 2016: PENTAX K-1
“After the long wait for a full-frame DSLR, Pentax has hit the ground running with the Pentax K-1. With a 36 megapixel full-frame sensor and a host of unique features including built-in GPS, Wi-Fi and 5-axis image stabilisation sensor, at an extremely competitive price, the Pentax K-1 offers the best bang-per-buck of any current Digital SLR.
The Pentax K-1 answers Pentax User’s demands for Pentax to release a full-frame Digital SLR, and rather than Pentax releasing a “me too” product, Pentax has released a full-frame camera that challenges the main manufacturers, both in price and features. There is another good reason why people want to buy a full-frame Pentax DSLR and that’s the fact that Pentax has a history of producing a number of excellent full-frame prime lenses.”
Best DSLR Entry Level Camera of the Year 2016: PENTAX K-S2
“The Pentax K-S2 is highly impressive and performs flawlessly. I immediately liked its predecessor, but the K-S2 manages to top that, fitting the hands like a glove and performing superbly in every respect. In many ways, I prefer this design to the more expensive K-3, although we have to recognise that there are still some advantages to the more expensive model. In its class, the enthusiast-orientated K-S2 is absolutely superb, and I would very happily use one for the photography I do.”
