Pentax K20D Body Now $995 MSRP

I guess you may have already heard that as of today Pentax has officially dropped the K20D body to a new sub-$1000 suggested retail price ($995), which should translate into very good street prices for the holiday season.

In the coming weeks, I'll be profiling the K20D and some of its more subtle features that appeal to me, like having ISO sensitivity displayed in the viewfinder and on the side LCD screen when you are in Program or Manual mode. It's a lovely camera and hopefully it can be seen as an even better catch for photographers at the new price point. Especially if you're planning to pair it with a hot lens, like the DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 (Pop Photos Lens Test, March 2008), which costs about $699 (yes, it's worth it).

Sweet! Now if only I had enough money, or someone to buy my K10D for more than it's worth...

Now, how much would you like to bet this means a K30D is in the works for next spring? I'm sure I'm not the only one to jump to this conclusion. Not that I could afford a K30, anyway...
