Camera with a silver lining

Pentax K-5 Limited Edition Silver

Is silver the new black? Nah, but Pentax does a fine job arguing the case for the heritage finish with their Pentax K-5 Limited Edition Silver ($1,699). The special edition model touts a 16.4 megapixel CMOS sensor, 7 fps capture, 80-12800 ISO (expandable to 51200), 1080p HD video capture at 25fps with built-in mic or external mic jack, shock-resistant/scratchproof LCD glass and an exclusive design with a uniquely shaped grip. The K-5 also lands with good company in tow. Three Pentax DA Limited Edition Silver lenses (21mm f3.2, 40mm f2.8, 70mm f2.4) that tout precision machine-shaped lens barrels with matching silver finishes will arrive with the stout chunk o’silver. More images after the jump.
