Pentax To Launch Digital SLR with Interchangeable Lenses

*ist D to debut next month at PMA show By Dave Nagel
Pentax says it's planning to launch a new digital SLR camera called the *ist D. The new model, which will offer interchangeable lenses, will debut at the PMA show March 2 in Las Vegas.

The *ist D is a digital SLR targeted toward professionals and offering a 6.1 megapixel resolution, interchangeable lenses, a 1.8-inch LCD monitor and a pentaprism viewfinder. Pentax says it will be one of the smallest and lightest digital cameras in the SLR category.

No other details of the *ist D are known at this time. Pentax says the camera will debut "under glass" at the PMA show next month and that the camera will finally ship in July. For more information, visit
