Pentax Launches K-5 Silver Edition DSLR For $1600

Last year, you may have thought that Micro Four Thirds and mirrorless mini-cams were bound to steal the thunder of major DSLRs. Not so. This year, the D800, D800E and D4 were unveiled by Nikon, and Canon has launched the 5D Mark III. In order to get in on the action, Pentax has just launched the K-5 Silver Special Edition. Available only as a limited edition of 1,500 sets worldwide, the package consists of the PENTAX K-5 digital SLR camera body matched with the new, ultra thin smc PENTAX-DA 40mm F2.8 XS lens. The exclusive package combines the PENTAX K-5 - the flagship model of the PENTAX K series of digital SLR cameras - with the smc PENTAX-DA 40mm F2.8 XS lens - the world's thinnest unifocal lens.

It'll run you $1600 (including the lens), and there's really no way to put a price on the limited nature, right?
