Editor’s Note: in a previous version of this article our title stated that the camera has 67 AF points. It has 27 AF points and 67 weather seals.
The rumors have been around the internet, and it seems like the cat is out of the bag: the Pentax KP is a new DSLR designed to be super compact yet packs a lot of the features the Pentax K-3 series boasts. For example, Pentax is saying that it’s Weatherproof, has 5-axis image stabilization (called Shake Reduction II), and a brand new 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor at the heart. But most notably, Pentax is talking about the Pentax KP’s super compact body. Indeed, it looks like an old school DSLR with some retro looks–and that’s something I seriously digg.
But the biggest thing is how small it is: The specs say approximately 131.5mm/5.1 inches (W) x 101.0mm/ 4 inches (H) x 76.0mm/3 inches (D) (excluding protrusions).
