Objects of Desire: Limited Edition White Pentax K2000 DSLR Kit
Feb 2, 2009
By Dan Havlik
As a camera, Pentax K2000 is for advanced amateurs—not pros—and features a the 10.2MP CCD imaging sensor; 2.7-inch, 230,000-dot, wide-view LCD screen; and in-camera Shake Reduction. Like the camera, the two white Pentax lenses—not to be confused with Canon white professional lenses—are rather rinky-dink. There's a white Pentax DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL lens and a white Pentax DA L 50-200mm f/4-5.6 AL lens.
So while the technology in this special edition DLSR kit from Pentax may not impress, its daring disco styling definitely scores a few points on the Objects-of-Desire meter.
