Hot on the heels of the K200D, the new top-of-the-line K20D is Pentax’s 10th D-SLR, and it’s worthy of the honor. Featuring a new 14.6-megapixel CMOS sensor and live viewing on its 2.7-inch LCD monitor, the K20D builds on the features that made the K10D an excellent choice for outdoor photography: rugged, dustproof and weather-resistant construction; a built-in sensor-shift Shake Reduction system that works with all lenses; an effective dust-control system; a high-performance Pentax PRIME imaging engine; 3 fps shooting and more.
