Pentax adds four new colors to its already bright K-x DSLR line

Pentax K-x gets new colors

Good old Pentax has been pushing that K-x entry-level DSLR camera for a while now. When the thing started to get long in the tooth a replacement didn't come. Pentax decided to appeal to customers with bright colors rather than new features. Apparently, that tactic is working since four new colors have been added to the K-x line.


One of the colors will appeal to women with a pink hue usually only found in your medicine cabinet. Pentax also offers new beige, chocolate brown, and olive green versions of the camera. All of the new color cams are the same price as the other models already on the market at $649. For that much green you get a whole camera kit.

The lens included is a DA L 18-55mm unit good for about three times optical zoom. If you want more zoom and can live with plain black, you can get a kit for a mere $50 more at $699.95 that includes the basic 18-55mm lens and a 50-200mm lens as well. That better zoom lens will get you closer to the action. I'm not a fan of most of the colors Pentax offers, but the white camera still reminds me of a Stormtrooper.
