Sony A300 and A350 Available for Pre-Order

Looks like Amazon just listed the A300 and A350. I just pre-ordered the A350 w/ 18-70mm lens, so I’ll let you know what I think when it arrives. Currently, Amazon is showing availability dates in May for the A300 and April for the A350.

Pentax K20D Specs Leaked

I’m not sure you call it a leak if they’ve been in the wild for as long as they have, but the ever-diligent crew over in the DPReview.com forums have purportedly lifted the K20D specs from a Russian Pentax distributor (I’m not making this up).  Anyway, here’s a quick rundown of the specs:

  • 14.6 CMOS megapixel sensor
  • 3 types of dust removal
  • ISO – Auto, fixed 100-1600 (standard values), manual 100-3200 with possibility of ISO6400.
  • 2.7″ display consisting of 230k pixels
  • LiveView
  • 12 bit RAW
  • 3fps – 9 RAW, unlimited JPEG
  • PC-contact for studio flashes
  • Same battery and vertical grip as K10D

If this stuff is really floating around on a distributor’s website (it was taken down when I checked), then I imagine we’ll hear something official in the next couple of days.  Stay tuned.

Watch the Pentax K20D page for the latest updates.
