The award winning Pentax K-3 camera which is the flagship model of the K-mount digital SLR camera series is one of the best crop-sensor DSLRs available on sale currently. It packs features normally to be found on cameras costing quite a bit more; especially its excellent high ISO image quality and robust weather sealing. Ricoh has announced a limited edition version of K-3 DSLR named the ‘Prestige’ model and unlike some of the recent special editions we have seen, the Pentax Prestige K-3 neither comes with silly accessories and markings nor an inflated price-tag. Instead, the limited edition camera comes with a stylish, high grade, gunmetal gray body complete with a detachable BG-5 battery grip designed exclusively for the K-3.
The official description on the company’s website reads ‘the special edition Prestige K-3 commemorates the many awards bestowed upon the model.’ In addition to the matching battery grip and the camera body, the Prestige edition also includes two batteries and an ‘exclusive’ camera strap. Only 2000 units will be sold with each carrying a price-tag of $1,400. So in case you like it, better hurry.
