Pentax K20D dSLR goes south of $800

Award-winning Pentax K20 digital SLR body and two K20D lens kit configurations have been reduced by $200.

With PMA 2009 coming next week, there's a chance Pentax may announce a new follow-up to last year's 14.6-megapixel CMOS flagship K20D. At the very least the company's getting a little preshow coverage thanks to a $200 price cut.

Starting immediately, the Pentax K20D body only is $799.95. Paired with the DA 18-55mm II lens it's $879.95 or with the DA 16-45mm lens it's $1199.95.

We liked the K20D overall in spite of some color accuracy issues. It was a good-bang-for-your-buck camera at its original price, so this price drop only improves the situation.
