Digital medium format Pentax 645D released for pre-order in limited edition Japan kit

To commemorate the Pentax 645D winning the GP Japan 2011 Camera of the year award a kit has been announced for pre-order. It includes a 645D in a limited edition lacquer finish, in a deep red tone, as well as gold plated panels and a synthetic leather strap.

The backlight is also white, instead of green, and the whole kit comes in a paulownia wood box with a Camera GP Japan 2011 Camera of The Year logo on the lid. Pricing has yet to be announced, but like most limited edition models is expected to be in excess of the current £9,000 cost. 

The camera will be available from Pentax’s preferred retailers for pre-order between July 20th and September 20th. For more details head to the Pentax 645D website.
