Pentax K-r announcement clippings

The K-r incorporates a new generation CMOS image sensor with 12 megapixels and the high-performance PRIME (PENTAX Real Image Engine) II imaging engine for  accurate and high-speed data processing equal to that of upper-level PENTAX  digital SLR models for  high-quality images.
The camera also offers a wide sensitivity range between ISO 200 and ISO 12800 that may be expanded from ISO 100 to ISO 25600 via a custom function.

The camera features the PENTAX-developed Shake Reduction mechanism, which effectively compensates the adverse effect of camera shake by up to approximately four shutter steps. This innovative mechanism extends its benefits to almost all PENTAX interchangeable lenses — even those designed for film-format cameras.  The K-r produces sharp, blur-free images even under demanding conditions prone to camera shake, such as when using a telephoto lens, shooting in the dark without flash illumination, and shooting sunsets.
