The history of PENTAX single-lens-reflex (SLR) cameras begins in 1952, with the introduction of the Asahiflex I. In the early days of the SLR camera era, most camera bodies were finished in silver, using metallic exterior materials.
As popularity grew for SLR cameras, the black body became the choice of many users. However, the glitter and beauty of the silver body still draws the attention of enthusiastic photographers.
Because of our dedication to and affection for cameras and photography, PENTAX continues the heritage and tradition of the initial vision of the SLR camera, and has developed high-grade Limited-series lenses featuring a machined aluminum barrel, a finely textured finish and a well-conceived design. PENTAX has also introduced a number of silver-finished SLR camera bodies, as the perfect partners for the Limited-series lenses.
Proudly called the PENTAX Silver Series, these silver-finished PENTAX products stand out clearly as the best partners for many photographers.
PENTAX believes that the true excitement of photography lies in the act of enjoying a whole photo-shooting process to maximize your artistic expression.
When you take the time to carefully select your photographic equipment, it becomes something special — just like your own personal partner. You feel more devoted to it over time, find the pleasure of going out with it, and have many fascinating photographic experiences using your gear.
For PENTAX, one of the most important elements in manufacturing photographic products is to provide our users with a choice of high-performance cameras, all of which are designed to optimize the comfort of grip hold, the excitement of looking into the viewfinder, and the pleasant feel of the shutter release.
PENTAX is launching three HD PENTAX-D FA★ Silver Edition lenses as the perfect partners for silver-finished PENTAX SLR camera bodies. With the addition of the PENTAX K-1 Mark II Silver Edition — the latest 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera — the PENTAX Silver Series now offers a broader product lineup to satisfy diversified user demands.
