In September, 2003, Pentax U.S.A., Inc., is scheduled to start shipping its first single-reflex digital camera with the aim of taking a 20-percent share in the world's single-reflex digital camera market in 3 years.

The 6.1 megapixel Pentax ist D weighs approximately 550 g, excluding a battery, reportedly the lightest among similar digital cameras, and is compatible with 110 Pentax lenses for conventional cameras, the camera maker said. (Kyodo News)
