Pentax says that the new colourful cameras will be available as a limited edition kits with a 18-55mm kit lens, priced at a recommended retail price of £600.

Christopher Christoforou, Which? digital cameras expert, says: ‘A Digital SLR is often thought of as a ‘serious’ photography tool – and that black is the only colour of choice.
