Pentax has announced a limited-edition version of the K10D digital SLR to commemorate its victory in the Camera Grand Prix 2007 Award in Japan last month.

Only 150 of the kits will be available in the UK from a worldwide production run of 5,000.

Each carries its own serial number.

The K10D is Pentax?s flagship 10.2-million-pixel digital SLR.

The Pentax K10D Grand Prix model boasts gold coloured lettering (including the mode dial and K10D logo), plus a new dark brown rubber coating on the body and battery grip.

The Camera Grand Prix 2007 lettering and logo are also displayed on the lower part of the LCD monitor on the back of the camera?s back panel.

The camera?s leather strap features the award?s logo and each kit includes a battery grip and the latest firmware (version 1.30).

A UK price has yet to be confirmed.
