Further details of Pentax K100D revealed on Japanese website
According to Japanese photography journal dc.watch.impress.co.jp, the new Pentax Shake Reduction system, which will be employed in the new K100D and K110D cameras, will use magnets to drive the movement of the CCD, instead of a mechanical system as used by Konica Minolta.

By using magnets no guide rails are needed in the design, which should lead to quicker response, and therefore better compensation of movement.

Screen shots of Pentax's new Photo Laboratory 3, which incorporates RAW processing and organisation system from the popular Silkypix software, are also included in the article.

Users of Pentax manual lenses will also be pleased to see the menu system for inputting manual lens data in operation.
