Notice of Discontinuation of Production of
Standard, Non Weather Resistant (non-WR) version of Pentax K+ Multi Mount, PK+MM.
Thank you for the continuing interest and support of our products.
We regret to inform you that we will discontinue the production of the standard non-Weather Resistant (non-WR) version of the Pentax K+ Multi Mount (PK+MM) with effect from 11th March 2016 with the sale of the last remaining inventory.
Since its concept prototype unveiling on Pentax Forum in February 2013 and its subsequent announcement to produce it professionally as a commercial product, the PK+MM has enabled a small number of Pentax enthusiasts’ in adapting lenses from other camera mounts to a non-WR Pentax DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) or the mirrorless K-01.
However, with the announcement of the non-WR Pentax K-500 in June 2013 and its mount design having the same WR mount ring as other WR DSLRs, we anticipated that non-WR mount rings will longer be produced or used by Ricoh Pentax in future DSLR design. Under such circumstances, as we continue to maintain declining sales for this product, the time has come that no new batches of the standard non-WR version PK+MM will be further produced.
After sales support will continue as usual due to its relevance to other current products.
Production of the PK+MM (WR version) will still continue without disruption.
Once again, we wish to express our appreciation to all customers who have shown interest or supported the PK+MM product line.
