Pentax has issued a statement in response to a report that its recently announced K7 digital SLR will replace the existing K20D.

Pentax insists that its K7 digital SLR will not replace its existing K20D camera, despite a Japanese press report to the contrary.

The 29 May issue of Tokyo-based photographic trade publication Pen News Weekly reports that the K7 will replace the current K20D DSLR.

But a spokeswoman for Pentax's UK office this morning insisted this is not the case, telling us: 'The K7 is not replacing the K20D.'

Last month Pentax UK said that the two cameras would run alongside each other.

Pentax unveiled the 14.6-million-pixel model on 20 May - hoping that it will take on industry big guns such as Canon and Nikon. It features Live View and 'HD' video options.
