News in brief: Christmas cashback pressies from Pentax

More cunning than a cunning fox, Pentax has just announced some cashback offers to tempt you into buying its wares when you might, possibly, maybe, be thinking about presents for Chrisnukah. There’s £90 back on a K-5 – body-only or with a lens – or £100 back on a Q with a single or twin lens kit. I’m not sure that a £100 reduction is enough to win me over to the Q from the recent reviews, but if your heart is set on this itty-bitty 12 megapixel snapper, it can’t be bad at all.

The offer’s valid from 1 November to 31 December 2011. All the information that you need, including a downloadable claim form can be found here for the K-5 or here for the Q.
