Right now, it's still wearing a Nikon badge. Perhaps we'll see it in the coming months.

Judging by Sony using a 20MP sensor for their own offerings I have a feeling that Pentax will do the same.

Sony's NEX-7 is 24.3 MP.

I think bossa is possibly referring to this Sony camera: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/non-pentax-cameras-canon-nikon-etc/235401...oks-great.html

I think it is a good question.. but I also don't think we should be too focused on the release date for the next camera body from Ricoh/Pentax.. it will be released when it is released.. between now and a few years from now. Enjoy and make use of what you have while you have it because you might not have it tomorrow.


There are a few other (software) projects I have watched that have become delayed and then more delayed and then more delayed.. to the point where many of the people following and waiting for their release have turned to both aggressive and infantile actions. In the end they look foolish and the software still isn't being released any sooner.. could have been out doing something else with the amount of time wasted.

Pentax/Ricoh, you are just too shady. I think I have said that to a man or two in my life... good times, but just too shady.

I understand, but my point was, if Sony has a 24.3MP APSC sensor, why in the world would Pentax/Ricoh use the 20MP sensor that Sony uses in their cheaper cameras?

Because they are smart.

There is none.
We should see a 20mp K-3 announcement in a few weeks though.
Unfortunately, the expectations are so high following Pentax's recent laps in flagship product announcements that I fear the camera may be doomed to failure before it even gets out of the starting gate.

Things that may hinder the upcoming K-3's success:
  • Insignificant(none outstanding) sensor performance(typical run of the mill with other APS-C's)
  • Lack of innovation and/or much asked for features(see: flash sync speed, MF support etc etc)
  • Price: It seems that Pentax users are very frugal when it comes to equipment costs.

Based on what I've been reading, this is my prediction.

On the positive side of things.

When the K-5 came out it's overall image score beat every other APS-C camera on the market according to dxomark.com. The Nikon 7100 beat it when it came out two years later.

Pentax has consistently made small incremental changes to each new flagship model.

If that 20 MP sensor performs just as well as the 24 MP sensor, I would be just as happy with it. The current 16 MP camera has almost enough resolution for me.

Name your source? I think you are just making this up.

I think they will announce it on 9/5. I am not naming my source, it is internet folklore.
But I believe the internet folklore
