The K-New will come out after the first week of pumpkin-spice latte season, but before the first week of peppermint-cocoa season. That's "Fall" as I define it. I'm sure Ricoh/Pentax sees it my way.
I thought the official way to tell it was fall was when all the young ladies start dressing like Han Solo on Tatooine, and before they dress like Han Solo on Hoth?

Yes.... in a way.... no K3II successor in September 2020.

I feel that K-New price will be out of my budget. Actually I think that DSLRs are highly expensive, is it only true for my country or you can also buy 10 Redmi Note 8 for a price of K-1?

10 smart phones for the price of a K-1 ? That's nothing. In my country you can buy 488 McRib sandwiches for the price of a K-1!

Hi

I think they would if they could but they can't so they won't.

Maybe *you* can't, but most people without an investment in one system or another will do exactly that. Someone looking specifically at a high end APSC DSLR will be asking:
  • Which one has faster AF?
  • Which one has the best burst performance?
  • Which has the best IQ?
  • How do they compare on price?

And heaven forbid they take "what kind of new 3rd party lenses are available" into account.

The only way to justify paying more for the Pentax is if it outperforms the current benchmarks. I have a hard time seeing that happen, since Pentax has yet to challenge Canon/Nikon on AF and burst performance in the APSC arena.
I don't ask this. I don't shoot Formula One, don't really need any of the faster AF or burst performance. Of course, I realise others do. But many comparisons are too focused on including everything: for me, it's very specific what I'd be looking for.
IQ, of course, but that includes character. Price, certainly. Improved OVF, that's what I've been waiting for.
I will probably hold out for the K-1 III if the K-3 III lives up to its specific promises.

I found this on facebook, I don't know if this was already a rumor:
Pentax K-3 II Successor Camera to be Announced on September 2020 - Daily Camera News
There's an event announcement for "Introduction of the K-3 III":

Felt the same. Got myself a second hand K1.
Less expensive and that is a VERY good excuse

Thanks, but that's not about CP+ (and not a private blog either), it's an old article by the writer of CAPA magazine about the invitation-only K-3III event held last December.

The same event was covered by many media outlets, and some of those articles/videos were discussed here too.

I don't know if it was mentioned, but there are some sentences on the shutter: rated for 300.000 exposures.

Another information and some unconfirmed rumor about the K-3 III.
