I realise that the K-r is very close in specs, but with the K-x credited more than any other product with the revival of Pentax, I think they should have kept it going for longer to maximise the new users it can draw in. Itīs by no means out of date.

I'm sure there will be new old stock for quite some time to come, and by the time it's gone the K-r will probably have come down to the K-x's current pricing.

Will there be a successor to the K-x soon? Or should I consider the K-R as the successor of the K-x?

I was going to write that the succession to K-r is clear.

On second thought, Pentax may look at keeping the K-r at a higher price than the K-X, placing a new (mirrorless?) body at the USD $450-$650 price point.

For now though, the K-r is the only Pentax option. Pricing should give us an indication of direction.

For anyone in Oz who's interested in snapping up a K-x before they go, there is at least one store here in Perth that has new K-x (not refurbs), with 18-55 and batteries/charger for $499! Not bad, eh?

I'm not sure how much the k-r costs there, but if isn't that much of a difference, the k-r would be the better alternative.
