You guys seriously think this GR is being offered in place of the K3?

...That would suck...

I have heard about a couple of (DSLR) announcements soon but may be not on the very same day.

Remember X-5 announcement (August 22nd, 2012) then Q10 / K-5 II(s) / DA 18-270 + DA 560 + DFA645 90 announcement (September 10th, 2012).

If DLSRs were to be announced tomorrow, I presume there would have been some leaks already (specifications, pictures and so on).

I totally agree with this. It seems that before every dslr release there have been some credible leaks. I think we are a couple of months away from new dslrs.

Weeks rather than months. But nothing high-endish I am afraid.

Definitely not; but that counter was never about a K-3.

They need low-endish stuff first. An inexpensive good looking and very small and light camera (picking up where the K-r lost the good vibes from the K-x), preferably with a new silent-motor compact kit lens. But two low-endish cameras? Maybe it's already time for updating the K-30? I'd vote for something even closer to the K-5, but with smaller and more lightweight body.

But if they make it a "K-31" by keeping the K-30s overall design and just adding a mic jack and better video handling (especially focus peaking during video), they will have countered the most important negative remarks in reviews.

HDMI-out seems to be pretty standard now, too. Whenever the K-30 successor appears, it should have that.

  1. Pentax used to replace their cheapest DSLR on a 12-month basis: K-m a.k.a. K2000 (Sept. 2008) / K-x (Sept. 2009) / K-r (Sept. 2010)
  2. K-30 was announced on May 21st, 2012.
Make your own conclusions.

Shouldn't you have said "So we first get an APS-H"?
