There will be a K-3 and K-3s to decide between with regards to moire.
I agree. 5fps is quite good for FF, but K-5 precedent for APS-C has been set at 7fps.

Do we have any idea when the K-3 might be announced other than "probably this month"? - assuming of course its actually real etc

What I would like from a K-3 is to have a way to get a RAW 12MP file from the 24 MP sensor and (at 12MP) to have a 10 fps burst (I would accept it even if just in manual focus mode) with at least the same buffer of K-5.

This magazine is the most recent K-3 rumour:
Japanese magazine Nippon Camera predictions for 2013 | Photo Rumors

Just ignore the full-frame prattling of the Photo Rumors guy. He still has Adam's April Fool K-3 posted on his site, and now he's projecting it forward. The magazine OTOH is supposedly a credible source and did predict the D7100, though not the new Nikon APS-C MILC.

Sorry I meant independent of the magazine. Something like a rumoured press release schedule or something

It seems to me K-3 will have new 24 MP APS-C Sony sensor (the same in NEX-7N - announcement - early April)

I'm going to Cornwall at the end of May. Sadly doubt it'll be released by then.

That was the rumour, but I'm hoping the delayed announcement is due to a last-minute sensor change to the Sony 20mp, or an upgraded 24mp. The NEX7 sensor is old news.

Well you have right before. I just hope they don't go down the 24mp route. It is not so good for hi-iso.
