Imho, not the case.
Prototypes have their own appellation and receives a commercial appellation when they are released.
Ok good point... Then maybe some names are skipped because it might somehow mean something very different somewhere in the world? A meaning nobody wants attached to their product? Remember the K-Z debacle a few years back?

I just think Pentax like to use these numbers.
Many film SLR has used 3, 5 and 7 in the product names.

But 8, 9, 6, and 4 has not been used much. The only camera I can remember using any of these number is MZ-6, which was a minor update of MZ-7.

Pentax will probably skip K-9 then. Who wants a dog of a camera?

There was no K-6, why would there be a K-4?

K-7 -> K-5 -> (K-3)

I think it's worth revising K2 name again.
It's so beautiful and strong.

Deja vu

Is it just me or have we had this conversation more than once in the past. It may be a glitch in the matrix.

New news discussions in the 'news and rumors' section rarely happen at the pentax forums. It is mostly deep debating of the internal affairs of the company or specifications of the next camera body that are never enough..

I still come here because, once in a blue moon, someone posts something factual. That is, actual news. It is rare but happens.. honest!

True.
K2 (also known as Chhogori/Qogir, Ketu/Kechu, and Mount Godwin-Austen) is the second-highest mountain on Earth, after Mount Everest. It is part of the Himalayas and much harder to climb than Everest.

I see Photo Rumors are predicting the announcement of the K-3 on 8 October. I don't know where they got that one from, but after past disappointments, I'm keeping a cool head about it. (make it so, make it so, make it so, make it......)

I am wondering ...

By the way, since somebody else spilled the beans on Chassimages, I can confirm that the K-3 should be announced on Tuesday, October 8th in Japan (Monday evening in North America).

The same day as the Nikon D610. They may want to reconsider...

I thought that too. Nikon should be smarter that that, and announce on some other day.

I find it a smart move from Ricoh. Steal away all the thunder from the new Nikon
