Any one have info about this:

So key things that I noticed some people asked about...

The grip is new, the BG-5 and is specifically designed for the K-3. It uses the D-LI90 battery and can accept AA batteries with the grip.

Tethering is provided through FLU Card. Can change settings, use Live-View through connected devices and transfer images.

And, there's a lot of AF modes....
