Yeah that scene with chewbacca at the end came as a surprise. But I'm glad that Lucas originally decided to have the same actors playing old the characters, since that will give the trilogy a better sense of continuity IMO.
Let's make a deal Adam, you tell me the specs on the new K3ii and I'll tell you the plot of new Star Wars movie (and what happens to Han Solo)

Instead of laughing, could you expose your thoughts about new DC motorised 16-50 and 50-135 f2,8 for APSC coming this years? Am I dreaming?

I predicted the new APSC was coming before the FF. Simply they need to test some feature that will be in FF and give a taste of what is coming

Here the essential feature that will be needed in the future FF and will be tested in the next APSC Flagship.

A) Tethering with Lightroom will be my 1st new feature.
B) Higher speed for flash
C) Wifi
The rest will be improvement for the actual K3( Bettter AF,better tracking, higher resolution back screen,)
Some feature could be nice but not essential is better video

New features. No Ricoh logo on the back.
Agreed...it needs to be moved to the front as they appear to be saving Pentax. :-)

Obviously the new camera has a user replaceable/customisable viewfinder, aka Pentax LX-esque.
This looks to me like you're fishing for a response from Kenspo

As if, why would anyone want a response from Kenspo? It's not like he has been a highly credible source or anything.




But in all honesty, interchangeable viewfinders are something I don't believe Pentax could pull off, even though it'd be a very compelling and useful feature

It should be noted that the timing couldn't be better for a K3 II release with the recent uninspiring upgrades from cannon and nikon to their APS-C flagships. A K3 II is likely to be the best in its class for a while to come unless nikon finally caves in and makes a d400
At another photo discussion board, a guy has just used DXO data to demonstrate that the Nikon D7200 is the most wonderful APS-C camera, so I guess everyone else should just give up.

Well, that settles it .... I am moving on to Nikon !!
Of course, DXO data are the only sure source of true information; the sacred book of photography.

Production of the new tech (AF/Processor) would be very well underway for the FF, so a release like this leveraging existing product lines, expanding them into the new direction, all whilst bringing in some much needed return for the eofy. It will also let them tweak said new tech for the FF release that they really want to impact with. Essentially giving them the data to make a gen 1.5 product.

I'm not sure what whizbang sensor tech they could include, but it should be an extremely well rounded camera.
