It looks to me like this is more like a sister model to the existing K-3, rather than a replacement. It's actually pretty neat that you can choose to have either the GPS/Astrotracer or the flash built in, buy the other as an add-on if you want. Also you can get it with the rather good DA16-85

If we're lucky, some of these features could be added to the K-3 in a firmware update.

D1N0 - It's improved "Anti-moire" as transliterated into Japanese kana and then back into roman script by Google.

GPS with Astrotracer is exciting news. If the FF has a similar feature built in. I wil lbe VERY happy.

It also appears they are claiming 4.5 EV worth of Anti-shake, which is +1 better than what's claimed for the original K-3...

Frankly I don't find it that surprisingsurprising. The K5II, after all, was only an incremental upgrade to the original K-5, the only significant differences being the updated AF and the lack of AA filter on the IIs.

If anything, this one goes a bit further (GPS, superresolution) than the K-5 to K-5II leap, and I wasn't expecting some of the big advancements that others in this thread were.

Specs don't seem particularly better than K3, but I guess question is how it operates in practice and if there is sensor improvement.

Guys, specs are well and dandy, we're months away from its release, we won't be seeing the results of its sensor ( DR and Low ISO performance) or real world buffering tests. The specs are just the peanuts before the entree.

The improved video capabilty with the same prime III points to a new sensor. When on par or a little better than the one in the D7200 that would also be a nice improvement

The real question is know the sensor. I personally like the choice to add the GPS unit over the flash. I wait for the FF anyway.

If we look at the competitor, they use the same "tick-tock" strategy :
- tick : new body, new sensor
- tock : improvement of the existing - incremental upgrade
- tick : ....

Anyway, i'm quite happy that a new body may be out soon, i'll have even better deal on used K5II or K3

You'd better wait to see the price, until you can say that this will make the prices of secondhand drop. After what I've seen so far, I will not be surprised to be around 1300, or more.

About specs, looks more like speculations to me. But I can be wrong.
