I have decided to leak all the information out................... It will have those features that are in it's specifications. kenspo is snickering at my audacity.

The one feature that scares me most is that they may have found a way to automatically decrement out savings accounts and send us the camera without us knowing it. If so I hope that it also has a feature to keeps out spouses from finding out about it. Maybe a virtual image projector that makes it look like a K5 to everyone but the owner.

I really hope they improve AF! We need a smaller central spot point for more precision and better metering and a wider coverage of the frame. I cross my fingers! That's all I really need. Tiltable screen and pixel shift would be a plus.
Kenspo I will wait for your report to see if it is a good improvement for concert shooting ;-)

Kenspo, just a simple question. Will the viewfinder be "better" than that of the current K-3? I don't need no details, just tell me if the viewfinder will be better

What do you find the most logical?

I am with you - AF improvement is key for me. I bought the K3 for improved AF and it is clearly better than the K5 but still lacking versus competition. Cropped, full, double full frame - without state of the art AF I will hold off purchase. Introduce a camera with top performing AF and I'll probably buy it, in my case for wildlife photography including birds in flight.

I've not been going in K-3 from K-5 II because K-3's sensor is somehow worse, it's not that good in low light situations (compared to the K-5 II) and so on. One thing I hope is to see better sensor in upcoming K-3 II. That would be enough for me tho I'm looking forward to see the FF too.

Remember the early leaks of the K-3? Those were low res and people thought they were shopped too. Kenspo and asahi man are talking like these are real. So...

Look at the K-3 II logo. clear tint differences with the body tint around. When true then Ricoh shopped badly themselves.

Given the speculation regarding GPS and WiFi, NFC, It would be interesting to see this update effectively kill off two high-margin accessories (FLUcard, O-GPS1) for bodies going forward. The FLUcard, given its quirks, would be no surprise. The O-GPS1 will be quite painful to see go if it means we lose its killer feature (astrotracer).

As to the speculation of greatly increased processing power, it is worth noting that the main thing holding Ricoh back from implementing 4k video has been the limitations of the PRIME III processor, so if there really is a processor upgrade, that is something we might see int his body as well.
