Since it is basically the same body maybe the K-3 II can be retrofitted with a flash (and lose GPS).

That "pixel shift" feature with high fidelity RGB reproduction will make a lot of landscape photogs happy.

The improved AF tracking IMO looks like a combination of the old K3, with the addition of some sort of GPS - sensor shift (panning) feature to make it more accurate. I'm sure the new d-FA telephoto lenses with their fast motors will perform very well.

I don't know about that, but what I want to know is if the new flash-less body can trigger remote flash wirelessly with no flash in the shoe ... I hope so.

GPS only gives you the position. For orientation you'd need a compass for example.

It must be save for work, otherwise it couldn't be a PRO camera
