If the K3 gets Pixel Shift through a firmware upgrade I will be very surprised. We don't even know if it actually is even possible yet ? That's the main reason I went "all in" on the K3II and have Pre-Ordered.
Could it happen down the road at some point ? I think so , but my gut feeling is it wont be until a new model that will replace both comes out near the end of the K3II's reign.
Pentax knows a lot of people are gonna jump ship with their K3 and upgrade to the K3II.
I'd imagine that the SR upgrade and pixel shift technology are inextricably linked, in which case K-3 will not be capable of upgrading to do pixel shift.

I think so too.
Therefore Ricoh could pursue K-3 production along with K-3II just to keep "flash unconditionals" onboard...
