Well maybe the new APS-C flagship comes in a few months as rumored..that would piss off alot who get the K3II..I really wonder if Ricoh would stoop so low??!!

Who started that rumor?
QuoteOriginally posted by Not a Number Quote
There was a thread earlier that the salesman at a camera store told the poster to wait on his purchase because a new flagship was on the way. Maybe the K3ii is what he meant though.

Just to fuel up rumors and gossip about a new flagship coming:

Yesterday, after some time thinking about taking the plunge for the K3, I went to the local Pentax dealer decided to drive home with my new K3... Since several days ago, this guy who is more of a friend than a salesperson (dealer owner), gave me a good price on the K3 + da18-135 kit. He even was gonna throw in the grip for a few coins more. (Worth mentioning that this is his LAST K3 in inventory!!!!)

So, I walked in, asked directly for a final price (or the chance to buy body only + grip) and out of nowhere, his answer was:

You should wait!

Wait????? Why? How long?

His answers: Because I know you want the latest.... not long, about two months (february)...

The rest of the conversation of course got a bit inquisitive from my side, but knowing he could not say more, I didn't push it. The fact is that something big is coming in the near future.
That rumour of a new flagship to come was launched in December 2014, "announcing" something for February this year.

Guess what was announced on April 7th, 2015?

Ricoh's new APS-C flagship camera under the Pentax brand and successor to Pentax K-3 II will be announced shortly before Photokina 2016. Not sooner.

If you are waiting for a new APS-C flagship, you'll have to wait for a while. Two other cameras will come waaaaaaaay before that one.

That "rumor" was from November/December when Ricoh was planing to announce the FF at CP+.. the saler is Pentax representative around here and they just got a visit from Ricoh Sales Department representative several weeks before that, so the "wait" thing, was refering to the FF and K3ii ..

There will be something else

J/K (maybe ). Anyway, I wouldn't wait for any DSLR rumor - if you're hearing any, it's made up.

I wasn't talking about you, it was the generic 'you'... I think (it's a bit difficult for me to express the distinction... sorry).
In fact I want to specifically exclude you (kenspo) from that part of my previous post.

Maybe we'll finally see the camera we've been waiting for, the K-02.

-4.5 stops vs -3 stops...
At the risk of being pedantic, it's 4.5 (K-3 II) vs. 3.5 (K-3) stops.
