Interesting to see the integration of on sensor PDAF, K-02 and/or new Q with PDAF can't be too far out right???

Even many belive it, K-70 is NOT replacement for K-50.
OK, that jsut made the most sense naming wise... But Pentax is all over the place with names...

I'd prefer a K-3 than what is listed there in the specs unless it had a K-3 styled body (BG, top LCD, etc...)

I like my K3, and it may well be my last APSC camera (at least until it wears completely out), but I never have used the BG on it. It kinda sits there being sad. I hate to say it, but I also rarely use the top LCD on my K3 or K1.

I've never used a camera with top LCD or BG (my only camera ever is my K-50), but I would really like to have a top LCD as a battery saver.
I'm not sure if I'd use a BG if I had one, maybe if I had some longer lenses I would?

Not all info is correct. Even many belive it, K-70 is NOT replacement for K-50. I have all info here, but i won't step over the line again..haha

There are more interesting stuff going on then the K-70
There will never be a right moment to get a replacement for my k-30 as Pentax seems to launch new models all the time now. I wait for the next thing, and the next, ande the next. Maybe Im too happy with my old friend....?

@kenspo, good to read you back again! Sorry to be hijacking this thread but do you have any feedback on how the sales of K-1 are going compared to Ricoh plan?

It seems more like a K-50 upgrade, but with some features of the K-3 II (pixel shift, etc).

I don't know, some features are exciting (like Pixel shift and 24MP), others are disapointing (the old SAFOX X), and many are "it depends" like SR (K-50/K-S2 or K-3ii level ?), integrated flash (with or without wireless control). And, as always, the price is always THE make or break feature!
