Hehe..ok When you see what they will do with the K-70, you'll see who's right or not..not long until its out..
I know their marketing phraseology: "Doesn't replace xxx... A new category in itself ... Redefines photography ..." and more.

They said so about K20D vs. K10D, K-7 vs. K20D, K-5 vs. K-7,... K-50 vs. K-30 an so on and so forth.

Still only 11 AF points? Are they kidding? It's 2016.

I only use one for the most part, spot focus. The other 10 are overkill.

This camera is all for APS-C cameras this year.
So, does it mean there's still hope for a non-APS camera annoucement...like a new Q ?

Indeed. Not nearly enough for me to even think about replacing the K-5iis. Still waiting for the new APS-C flagship or third iteration of the K-3. No hurry, I can do what I need to with the kit I currently have...
I am more than pleased with the K5IIs and have no desire to replace it for several years, I have shot less with it than I did with the K-r so cannot justify to myself.

Well if there is no K-3II upgrade this year I guess I will keep the K-5IIs and replace my 7D with the 7D MKII.

They'd better all be cross-type f/2.8 or better!

Let's all save our righteous anger for when we have the official specs, guys and gals... then and only then do we have the right to explode in rage-filled screams of "Pentax is Doomed!"

Remember, the K-1 turned out to be, if not the God Camera of our dreams, an outstanding stills machine at a stunning price point that appears to have exceeded Ricoh's expectations; let's have some faith in the APS-C category.

It is NOT an upgrade for K-50
Looks like one based on the specs. But will the K-70 instead be that retro-looking camera that's been rumored?
