I think we will have to wait until January or maybe April next year for information.

no worries, just kidding

but, does that confirm that it will be called the K-4 ?
Of course not K-4,why it should have an old name?
It only can be a K-3 something or a K-2 or something else.
And nope,there are no specs around the internet or any other channels till today.
Only an absolute minimum,but absolute nothing about current specs.
Only that Pentax was in best hope that they can show anything last Photokina about this.
But there was the long time of more than 2 month no production of K-1 and APS-C K-

Best regards

Pentax only uses 1,2, 3 5 and 7 and 0's No 4,6,8,9. Also letter's are used. (expect for the 645 format, where 6 and four are used for obvious reasons). So no K-4 K-6, K-8, or K9, but a K-2 because they already used 1, 3, 5 and 7. Or they will do like Canon en keep adding roman numerals to the K-3 (but they didn't with the K-5)

Thanks asahi man. At least we know something's cooking in Pentax land. I'm really interested in what they'll improve on the new APS-C flagship. With all our with all our wishing, whining and grumbling Pentax will have a lot of ideas to come up with a new camera. Last wish; I hope they'll maintain the k-3 body. At least they don't have to design a new battery grip.

haha yes


Yet I'm kind of hoping we get the K-1 body myself.. the slightly extra height would be great for holding (since my pinky hangs in the air right now on crop bodies due to the body being too small).

It should be interesting to see what they do. I'm thinking we get a different grip type or they move us to dbg6...

In Pentaxland, 4 would be an odd number.

I'd keep the name K-3 and add III, no surprise, anyone knows the positioning so it's easy.
Also it let's the possibility of using K-2 for either a sport APS (very doubtful IMO) or a more affordable FF down the road (in a couple years).

Seems reasonable to me.

Excellent! Many other camera manufacturers like Olympus, Nikon, & Sony have been tempting me with recent offers, but I think I will hold off from getting any bodies & lenses until I find out what Pentax does with their next generation APS-C flagship. I can wait until the end of 2017 to figure out if I stay with Pentax or move along.

As for now, I'm gonna keep shooting my K-50 'cause there are a few contests that I plan on entering.

As for me, I think my k-5II and k-3II will last for quite while. Though I'm excited what Pentax will bring on the k-3III, I might just wait for the k-3V.

The K-70 is the most bang for buck you can get right now. IQ-wise it is unsurpassed because of what Pentax did with noise processing and the fact they decided to give it 14 bit RAW. For a much lower price than Any Fuji X-t2 or Olympus OM-D EM-1 mk II. If you can live with K-5 II AF and metering this is the camera to go to. Not everybody needs AF tracking or 20fps shooting or noob proof video.

I guess the next likely Pentax news stops will be Salon de Photo in Paris 10-14 November, and then CP+ in Yokohama (Feb 23-26 2017). Most likely CP+ for some real product news, judging by the past. Not long to wait.

I look forward to a Pentax drone being announced , to compete with the likes of the Dji Mavic Pro. That would be cool.
