My speculation is that K3iii will switch to full frame. Then we will have :
K1 - high end full frame
K3iii- middle level full frame
K5iii- high end APS-C
K70 - middle level APS-C

And so it begins .....

Roll on another 500 or so pages of totally ridiculous predictions until an announcement is forthcoming.

No. In a word.

"Cut it out."

There have been statements from several credible sources that Pentax does not currently plan to introduce another FF camera below or above the K-1. So luckily the chance of your speculation being true is pretty minuscule.

You've shown great restraint here.

Even though it is a good sign that Pentax may release a new flagship in the near future, I just bought a K-3II last June. It is unlikely that I will jump on this new model but certainly intrigue by what NEW features this body will bring. My plan for this year is new lens, not new camera body. But like most plans, it will be changed.
OK then, we better notify Ricoh of your plans immediately, so that they may proceed accordingly

I am upset. I hated the K3II because it had no built-in flash. Now what am I left to hate? Pent-up hate is a terrible thing, it leads to people buying large numbers of Fuji lenses which won't mount on any body but Fuji's and we all know, nobody owns a Fuji.

Is it too early to start a "I won't buy a K-3 II successor" thread

This can mean only one thing if it's true. The next generation APS-C flagship is almost here!

When It's a camera with a new sensor/processor/AF it probably will not be called K3 III but something else, like K-2
