Old news...It has been a long time (years?) since the Pentax USA Web site has been complete and working properly. I guess that illuminates the depth of the long-term conspiracy and game of shadows that has been played. The K-1 is a grand hoax on the same order as the faked moon landing. What is more, the so-called K-3II is nothing more than a mildly modified K-7 that is being pulled from the market due to the defection of a few key people who were responsible for generating the faked pixel shift and astrotracer images.

It has been at least 2010 since Pentax has produced any real product or actually sold more than a dozen or so of its cobbed-together Frankencameras. The conspiracy extends to this forum where most of the content is created as fake comment by a handful of poorly-paid uneducated lackeys chained to a single long desk in a deep underground bunker.

We have been royally pwnd.

nearly true......I would go so far and call you an encouraged loyalist to the brand, if I would not feel somehow you are doin sarcasm on folks which mostly agree with what you stated here
nonetheless:

Steve I take it your not a Pentax fan
Only on the rumors forum. Here, my evil twin takes control. On the other forums, I am a huge fan boy and have been for a little over a decade.

I can sympathize. I still think K-1 and KP were expected to appease us.. much to the dismay of many. They've announced new bodies in the September/October time before though... so might be right around the corner.

If they are going to release a K3 II sequel, it would make the most sense to announce it in the fall and release it before Christmas. Seems like January would be the worst possible time for a release -- I don't know any one who has spending money then...

Not sure. The peak birding season is in spring. No hurry to release that kind of camera because Christmas (I'm talking for me ). Prime lenses for the K1 should come before Christmas. Ok, at least Pentaxians should know early enough what to order to Santa.

True.. I think the K-3 (original version) was released in October 2013, IIRC.

Wouldn't they want some kind of "splash" just before CP+??

I think maybe save a lens for CP+. I'm hoping for Sept/Oct we get K3 III, K-1 silver or gun metal edition, and FF primes!

Fully agree with that timeline, but we are already mid August.
I shoot for almost one year with my RX100 which gives excellent results but way too short in terms of range, needing this K3 III asap to get my lenses back!

You do realize that you're fabricating unsubstantiated arguments, don't you ? (see bold words)

I expect a K-3ii replacement pretty soon. The KP and the K3ii are an ill fit together in the line-up. Over here the KP cost significantly more than the K3ii!
