Hopefully something with much improved AF, 5-axis IBIS, & improved high ISO IQ. 😃

Why are we discussing K-3III? Maybe this camera has another name.
I would suggest they quit the letter/number names and start using creative word names in a made-up language...say, how about "Notasgud-S".

It takes better pictures if you dip in in salt water.

It's an American thing. It started in Atlantic City, NJ in the 1880s. Very popular at the NY State Fair Though it's spelled Taffy...The English would call them Chews...

Gud idea! How about:

Pentax Pixieduster (comes with 43mm Ltd lens)
Pentax Kappa (because Ricoh likes greek letters)
Pen-Fantaxtic Pixelizer
Absolutely Pentax Super Camera -- APSC

The translation means SALES ENDED and not "discontinued":

That's the title of Digital Camera Info's report:

PENTAX K-3 II の販売が終了

But there is more to it: in the first line, in the second line of the bullet point (reader quotation) and in the second line of the third paragraph you'll find ディスコン = phonetically "diskon" = discontinued.

Not sure what is this reporter's source, but I just found a news story about CES that contains this interesting quote: "The CP+ Camera and Photo Imaging Show in Japan starts Feb. 23, and camera brands like to introduce new models in their home country; expect more announcements at that time from some of the firms that will not have a big presence in Las Vegas. Pentax is supposed to introduce a new DSLR there [...]" (my emphasis).

Breaking news: Pentax ambassador inadvertently reveals the name of Ricoh Imaging's soon-to-be-announced APS-C mirrorless camera: Pentax T.
Well if the K-mount is the "King Mount," and the Q-mount is the "Queen Mount"... then what beats both?

The TRUMP MOUNT obviously!

(NB: this is a card game joke, not a politics joke.)
