Pentax way of naming their high-end cameras always changes when the overall body design changes too. For instance during the digital era: 1st body type: *ist D, *ist DS and *ist DS2 2nd body type: K10D and K20D 3rd body type: K-7, K-5, K-5 II(s), K-3 and K-3 II 4th body type: KP
From Pentax Rumors:
  • The Pentax KP is not a replacement for the K-3 II, it’s a brand new concept, with a very well-considered battery grip system
  • Update – the exact translation from German is “the KP is more than a refinement of the K-3II“, this does not exclude that the KP could be the replacement for the K-3II
Seems to be you are right!

Why stop at 5 Axis? Let's go for 6.

And triple card slots.
Got you, there is no need of substantial Information. Go on with jokes, rumors and a nonsense talk of the labeling.

So 4 card slots?

You can't expect that posting a bulletpoint list of info, without any mention of source, can be constituted as factual. That said, 2 card slots is pretty much a given.. but 28MP sensor? From where did that come?

Probably. But there are also 9 MP and 42 MP Sony sensors too.

I'm not sure where he got the Pentax camera would have a 28 MP sensor.. so I was inquiring from where he received that information.

Comes with the territory. That is why this stuff is in the rumors section. It exists to keep the silliness out of the main forums.

new pentax Q

QuoteOriginally posted by D1N0 Quote
There are two things mixing up here.
The Pentax KP which was found in an Indonesian document, and a fantasy MX-1 Q-7 drawing published by a Japanese magazine (It clearly says M-E not KP and it is clearly mirrorless so not K-anything).:


Not the same rumor

looks to me as a new Pentax Q

If it says it's not a k-3II replacement, then it must be something new. But knowing that only the flagship APS-C comes with a battery grip, then probably it is the k-3II replacement but on a much higher level. Things are getting exciting. I'm looking forward to better image quality at high ISOs and better AF and more lenses too.

K01 - Mirrorless doesn't exclude K mount.

It does when the body is about as deep as the hot shoe.

This picture with M-E is not rumor, but old pure fantasy of Japanese magazine.

There is no mirror, hence it can't be a reflex camera.
