That Hoya kept the dark side of the Pentax Corporation? Yes, it's true. And yes, it was their choosing. That's why they killed Pentax Corporation, because they desperately wanted to stick things into people's behinds.

Obviously, there's no relation to a certain upcoming Ricoh Imaging product - but that won't stop the jokes.

I don't see what kind of new para dyne the KP is meant to create. One YT rumor mentioned a 30mp sensor for the KP which sounds ridiculous to me and some other rumors make the camera sound like a child of a Canon 5d mark IV and a Nikon D500.
I suppose it is funny to read such wishlists or imposed sensationalism but there are limits to their entertainment value.
The Olympus e-m1 mark ii has indeed caught my eye, but it's a bit expensive right now especially in Canada and after getting my K-1 i am a bit winded so to speak.

This thread is so funny. The only thing concrete we know about the camera is that it has a radio of some sort and that its name is some form of "KP". There are rumors that it has an available grip(s) with some sort of cool design feature(s). If we are lucky, it is not used professionally by proctologists.

the pentax rumour mill is like a snake eating it;'s tail, it starts on an obscure post gets on here speculation abounds anotehr sight figures they have the inside track and publish and everyone here says what doid i tell you it's coming..... the mirrorless thread before the K-01 was an epically long bit of circular rumours, if the rumours that started as wishes had come true it would have been a digital LX removable VF etc...

Indeed. Some person did find an official product page from the Pentax medical division with the KP series endoscope. Some PF person probably already mentioned this, however if it wasn't;

So then you could tune in KGON or KGW.

Well then you might be disappointed when the kp comes out. I have a reliable source telling me that the kp isn't actually a camera, but an incognito flask designed to help you sneak alcohol into sporting events. Who needs fast af and fps when you have spirits!

The concept is similar to this:
