Usually, 2 days before release/announcement we will see the leak of specs.

The original source (Nokishita-Camera.com) who uncovered the KP registration tweeted a couple more KP things a few days ago. Unless Google's translation is wrong (Twitter's built in translation is unintelligible), it sounds like this will replace the K3ii. I can't tell from Google's translation whether he says a silver KP will be announced now or at a later date. The translations from Google are:

"Confirmation of Pentax KP's coming soon. It is a class equivalent to K - 5 and K - 3 II on the merchandise classification, and it is not an entry model such as K - S2 or K - 70.# Quick News # Rumor"

"Confirm that Pentax KP and a new battery grip D - BG 7 will be announced next week. Silver (number unknown is unknown) is likely to be announced together (undetermined) this time. # Follow-up # rumor"

????????? (@nokishita_c) on Twitter
Good catch. My own translation is as follows.

Twitter (sent Friday morning, Japanese time)

"It is confirmed that Pentax KP will be announced soon. As for market positioning, it's equivalent to K-5 and K-3, not an entry-level model such as K-S2 or K-70."

Twitter (sent Friday night JST)

"It is confirmed that Pentax KP and battery grip D-BG7 will be announced next week (*). A silver version is likely to be announced at the same time (whether it's a limited edition [or a regular model] is unknown)."


(*) "Next week" last Friday = this week. We know the announcement shall take place on Thursday the 26th at 7am JST.

Guess you missed this post:
I guess you missed my point. I am saying it won't be K-P but KP because it looks too much like K-m/x/r

New Battery grip again? That will suck. Hasnt the BG-6 been only for the k-3 series. Cant we have another series before a new grip is introduced.

if i remember right the BG-5 was for K-7 and K-5.

Are you trying to raise views for that video? There's nothing to be seen there...

Some saying the KP will have a Samsung sensor. I don't think Pentax has enough volume for Samsung to start baking sensors for them.
