Well we still have the mount. I like the back lcd I hate the grip I don't like the new control dials. I doubt it contains the D-li90, more like the meager dli109. I don't use battery grips and will not start doing so either. If this is the way Pentax is taking the dslr the K-1 is the last one I buy and hopefully Nikon will come with a nice full frame mirrorless that i can adapt my lenses to after that (so I don't have to buy a Sony I don't like their philosophy). I don't want a mirrorless look a like, I want a dslr.

This new small design is nice, but would need to be tried to make an opinion.

I'm just wondering about the wheel that appeared with the K1 ( AE / HDR / CH-CL / etc ..) : is it very usefull ?

How to use front wheel?
It's a pity that there is no upper LCD.
Pointer finger on shutter, middle finger on the wheel.
I guess they could of put a small LCD on it like the K1 but the back screen plus the LCD in the viewfinder should be enough.

Rather strange method for me.

Japanese website Nokishita Camera is reporting that Pentax has registered a DSLR called the KP in Indonesia:

???????「PENTAX KP」???????????|?????????

Google translates the article as:

"Pentax's unpublished single lens reflex camera "PENTAX KP" has been registered as a certification body in Indonesia.

Indonesia POSTEL (line 95)
Company name: Ricoh Imaging Co., Ltd.
Device name: Single lens reflex camera
Country of origin: Philippines
Registration date: January 11, 2017

It seems that Pentax is preparing a new K mount machine. I think that it is not a rumored vintage mirrorless camera because it is a single lens reflex, but I am looking forward to announcing what kind of model KP will be."
or it could mean that its really the Pentax K-3 III - It could be this since pronouncing the K "three three" might sound ridiculous for some, hence the name change. Also the K-3 II successor is due this march-april.

Also K-5 never went beyond mark II, they could have called the K-3 as K-5 mark III. Its not as if they were going to continue the K-5 line anymore, so K-3 was the immediate successor to K-5 II.
So maybe we are seeing the K-3 series being renamed to KP

also looking at the sketch here, it looks identical to K-3 series. It looks too small for a scaled down K-1 ( like D750,6D). (maybe the name K-2 is reserved for it)

I wonder how the front dial will feel to use.. when I have been handed Nikon cameras, the front dial and shutter button were easy for my finger to find. When I was given one Canon camera, my finger didn't know where to go.

The third dial has 3 user delectable settings and that is nice. No top LCD and people will dislike that but there is no room for one.. maybe lack of LCD will appease those that want dtripped down features such as no WIFI or GPS :^)

A return to the OK button toggle from 4-way controller shortcut buttons to AF point select. No ISO button on the top panel and I use that a lot but I imagine the FX3 button will be re-programmable for that.

And, obviously, it is a folding design ! The 'collapse' button is on the back in the upper left !!!

Looks beautiful. I'd like a K-1 II with a similar style (assuming its ergonomics are at the same level).
