Are we sure it doesn't stand for "Kein Problem", "No Problem" in German?
The use of kp I know in German is the acronym for "kein Plan" which means "no clue".

I find that fits perfectly. Because we have:
- no clue what kind of camera it will be
- no clue when it will be announced
- no clue where Pentax is going with their naming scheme

If it is new mount, then KP will be mirrorless.
It's already been noted that the KP will be a DSLR.

Is it true that the KP will be the last Pentax camera that carries lettered and numbered names? The next line will be branded with emojis.

Oh! How about a pink and white "Hello Kitty" themed camera?

(I foresee a group buy on rolls of gaffer's tape...)

Maybe it refers to the mount: P for PLM and the body will not have an aperture block at all and only use PLM lenses. Which would mean a whole slew of PLM lenses released at the same time.

sooo, that is very unlikely...
Not enough PLM lenses for sale in any case
I'm having a hard time imagining the business case for a camera below the K-70 at this point, but if they did such a thing, adding a KAF4 18-55mm lens to the lineup would be sufficient. Most people who belong in that category won't need anything besides two two lenses, and not supporting anything else would keep other buyers buying higher tier products.

Seem Pentax is into odd numbers, K7, K5, K3 and the K1 is taken by the new full frame. So where do they go with the K3 replacement? I suspect the KP is the replacement for the K3 as they K3ll seems to be discontinued. Likely will be shown at the CP+ in February. Anyone know the specific date of that show?

It would be really confusing for Pentax's next full-frame to be called the K3. I don't think they'll do that.

This was already pointed out on page 1 of this thread.

It was also pointed out that the recent "PENTAX KP" registration is for a "Single lens reflex camera".

KP=keep painting…
I was thinking more like "KP=Keep Posting" , because it will have Wifi, and an operating system capable of a web browser, so you can keep posting pics, and rumors on your favorite forums... Bwaaahahahahahahaha!

Hmmm, I hope this wouldn't create some sort of trademark conflict with Hoya Pentax.

I think it'll be the successor to the K-3II...

. Newer 24MP sensor
. AF system from the K-1
. Newer processor (more FPS, faster experience in general)
. New KAF4 mount from the K-70
. Tilt screen (I will go out on a limb and say with a touch screen, a Pentax first)
. Better video! Or maybe just the K-70 video, would be a bit more realistic...

Well it has been awhile since Pentax introduced a film camera.
