For those of you interested in the shutter sound:

PENTAX KP VS PENTAX K-1 - YouTube

PENTAX KP VS PENTAX K5IIs - YouTube
So The K-1 is actually louder but the k-5 II is more silent. Probably it's not just the shutter you hear, but mirror slap too. K-1 being bigger, makes more noise.

It also depends on where the microphone was placed. It could be closer to the K-1 in that example and away from the K-5 II in the other. Not sure.

KP doesn't seem to have the cheap, CLACK CLACK sound of the lower end K bodies though.

interesting to see this Pentax KP to get so much attention all over the internet. Something worked out pretty well, is it Pentax K1 being FF made people be interested in anything new coming from Pentax or all that is needed to get attention is high iso number?

I know But I specifically asked about the K3 II, and that was their reply. Unless they are being really sneaky, I think they meant that there will be a K3 III (or whatever it will be named)

You can see that a Pentax camera will really be successful if people (especially non-Pentaxians) are in a hurry to call it 'ugly'

it is even more interesting to see none Pentax users defend it
Also I got some news emails about Pentax KP from sources that never ever mentioned Pentax before as far as I remember their content sent to me. Good to see Pentax shaking some grounds for attention. I wonder if it will get even more attention that K1 did?

Well, I think more so the K-1 got people to turn their heads around and realize that Pentax is worth talking about.
Good to see the brand find recognition.

I upgraded to the K-3ii last year from a K-30. If I hadn't made that upgrade, I'd probably buy the KP on release date...
Unfortunately the KP does not warrant that same feeling from my K-3ii. Hopefully that will change this summer!

The specs of the KP are some one that I want/need a few years ago (K-30 days, no tilt screen, no wifi, not aa filterless and no grip option) I might buy one as since I cannot upgrade to K-1 together with the lenses soon enough. But lenses are coming soon, -Oh wait

Whether it's Kyoto Protocol (energy efficient camera), North Korea (ultra oppressive camera), Katy Perry (pop hit camera that doesn't write its own lenses) or Kim Possible, I'm sure it'll be something special.
Looks more like a full form just like telnet full form, btw company is originally from Philippines and bit a old and renowned company.
