Pentax "KP" DSLR registered in Indonesia

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"Pentax's unpublished single lens reflex camera "PENTAX KP" has been registered as a certification body in Indonesia.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

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.

Hopefully not to be confused with Pentax Medical's Kp series video colonoscopes:

Excellent for beginners. 'Your K-P camera can take P-K lenses'. Keeps things simple.

"KP" won't be popular among military circles...

Unless this means you get to ditch the kitchen and take the Pentax out for some shooting.

"You got KP duty!"

... it makes my head hurt - time for more asprin. This naming approach comes, then goes, now who knows. I guess it's just Pentax being Pentax.

A successor to the K-S1, I'd guess. Maybe it's that long-rumored retro DSLR.
