The K-3's shutter? Where do you see that? There's the mention of an electronic shutter, but otherwise...

Hmm... it does leave room for an APS-C flagship, as I suspected... but will it happen? And if so, when? And how? Should I start a thread for speculations?
Would this make it the first non-flagship APS-C with a magnesium body?

Cool! Did they give you a PLM lens to test with it, like the 55-300, to test A/F speed? The 31 & 77 ought to be great for testing the new sensor resolution and low light capabilities, but the DFA70-200 might be better for test both AF & image quality combined?

Can you say what firmware is on yours, or will you have to shoot us if you tell us? :-)

Funny, the KP looks better in your quick snap than in all the promotional photos.

Looking good - it has a similar "I mean business" look to it the K3 has (imho.)

I see no difference but I liked the look from the begining (but not what the look implies on the battery side).

Kenspo, if you are allowed to report that to us at all (which I highly doubt but I just MUST ask you ), do you feel like there are any improvements over K3II on the AF side?

Funny, when there is not other object in pictures to judge on actual camera size, at first glance, this KP looks like a K1.

Could you ask them if the new algorithms can be backported to the K-1, please?

Come on, I spent all my money on a K1, don't tell me that they've improved AF on the KP.

Yes, and not too hard to imagine what a K3ii successor may look like as well.
