But this time Pentax product pages and at least one online shop claimed it is the successor to the K3 II, and they told the press the same thing
DPR is Fake News.*

The K-3 replacement, APSc flagship is the next K-Mount** body in line, coming between late spring and late summer.

FULL STOP.



* The USA Press Release says "Heir to the K-3 legacy." and refers to KP having many of the K-3 features. It DOES NOT SAY KP is the K-3 replacement or successor.
** Added for clarification at the suggestion of Mistral75 (see below).

I'm not replacing anything with a KP. I don't need a stinkin' KP, whatsoever!! But I'm getting one anyway. This uber-cool device will be my new all-time favorite camera, no doubt... can't wait to scoop one up!
Me too, should be a neat camera despite the merited complaints and wishes. What color?

Right.
I'd actually consider the KP as a sidekick to my K-3ii if they shared the same battery.

Oh, and... Hi - 8 frame RAW buffer? Is that a joke?!
I am doing just that... They can share a battery with the new battery grip, which will work for me.

The grip takes the larger batteries?

Yes, it takes both the D-LI109 and the D-LI90P.

This is like the K-30 was, it had new stuff the current top of the line APS-c body didn't. And as a result it's till hanging around. This body being the first with Prime IV the accelerator and new focussing algorithms could be in a similar position.

Too bad they couldn't make a charger accepting both batteries.

I really do like the look of the camera.
But that front dial looks very non-ergonomic to me. I would like to be able to hold it....unfortunately there isn't a place that stocks Pentax DSLRs within 2000 miles from me (not exaggerating)

Maybe not enough market for a GRIII with 24mp.

There are three Lens lectures scheduled. IIRC GR's are typically announced in April.
