The quoted part yes.
From quoted part I understand a new APSC K mount but from later Kenspo's reaction I understand there is not much to expect

So a K-3 II successor.

As I said, the best possible news from Pentax we can (realistically) expect. A couple of us Pentax fans will be happy and change their old K-5s and K-3s. However viewed from wider angle nobody else will notice. Pentax has never been good at marketing, unfortunately and even the super-duper APSC DSLR will go unnoticed these days, since the Canon EOS R, the already introduced Nikon Z and the announcement of Panasonic fullframe will steal the show. Not to mention we cannot expect anything grounbreaking, "just" a decent DSLR, but at Photokina nobody will care if there is some other DSLR (notabene crop-sensor).
You forgot about Fuji. XT-3 specs looks good.

So I got a message from a very high person within Pentax. So I know what is going to happen at Photokina! I was really dazzled by him. Really hard to believe it.....but it is for real. You can't think of the first class world star they invited to host this event. I can't reveal that at this moment......

But it is going to the evening of september 25th, the evening before the start of Photokina 2018......

They are going to organise the biggest party of this years Photokina.....,

The Q after party!

They're bringing in John de Lancie?

If they attempted that, Pentax really would be doomed!

If it contains all zooms: 11-18, 16-50 and 50-135 and all are modern design with electronic mount (I think is KAF4). Add to this a new crop body and I am satisfied (my wallet probably less). I am fine with either DSLR or MILC setup for that.
I was thinking of an update of the existing line of DA* lenses, of course. Isn't the 11-18 expected to be launched in 2019 or later, according to the roadmap? Updates of existing lenses doesn't show up on the road map, after all. :-)

I think I'm going to have to ignore this thread now.
Wild speculation, I quite enjoy.
Confirmed news, I would love!

We have about 22 days until Photokina. I guess we'll see what happens then.

Right, will have to wait and see.

But I guess most interesting from other rumours seem to be the rumoured Leica S3, the Fuji GFX-50R as additions to the MF sector -> maybe hints for something in this field by Pentax
and the Fuji X-T3, with BSI 26MP, 4K 60p, 11fps this would be specs suiting some Pentax model quite well.

(okay, I broke my word of not adding any speculation...)
