To me it feels like aps-c is out of focus for Pentax. Sure there is this lens on the timeline but all I hear about for the future is new Full frame DSLRs.

I was hoping for a new APS-c K-3ii replacement like the rest of Pentax Nation, but I'll have to wait a bit longer I guess....

Well if a big announcement was coming before x-mass then we would have seen it on Photokina.

Asahi man on dpreview. Also someone on the Facebook page Pentax cameras group spoke with a rep who said they were currently NOT developing an aps-c flagship.

This facebook comment is something I am not aware of.
No flagship apsc would be a disaster for the brand, they really should have a look to the breakdown of K1+K1II vs the rest of historical units sold over the last 2 cycles K5 + K3...

I would rather believe Ricoh Imaging, than someone who posted something on Facebook.

Look at his sig. The word ‘here’ replaced ‘coming’ when K-1 shipped. The word ‘coming’ was quietly in his sig for at least a year before we had concrete news of a FF.

IIRC, he had accurate insight about K-5 ll / lls and K-3 also.

FWIW.

He Who?? What about the K-3II, KP as well as the K-1II? FWIW, I stay off of Facebook completely so if you're referring to anyone there I'm not getting on Facebook just to take a peek at his Signature.
