KP reported discontinued by Pentax Rumours

Haven't noticed anything on this here, but just saw today's screen for Pentax Rumours which says the KP is no longer listed as for sale in Japan. Having just acquired a K1 Mk2 I have no skin in that game as much as KP owners seem quite happy with their cameras.

It could end up being the best Pentax I never bought.

I did see it appears to show under discontinued on Ricoh's website. My guess is that the K3iii was intended to slot in as its replacement and be available around now, and the processes at work to ramp down manufacturing of the KP operated on a separate timeline from the K3iii and its interminable delays. So the sub-$700 sales for the Kp are the fire sale. Folks should get on them quick.

My thoughts as well, though my reasons for not buying are still the same.

RIP, P KP...
