Well based on where the "rumor" originated, who knows?
I stand by it... I feel like reaching outside of the bounds of the day is odious.

To be fair, Pentax isn't saying "release", Pentax Rumors is... you know, to get clicks.
Fair point. Yet it hasn't stopped this thread from accepting it as truth.

According to marketing, the demand will be too high, adding delivery delays. Only the firsts who pre-ordered will get one.

Great news, but April 1st is next week ...
It would be funny if after all the Pentax April 1st jokes we have seen in the past Pentax actually chose April 1st to release it

I don't think they hide cameras inside bags of rice (or anything else) for international shipments.

"Several new Pentax products, including the K-3 Mark III, are already listed at a dealer/online store and will be available for pre-order next week:

  • PENTAX K-3 Mark III camera body (black/silver)
  • PENTAX K-3 Mark III lens kit (black/silver)
  • PENTAX battery grip D-BG8
  • PENTAX hot shoe cover O-HC177
  • PENTAX eye cup FU (via Nokishita)"


Is "available for pre-order" the same as "released"?
This listing induces the "fact" the kit lens will be HD DA 20-40mm f/2.8-4 DC WR limited

any truth to the rumor that Sidd Finch is the first known person to prebuy ?

I might buy the kit if that's what they package it with. I have a 2040mm Ltd already, so definitely wouldn't buy that kitted with the body. Really like the 2040mm anyway, so not sure that I really need the 1650 PLM. Definitely wouldn't buy it if the limited were f/2.8 throughout the zoom range.

A Chinese Web forum...

Just why it should bear any degree of authority over, say Pentax Forums is hard to say. As noted above, what online merchant has a listing?

Edit:...just noticed that ricehigh is one of the sources...

I think in one of videos Walashiro san said that 20-40 will for sure not be kit lens. I doubt new PLM will, Ricoh wants to want to earn money on new lens, not give it away.

RiceHigh is referring to the Chinese forum.
It seems like at least one of the users there was able to test the camera.

The tweets, however, are Nokishita's - and Nokishita is reliable.
