Just confirmed. The body is exactly 2,000$ so the premium kit is probably 2200-2300$

Just search for "Pentax K-3 III" and you'll see all the announcements from the major camera sites at the top right now.

One thing odd to me though -- 1 SD slot is UHS-II and the other is just UHS-I.

I was fortunate enough to test one of the K-3 mark III's myself as well and made a first personal video impression of my time with the camera:

Very promising early review. I really enjoyed your photos of the wildlife in the snow. Especially the buffalo creature -- lots of depth and a strong pose.


I noticed a shot or two near the start of the 'surfing' shots where they were out of focus. But 95% of them look there. I think Pentax might have finally done it.
