This is $1000 more than the last version, right?
This is more than the K1 Mark II, isn't it?

More than $1000. I think the K-3ii was about $A1400 at its launch in 2015.

Officially, no: Pentax K-1 Mark II DSLR Camera (Body Only) Black 15995 | Ricoh Australia ($A3249)
Unofficially, yes: PENTAX K-1 MARK II DSLR CAMERA (BODY ONLY) BLACK (15995) 27075299948 | eBay ($A2699 with ebay discount).
Most buyers in the last couple of years would have got the K-1ii for less than $2800.

JUST TO PUT IT IN CONTEXT.

When I purchased my D*ist with battery grip way back in the long ago (2003) it cost me just on $3000.00 AUD. and a 512mb CF card was a few hundred as well.

The price of this camera does not surprise, nor has it put me off. Roll on 30/4..

That is because Europeans are richer than ....! No, just kidding, in Europe these kind of things are always more expensive, but that is due to the longer warranty period and the fact that in the European union manufacturers/sellers are also responsible for their product if it is malfunctioning within the period that one must expect that the product functions as described. So for a K-3 II the EOL was three years after introducing the camera, you may expect the K-3 III to be functioning for at least the same period without any flaws.

yes I'd love one of these, but not at that price, have to look at the second hand market in maybe 2 years, maybe a second hand K-3 II in the meantime.
