Actually, if you take the fake plastic covers off a Nikon D600 there is a K-3 underneath! Nikon's financial troubles have been such that they agreed to a secret deal with Hoya/Pentax to develop the next generation camera based on their sensor. Part of the non compete was that Pentax had to hold off their introduction of the nearly same camera for 6 months after the Nikon went on sale.

I'm a bit surprised that no news about K-01 successor have been published today. I was expecting to see at least two or three K-02 release news by now.

As for the Pentax full frame, I've got one, and it still works. Still kinda like it, even though it's rather simple in design. But maybe that's one of the reasons, as well as the rugged and field-tested (by myself) design.
It's called Pentax P30T.

Good luck with the K-3. I'm sure it's one of a kind.

Actually it's the K-02A, a FF camera with an APS-C veiwfinder with binocular eyepiece viewing. Should go for about $5000, with the sensor and exposure modes extra.
