We need another one: It will natively accept screwmount lenses and K with adapter :P.

3. There are many AF points than ever.

I would hope so! How should one evaluate the word ever; anything greater than the 27 points of the K-3?


If you have the AF points distributed over the same area, does it matter if there are 27 or 59 points? Does it make a large difference once you get above say ... 10 points?

For continuous AF, yes. If you have a moving subject, you want those AF points close together to minimize the risk of the subject falling out of focus then the camera having to reacquire focus.

How about uncrippled K-mount. That should add some heat.

Nooooo ... more rice junk.

Saw this on FB, by chance, and just read the three pages so far ...

More sticky rice junk.

Closed this now, SVP.

Ricehigh is pretty tricky - he tends to mix real information with inflated imaginary info. I think his goal is to raise expectations too high so when the real camera comes around, it's always a let down. I wouldn't believe anything he says and I'm amazed people still quote him.

they quoted ricehigh
If RiceHigh posted that the sun will rise tomorrow, I'd stock up on flashlight batteries tonight.

Hand-held super resolution would be nice. But why wasn't it included in the K-3 II if this is true?
I would guess that it would require a more powerful/faster image processor and maybe a sensor with faster readout speed.

If we're going to deal in rumours, perhaps we should have a thread for totally made-up, utterly unsubstantiated, ludicrous top-of-the-head stuff and see how much of it (if any) comes true, and the winners each get a free T-shirt from the Pentaxforums 2016 run. Here's mine - not only a decrippled K mount BUT shipped with an M42 thread adapter and able to meter open with SMC Takumars.

Just a thread? We have an entire subforum which is about 99% what you describe. It's called Pentax News and Rumors.

"World's Fist New Original Superiority"?

There are so many errors of spelling and phraseology and so many nonspecific promises that I wouldn't trust a word of it. Looks like complete made-up garbage to me, the whole lot of it, and I wouldn't use it if the paper it was printed on was the last toilet tissue on earth.
