Why I wont buy a K3II (Caution: Subliminal Mind Control Thread)

I Just Couldn't Resist !
Cant say that Im all "Smiles" and all "Warm and Fuzzy Inside" over a new K3II being announced Yesterday , as my wallet suddenly became $1099 lighter and I cannot figure out exactly "Why" or even more importantly...."How" ?
Is the release of the K3II also accompanied with some sort of secret marketing campaign heavily laced with subliminal mind control technology ? I swear....The screen was flickering at the brief Adorama showing and I noticed it also on the Japan site too ? Next thing I know a Purchase/Order receipt shows up in my Email inbox for a K3II !
Have we all underestimated the marketing (obvious lack of) by Pentax over the years ? Maybe there has always been a secret campaign we never knew existed or what Pentax was "Really" up to ?
The "Ricoh" may be gone from the back of the K3II Body , but I suspect that looking at too many Full sized Images on here has embedded some secret Pentax Exif data laced with subliminal Bugs into my subconscious mind......CAUTION.......DO NOT LOOK AT THE NEW K3II ...... ADS CONTAIN SUBLIMINAL MIND CONTROL TECHNOLOGY !

All I know is that since I have seen this image, every other camera seems to produce trash... even Full-Framers

Holy. Mother. Of. God.

No way am I buying that. My other cameras will be ashamed to show their faces.

But so has the flash, a little bit of weight and the starting (UK) price is currently the same as the existing K3. You still have to make / buy your own cheese and haggis sandwich though!

What a choice:- flash or GPS or calories

Yes....that is very similar to what seemed to activate the bugs that were implanted into my subconscious mind ! Here was what I think contained the "Control Factor" that was activated.....this is the 100% Crop ! First is with Pixel shift Off....2nd is with Pixel shift ON.....the second image has the Subliminal Mind Control "Release Factor".
There is definitely a connection here !
CAUTION....DO NOT LOOK AT THE SECOND IMAGE !

No flash really... I always carry a flash in my camera bag, now it might get used once or twice. It comes from having shot in a era when there was no pop up flash. ( I can here the gasps of the under 20 crowd, "no pop up flash, what is that old geezer talking about?...." Pentax finally is making my habits make sense.

Maybe there will be an app to trigger the flash from ones smart phone.
Hold the phone above the camera for best results.

Yup, looking at images is worse than the ads I'm thinking Note that the watch is dead, it only has a single second hand.. in faux-veon mode a live watch would have four!

I've shot both with pop-up flash (out of necessity) and with a dedicated unit... the pop-up flash is handy to have but then again, when I need portability I think K-01, not K-3II...
Last trip abroad I made, it was K-01 with 18-55 and I even left the hood home to save space!
But when I'm near home, it's lcd viewfinder, flash, even a heavy tripod.
And pics with a dedicated flash turn out so much better...

BTW... that sample blows... this makes so much more sense than Olympus' implementation...

When I first zoomed in I felt like I didn't zoom in at all. I had to download the image to check if it's really 24MP and I'm really at 100%. These images seem to lack that soft-fuzzy-smeared-pixelated-mess feeling I used to have when blowing images up to 1:1 on my monitor. I need to get a new one I guess. I can't pixel peep with my current monitor anymore. Everything looks just perfect.

The sample photo looks outstanding, and I like the subject matter too.
