I don't think anyone could sell an APSC camera at that price.
Except Leica ;-)

Most of the the camera rumor sites - including the ones that have a fairly high accuracy percentage - botch the English because there is often a least one language translation in the information chain.

Nikon has the amazing D7200.

If you look closely at the D7200 it ain't so "amazing"
What he said. It is an incremental improvement over the D7100 which was a notch lower than the K-3. That being said, your comment regarding the AF is spot on. If that is what you need, then best to buy Nikon.

That being said, the only features I thought were hokey were the crop modes, video frame rates, and price...obviously induced by extended periods of substance abuse.

It would have to go down to an ISO of six or thereabouts, and deliver results as clean and crisp at one million as it did at one hundred. And have an uncrippled mount. And about fifty megapixels on the sensor. And pixel shift you could use shooting hand-held (above a certain shutter speed, at any rate). And a sensor that could displace forward or backward in the lens axis to tweak manual focus.

Then, maybe.
Ok so at the risk of looking totally ignorant- I have read over and over about the Pentax "crippled" mount. I have yet to find an explantation although admittedly I have not spent much time researching it. What is meant by a "crippled" mount? Thanks in advance for your help.

If it won't do 4K holograms I'm not interested.

"Crippled" refers to the change made very late in the film era and in all the pentax DSLRs so far released, to eliminate the aperture coupling arm inside the mirror box. In the film cameras, this read how many stops the aperture was set relative to wide open, and enabled the camera to know what the shutter speed should be prior to the aperture closing down when the shot was taken. Because of this, Pentax DSLR users with Pentax K or M type lenses (including 3rd party) must manually force a stop-down to meter at the desired aperture before taking the shot, and do this every time the settings have to be changed (eg because the light changes or a differently lit subject is selected).

It's a state of affairs many of us would like reversed, but according to interviews I have seen quoted it's mechanically tricky to reintroduce it. Given that the full-frame is by necessity a clean sheet of paper design and not an evolution from previous models, it's hoped the Ricoh engineers have taken the time and the trouble to put this feature back in. We're not holding our breath, though.
