Wider AF point coverage would be great. If they could make it cover a greater area than the Nikon D850 they could have a class leading camera.

Better Af-c would be nice.

Finally how about an upgrade to video?

It's pretty much a given high ISO will be at least KP level.

Real innovation would be a hybrid viewfinder but thats a dream.
There's already a patent by Ricoh-Pentax for that.

I am sure Ricoh has monitored this thread along with the " why I won't buy a K 3 " thread. Common sense should tell anyone posting to a " negative" thread that the most of the issue they fuss about will never come to life, unless many of these issues are also brought up in a " positive" thread....not everyone visiting this forum are members so if the Pentax K-3 is so bad why do you not purchase a different camera manufacturer's body? Too much drama....

Mostly about bacon. Sometimes squirrels. But mostly bacon. Never bacon from squirrels.

Nothing negative on the WIWBAK3 thread.

It is all about the bacon

Bacon is everything.

In WIWBAK3? In The Thread™?? Nevah!! Our founding father fussed about that horrible doom that had already very much fallen upon us: The RICOH logo on the back of the K-3!

The fussing about things that will never be is mostly contained in the Doom&Gloom News&Rumors section.

Hail bacon!

Back on topic..................

The two features that the K3ii has that the competition does not are - PIXEL SHIFT & ASTRO. The new K3ii should further improve each of these features to pull further away from the competition.


All of the other things mentioned above the competition already has. What's the sense of settling for just meeting the competitions features? If that's all you want, sell your K3ii and buy a Fuji X body.

It will be interesting to see how it uses the 'accelerator', which got very positive responses when used on the KP and soundly criticized when used on the K-1ii.

I think I will be buying the next APSC flagship regardless of what features it has as long as they can top my K-S2, which shouldn't be hard.

I'm looking for:

-Pixelshift
-14-bit RAW
-at least 24MP
-battery grip capable
-duo card slots
-faster burst/buffer
-better ergonomics
-faster AF
-KP/K70 noise control
-fully articulating screen
Buy a KP--you get 90% of your wish list, plus WiFi, Astrotracer capability (with GS01 accessory), High ISO, and tilting screen....Improved 24mp sensor one rthe K-3....Get it now for a gangbuster price of less than $800...winner, winner, chicken dinner....
