Sorry if some of the comments came over a bit heavy, Dan. At moments like these - much-anticipated new camera in the offing - some people here are very sensitive to anything that sounds like someone having a bit of a go at them (like trolls). I guess they assume the whole world already knows - when actually the rest of the world couldn't care less. But the new 'flagship' APS-C camera is coming (very soon I expect). It should have quite a few new and/or improved features. I still use a K-3 and I don't intend to replace it for a long time yet. All the current Pentax line up (K-3ii, KP and K70) offer a lot more bang for the buck than similarly priced competitors cameras. And the Forums really are a friendly and very helpful place. Stick around. You will find it is a nice place to be. People would normally be very welcoming but in this case they were too hyped up and reacted to your question in the wrong way.

OK guys, I've learned my lesson. I posted my first comment ever on this forum, and now wish I had not.

Sorry I don't know what some of you already knew, so in order to avoid looking stupid in future I'll hang back in the shadows.

Maybe I should re-convert back to Canon?
Dan, I guess it is easy to forget how well informed many of us are compared with the non forum reader. By the same token when posting a new thread it may be useful to search a bit to ensure the topic isn't well hashed.

I suggested the thread close tongue in cheek. Pentax forums tends to leave them open unless they get ugly. My anticipation of a deluge of blather to pump post count prompted my remarks not your subject.

As for the apsc body... Pentax announced the discontinuation of the k-3 ii a while back. The KP wasn't ever billed as the successor but it has the best image quality and is the most advanced apsc Pentax makes currently. The new flagship apsc that has been shown in mock up has a third control wheel. It is also anticipated to have the same accelerator chip technology that is in the k1 mkii and KP. It likely also has a new sensor.

Welcome. Sorry the reception was out of character for us. Keep posting.

My K-3 was discontinued before your K-3 II and it's just fine.
I hope you continue to enjoy your vintage camera for many years to come.

Don't worry, you're fine. Some of us are just a little wired and weird and easily triggered.

Apologies accepted folks. I did not spend adequate time investigating this issue in other threads. Had I done so I would not have excitedly begun this new thread.

I will stick around, as Iíve learned a lot on this forum, and very much like Pentax, which I first bought only three years ago,

I donít plan on going back to Canon, or to Nikon, Leica, Hasselblad or Sinar, all of which served me very well for five decades of my professional career.

Now that I have converted, Iím happy. I currently use both the K-3 and K-3 II, and just ordered a used K-1 (first version).

Looking forward to finding more expertise here.

That's great news and welcome to the forums. I'm sure you will enjoy your new K-1 too.

Nay! Just keep posting.


Canon....... Well.... Canon is Canon. Hahaha!


Ricoh has already teased us with a model of the upcoming APS-C flagship. Hopefully it's out sometime next year.

You can still get K3 and K3II's from mapcamera in Shinjuku... if you're in Japan. Used but in good quality.
