I do not buy it cuz none of those who ordered it are happy with the pictures. Also because Pentax has not replaced the faulty units for the ones got a bad sample.

Bit early to complain about faulty units since the KP has not shipped yet?

These statements don't make any sense. No one has had an opportunity to purchase a KP yet, so no one has had an opportunity to be happy, or unhappy, with pictures created by the KP, and no one has received a bad sample of the KP as far as we know.

Sorry, I thought it was clear what I meant with those non-sense statements. For sure I do not know anything about the camera.

One memory card slot, three dials, Prime IV and the Accelerator unit, 7 FPS, and 6 shot buffer. This could be the successor to the K-5.

Without at least a 10min 4K (30p or 60p), think its hard sell man. I still prefers to use my K3 and my mobile phone for 4K videos. Except low light video is horrendous. Only if......

Because it cost almost twice as much as K3-II in Sweden given the current prices... And even if K3-II gets discontinued that won't make KP a superior camera.

* Why I won't buy a KP * cause it will have "Ricoh" on the back of the camera and as such i am unable to take 'awesome' pictures with it.😛

Because even at £1100 it isn't really an upgrade on my K-3. I'll wait for a Pentax that gives me all of the things I like about the K-3, but with less noise/faster AF and improved speed/buffer - basically a D500/7DMkIII rival is what I want.

I have a K-1 for most of my shots, i'd like a better APS-C body for nature/sports.
