I started with a Pentax Spotmatic in 1967 from the PX in Viet Nam. Currently using a K50. Does anyone know when the K70's are hitting the market, I'm thinking of upgrading.

In theory the reported availability dates that I saw were "July". But July is rapidly about to expire...

I started with a Pentax SPOTMATIC that I bought in the Subic Bay, navy exchange.1968.. It came with a terrific 50mm F 1.4 lens. I then bought a prime 200mm lens, they were both screw-mounts. The stuff was fantastic, and I never forgot that QUALITY. After years of great service, I let those three items go to a friend. Because my brother(a navy photographer) died in a helicopter crash, leaving me his canon stuff. But a few years back, I came back to Pentax, and I'm glad I did.. It amazes me, a lot of Pentax is now made in Viet Nam. So was my dedication and introduction to Asahi Pentax. It's all good. RJM

Welcome to the forums - good to have you with us. Not sure about K-70 availability dates, but I suspect you're not the only one eagerly awaiting them!

Welcome to the forum, your K-70 will be a lot closer than those of us who waited for the K1, in my case that was about eight years.
