Since we don't know the price yet, if it comes in at the $1,000 range I will likely buy one and then have it almost permanently attached to a telescope.

I'm not in the market for a new camera at the speculated price point, but I am curious to see if the price of a used K3 II will drop...

Better go look at the Pentax video with Takahashi San making the announcement, I'm afraid that you are off by about one thousand dollars.

That puts it above K1ii pricing. Wouldn't that make it the most expensive APSC camera on the market?

Now, but the D500 was $2000 when it launched. By the time the K-3 III is released the D500 will be nearly 5 years old...

No, but you can see that there are two choices for upgrading in Pentax from an older K-3. It's the K-3 III or K-1 full frame. Both are plausible, the advantage to Ricoh of someone going to the K-1 is the opportunity to sell them different lenses down the line.

I'm very impressed to meet a Pentaxian who is satisfied with what he's got! Personally, if I can get it past the wife, I'll jump on it.

I see the Mark III as a bold move, wrapping up the latest tech in a 'traditional' package. A subtle jab at the mirrorless revolution.

My Final Camera State - The Three Amigos
By Mike Price

Oct 27, 2020

Three Amigos are all I have now! You know, three cameras. I am in my final and last camera element and environment. Sold everything I have accept a Pentax K1-II, a Ricoh GR III and a Fujifilm XT-4. No matter what phones do or where the camera companies go, I am in my final camera state. . . .
