Price drop K-3?

Good morning.
Do you think that the price of the K-3 II will drop, when Pentax releases their FF.
Price for K-3 II is stable at the moment in Germany at 999 for the body.

Pentax K-3 / K-3II prices might drop when a new APSC model (K-3III ? would be released). Full frame and APSC do not compete. When the Pentax FF will be eventually released, that will sustain the demand for k mount full frame lenses, and we'll continue to see more second hand k mount apsc lenses for sales.

I was wondering this myself. While they are really catering to different markets by the time the K-1 is released the K-3 will be other 6-8 months older so that alone should push prices down.

I think it's fair to say that camera body prices seldom go up. I would expect the price of the K3 II to go down over time, independently of the FF release.
