Now with the K-1 finally released & kind of "out of the way", is there any news on the upcoming APS-C stuff?

How? Earliest they'd release one would be Photokina (which I doubt), which is still a couple of months ahead. And Pentax isn't exactly known for leaking specs well in advance.

Oh ... come on ... what do you have to lose? I mean, except for two K-1s, a 24-70 f/2.8, a 70-200 f/2.8 ...

I'll take this as something good heading our way & I'm guessing before the year ends too.

I feel Pentax will offer a K-3 replacement soon to stay in the game. I looked at the posts elsewhere showing how well the K-1 is selling - that is terrific. I think the K-1 was number 4 while the D500 was number 1. What I found interesting was how far down that same list you had to go to get the next Pentax camera. After the K-1 it seemed you had to go down many spots - maybe to the 40th to 50th place to see the next Pentax camera. Pretty far to me with a number of Nikon, Canon, Sony and other cameras, cropped and full frame, posted before you reached the K-3II. I sense the K-3 series will need a refresh to regain sales momentum in light of newer competition from Nikon, Canon and others. The next K-3 doesn't need a lot but it certainly needs better AF.C performance. While the a full frame is well suited for many photography areas the cropped camera is suited for action. Now that Pentax has a terrific camera for many areas with the K-1 it needs to improve the K-3 follow-on for action, for sports, for wildlife. For those areas much improved AF.C/tracking compared to the K-3 will be critical.

Shush. If we mention that one more time a bunch of angry people will come to our houses and lynch us
