quite a big gap, too big I would say.

Even if K3iii price goes steadily down to 1500USD and K70ii is introduced at maybe 700USD it still leaves a lot of room for those who can not afford new Apsc flagship...
Unless they plan to release a stripped down FF around 1000-1200 USD ...

The KP Battery Grip

I am thinking about buying one, so far I used a charged spare to swap when needed in the day. I guess I would mostly need this d-bg7 3 to 4 weeks per year which makes purchasing price quite steep for limited use. Most of the time I enjoy the small form factor of my KP but when in the mountains I would need more autonomy. Also I shoot a couple of kids play dates per year and not worrying about batteries and whether they are properly charged is a big plus when shooting 1000 pics in an afternoon...

Within euro zone and even in the UK, KP was discounted around 700 EUR quite a few times over the last 2 years. Some here probably paid even less than that when purchasing attractive bundles

Don't forget KP was "hated" when out in 2017 if I am not mistaken. Everyone was waiting for a K3ii successor and had more in mind than KP was bringing at that time. I honestly admit I was part of these negative ppl criticizing battery life, lack of a second memory slot etc
Then in 2019, due to a slow start, pentax heavily started discounting KP which faster adoption rate. I bought my black one for 2019 summer holidays and I noticed in these forums that many customers did the same over last 2 years, taking advantage of offers in the 700-800 USD region. Large number of these clients, including myself, are so satisfied with their KP that they dont have K3iii in mind anymore...
I come from k-x and K5ii and KP is a net improvement and fulfills all my current needs on top of a likeable design. I would hesitate to buy a 2000 USD K3iii with high specs, but would gladly put at least half of that for a KPii.

My understanding of all of this now is that Pentax messed up with initial KP pricing and this "K3ii successor" storytelling. Would it have been introduced at 999USD and selling in the 700-800 early in its lifecycle, this very capable body could have been a tremendous success for Pentax...

you should save another $800 for K-new
I was waiting for K-new since 2016. I decided to buy my KP last year and am very satisfied ; since then K-new is not part of my plans anymore.

I am surprised by KP replacement. It fils well under Knew with attractive pricing. That being said a KP available in the 600-700 USD does not leave much room for a K70 replacement around 500 USD...

If new ML format it would be better to join L mount alliance rather than developing something new from scratch.
K02 would be a better idea

Maybe 1% of K1 purchasers have time to waste and wish to dive into this level of details.

I have an accelerator in KP and like the output very much. I do not care if signal processing supressed higher frequencies or whatever as long as images are at par.
