There's something in the pipeline. CP+ isn't the only big fare and photokina is in September. A MF with a 100MP is rumored for longer now and we will see if there's some news at cp+ and a facelift to the K-3 II isn't a big deal.

The noise-reduction-unit that is already used in the K70 and KP will improve the picture quality typical at a range of ISO 200-800. That is a nice-to-have and we'll see what they changed at the Pixel-Shift-function. Most K-1 owner's would not upgrade, but it's a nice step into future if the price will remain almost identical.

The noise-reduction-unit from the K-70 / KP improves the quality between ISO 200-800. The new K-1 II is a nice facelift but i agree that there is no reason for K-1 users to upgrade.

K-1 Mark II!

That's possible and i'm sure that the K-3 II is also dicontinued because the used sensor is no longer produced. I wouldn't be surprised if the K-1's sensor would be replaced by the 42 MP sensor from Sony. No big deal but a facelift.

Pentax KP Officially Announced, New Forum!

But this is a wrong information. Whatever metal they used but only parts of the case are metal. The top-cover for example is simple plastic.
This is not a fully metal-covered body.

they say parts are alloy body, the top cover is ordinary plastic. This is no longer a full metal body and no one confirmed that it is magnesium. It could be Alumnium because it's a way cheaper.

It makes sense. Pentax doesn't care for APS-C anymore. This format is no longer interesting to them and will provide only the entry level with cheap and overpriced plastics as you can see now.

Get a K-3II for actual 949€ including the 50mm/1.8 and sell the 50mm for 50€ and you'll get a far better package for far less money than the KP with a way better build quality.
The difference between the 3-axle and 5-axle SR and this little more of dynamic etc. isn't worth the price difference in real use.

This KP is a total mess. The build quality is poor entry level but the price is "Pro". The design is poor, this is neither Retro nor K-Style and Pentax did everything to save money at this body.
Who should buy this if you can get a 80D for example for far less money but with a far better AF-System and who should buy this if you can get a FF D610 for the same price-tag ?

Got you, there is no need of substantial Information. Go on with jokes, rumors and a nonsense talk of the labeling.

I don't care about the name. None of us can give a proven Statement of naming. It could be the "KP" a "K-Pro" a "M-E" or whatever.
More interesting to me are the tech specs. It is a new 28MP BSI Sensor if my source is right, but actually it is just a rumor and nothing offical ;)

So please explain why should Pentax announce the new camera 1st of march ? The CP+ is end of february and without any doubt they will never miss that date to announce a new camera a week after the most important fair of cameras.

this talk about the translation is very funny. @mistral75 Only mee did the interpretation to "they". She said, that the new design, especially that of the battery-grip is very good in her opinion.

@mee

because these are two different things.
The information of the introduction is coming from from a high valuable source that i trust. The design is different to the K-3 especially the battery-grip system.

@steve

the source is german.

I've got some news not rumors:

The new Pentax will be introduced at the 26th of January and it's a complete new design that differs from the K-3.

Fuji did the right with their Pro Lenses. There is no compromise, buy it or leave it and that's the right solution in this time. The time everyone wanted "a big DSLR" is over and no one cares anymore for cheap plastic fantastic. Quality is the answer to the market and i hope that Pentax is ready for this, because they are the only ones who are playing on three different systems (APS-C , FF and Medium Format) and they have to deliver !

And I'm waiting for the replacement of the K-3 / II. Something with the smooth shutter of the 645Z/K1, max. 28/30 MPix without AA , FlipScreen and a simple Battery Slot that contains simple AA batteries instead of special Batteries.

That's really sad. You did so much rumors that the AF will be so fantastic and superior and now you're telling us that it cannot compete even with Nikon. After realizing that the new 35mm has just the old-fashioned D810 sensor and not the modern BSI-generation i really expected that Pentax will make a lot of improvements at the AF-system like focus-tracking and eye-detection that's imo state-of-the-art at a pro-system and now you tell us that it even cannot compete with an ordinary Nikon ?
Go on with your rumors, but don't expect that i trust even one more word :eek:
