Same here i was expecting 12-24 to disappear to have rebranded 12-28 in the line up.
I wonder how this 11-18 will compare to sigma 8-16

If no K3 III, I would buy K1 or K1 II if there is any

If there is an announcement at CP+ 2018, it means body's availability maybe in May or June 2018. Almost one more year of waiting :(

Fully agree with that timeline, but we are already mid August.
I shoot for almost one year with my RX100 which gives excellent results but way too short in terms of range, needing this K3 III asap to get my lenses back!

What about K3 - III ?
I dont get why we dont have any color of that one, it starts becoming annoying for us potential buyers...

I bought an early production from september 2015, less than one year after I had the zoom issue at 180 mm.
Lens was replaced in November 2016 by a brand new one, I did not notice any zoom lock but I dont use it a lot either.

I was not with Pentax at this time and not into macro yet...
This commercial failure somehow explains the rarity of this lens today.
I hope Sigma acquires Pentax at some point so that we have access to the whole range of lenses eventually

I suppose this minor update is called K-p so already available...
I would buy a K3 ii in the mean time if it got a built in flash but wont because of that.
I have a 150-450 that I would like to use with a brand new body, waiting for one year already.

That is terrible news if correct.
K-1 is out for quite some time now, a part of resources has been allocated to K2 (?) since then I suppose... K-p propably sucked up some as well

What he probably wanted to underline is that K3 platform on which K3 ii is based is quite old now and a new APS-C flagship is highly needed.
KP is a nice to have camera but not the one we are waiting for. I doubt people can wait one more year whereas K3 ii is already out of stock here and there
Hopefully I have a RX100 I play a lot with (though zoom range is way too small) that eases my wait, but I need a new body this year...

Thread's title is "

"


Ending with a question mark I do not consider that as a crystal clear timeline...


We need some leaks asap!

I dont have too many resolution problems yet, a bit though. But I also find AF very useful. I would love to have many AF points and an easy quick selection. Needless to say my pentax body is not there yet, which is why I am looking forward to testing K3 iii when available...

I am in the exact same situation... Once I have a long macro I am pretty much set in terms of needs

I laughed when I read your post.
Agree with you about weather sealing, some AW finish like the one of 150-450 would be a great improvement
