That would be a violation of forum rules making it possible to ban someone at least once, possible more than once at the same time.

I don't want to see the demise of Nikon. That said, I don't get broken up over a factory closing in China.

You forgot the possibility of self-medicating which is also neither mutually exclusive nor codependent.

K-3II or KP which one????

It generally has to do with the features the "flag ship" has compared to its contemporary lineup. In the case of Pentax, the magnesium alloy body is one thing. There used to be greater separation. All models are now sealed, but that wasn't always the case. There was also a time when the flagship had a real prism and the siblings had mirrors but that isn't the case anymore either. The flagship usually has an optional grip. That generally still holds true. If you go back the past 12 years, you will see these things are consistent. The lesser models have acquired the real prism and seals but not the magnesium body or grip. Front and rear dials was also a feature that eventually spread from flagship models to lesser models.

I'd definitely go with silver if I got a KP to match my K.

Yeah it seems that way, but the K3 came out late 2013 after the K-5 ii. It seems that the K-1 is currently treated as the flagship and the KP the top aps-c.

The magnesium alloy body has always been a flagship feature. Have you looked at all the previous "flagship" bodies? Plus, the K-3 ii is 2 years old and relies on a non-existent Flu Card for wifi. Furthermore, look at the post I made previous to this one (#29) regarding specs and answer your own question from that. There is no need for the tone in this thread. I have just expressed my observations.

Why do you think another aps-c body is coming out at a higher price point than the KP?

I agree. There are certain things at this price point the bothers me about the KP. One is the missing gps even though some descriptions claim it has it such as BH (unless they have edited it since last week). The other is the lower life listed on the shutter as well as the 7 fps instead of the 8.3.

I will give you two reasons the first that I have stated already but you have ignored. #1) It has a magnesium alloy body which has historically been reserved for the flagship aps-c bodies. #2) the price point.

In the past including wiht the K-3 II, they never had a full frame in the line up. It would depend on which 35mm dSLR is considered the flagship I suppose at this point.

The KP has the magnesium allowy body and so I don't believe its a replacement for the KS2. It is the replacement for the K3ii. Pentax hasn't always had the same number of bodies out but they have been consistent with at least 2 apc bodies.
