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.

I was first believing introduction price would be in the 1400-1500 USD region but I am no longer optimistic. This Knew will offer relatively more than what K3 used to bring at its time in comparison with his peers.
Now I would bet on a 1600-1800 USD range. I am afraid it is already too expensive for many pentax users but all brands are increasing top gears prices so it is not like if churning was made any easier lately...

I am fairly aware that most corps dont give a damn but I bet things will change. Look at all the brands shaming we see these days with BLM wave.
Second hand is a trend that will last and Chinese products in general are not durable enough for that.

For a couple of years I try to change my purchasing habits, fighting made in china (or equivalent) as often as possible / as I could. This higher cost you underline has to be balanced with much higher durability.
It is not easy to be picky in this IT sector as most products are manufactured there or have subparts produced there.
2 recent purchases : electric bike, bought German product, and wireless loudspeakers, bought French HiFi. I am aware some bits here and there are probably from China but they wont have most part of my money
Same for a company I am an administrator of. I pushed and we stopped buying machines from China, though 3 times cheaper and since 2017 favor British and Italian gear instead. In terms of much higher reliability, lower maintenance, almost no downtime (less than 1 day per machine and per year) we didnt complain so far...

It has to start with our habits first, sometimes it is better not to buy at all than to buy from there.

I love pentax but entry level dslr have not a great lifespan, though they are not cheap.
My old k-x was not affected by any crazy mirror or solenoid problem, it just refused to turn on one day. When I asked a quotation for repair, the only option they had was an electronic card change for 250+ euros in the hope it would fix the problem on a 7yo - 23000 clicks body. That is when I decided to use a 2nd hand K5 ii instead.
Manufacturing in China is a cancer for many reasons, I hope corporations eventually understand it...

HD DA 55-300PLM + HD Pentax-DA 1.4x AW AF Rear Converter vs DFA 150-450

I loved my 150-450 but had to part ways with it. It is simply too big and heavy for a day of hiking or travels and I did not have time to use it specifically at what it is good at ; I loved its range and IQ but could not deal with what came along with it.
Problem I have now is that I am limited in range with my 55-300 (WR, not PLM) and was thinking about 1.4 TC to complement it. I know DA* 300 would be a better fit but I like flexibility of the zoom when travelling.

I doubt there are a lot of pentax customers for this kind of pricy lens.
150-450 seems to sell well for 2000 USD+ which is significant but still affordable. I own this zoom and I find it too heavy to carry it as often as possible or as often as I wish to. A 400 f4 should not be lighter and 3 times the price...

Interested in this 70-300. I own the OS release of Sigma but it is sometimes soft when lacking light, and my 55-300 is sharper but too short at 300...
