Now that I've bought a K-1 It's just been discontinued

Seems very odd discontinuing it before releasing a K-1ii
Word will just spread that it's no longer available.

That's the K-1 not K-3ii which is also no more and hasn't got a replacement.

Fear not, thatís an error spreading like fake news. Itís the K-01 thatís discontinued.

On the bright side, if no new models come out I won't have to update Lightroom

End of sale? Not end of production, that post is very ambiguous. Funny itís still available everywhere else, Ricoh UK has 10% off until end of March.

That sounds more likely.

It's a translate attempt so may be a bit off, but I suspect it will shortly be moved to discontinued status and the remaining stock will be sold through. Might be a chance of a bargain to be had in the coming months?

By all accounts the K-1 sold well, so one would expect a replacement to be announced soon.

It now sounds certain that a K-1 Mk2 wil be released.

It's a bit worrying that Amazon has NO Pentax DSLR's in their list of Top 100 UK sellers

The Facebook post from Pentax / Ricoh ČR about the K-1 being discontinued has apparently been taken down.

Personally I don't think Ricoh has the finance or capacity to produce a new FF and high end crop at the same time.

Maybe it will come left field and a new medium format is launched?

K-3ii down to £699 at SRS and K-1 £1799

Somethings going on are we about to see TWO new models

I might swap my new K-1 for the new one if it has Cat Detection AF and Twig Detection AF
