So according to the interview with Pentax in Tokyo there is a replacement for the k3ii in development
So that is great news
Oh and it's not the kp

I think it's going to be sometime next year before we see the K3II replacement.

2 things will happen when it comes out....

1) people will complain Pentax are only playing catch up

2) people will start speculating on K3iv

I will hope they bring out a camera so similar to the K3 that Ricoh will offer an upgrade for K3/K3ii for 450.

We may be seeing the consequences of a relatively small company with a fairly wide range of products. GR, APS-C, FF, MF and theta etc.

I've just worn the shutter out on my K3 and have had to invest in a K3II so I don't mind having to wait a few months for the replacement.... give me time to save a few pennies.

I hope the replacement is worth waiting for, better AF_C is all I'm hoping for really, slightly better high ISO would be nice too, I'm quite happy with everything else on the K3II.

No idea, I think it will have been over 200000 I do a lot of sports photography and can take 600 photos during 1 game.
I'd had the k3 from when it was first released so it didn't owe me anything.
