According to an interview at CP+ posted on the US forum the K3 successor won't be available until 2020.

Apologies, that perhaps didn't come out right (I'm reading their thread and mentioned it over here).

Kimio Tanaka was interviewing Ricoh product planners at CP+, one of the questions was regarding K3ii successor. The reply I gave above (re available in 2020) is from one of his tweets.

Tweets about interviews??? Last time I read a Ricoh/Pentax 'interview' on there it gave away very little indeed and they asked very silly questions. Perhaps they are waiting on the zero tariffs agreed with Europe. Fine if you live in Europe of course

You'll love this Google translate from Japanese Algi...(I found it via link on Pentax Rumors)

The release of PENTAX K-3 II successor is likely to be next year
Photographer Ms. Nobuo Tanaka tweets some information on the Pentax machine such as K-3 II successor and KP custom.
Nobuo Tanaka @ thisistanaka

About the "succeeding model" of K - 3 II, I felt quite a bit but the guard of the opponent was hard. The release is expected to be next year, a nuance that it is a camera that you can expect. Since Q & A did not have questions of 645 or Q, the person in charge was "HOT".
Although it is a KP custom model that was "reference exhibition", it seems there is "selling money" with Nan (unexpected). I did not clearly say "While listening to your opinion", but I am not sure how to sell it in terms of its shape (limited or ordered) but I am planning to sell it this year.


Since the standard zoom of the new DA was posted on the lens mount map of the K mount, I would like to expect the APS-C's new aircraft, but the successor to the K-3 II will take a little more time. Before that, KP's custom model seems to be released.

There's an awful lot of living to be done between now and next year and just as much photography to enjoy as well.

What will be will be! But for now, enjoy and make the most of what you have.

I read more on custom KP ideas. No new APS-C this CP+ then...

Pentax KP Factory Custom
Ricoh also has an extensive range of Pentax cameras and lenses on show. Part of this display was devoted to custom versions of the KP DSLR. This goes far beyond the custom color combinations that were made available for earlier Pentax DSLRs. The KP Custom concept includes add-on grips made from a variety of materials, including exotic woods used for traditional steering wheels. There's also an additional, cosmetic top cover that mounts over the viewfinder prism. Finally, the custom version sees the lens mount coated with 'DLC,' a super-hard, 'diamond-like carbon' coating developed in conjunction with watchmaker Seiko, that makes mounting lenses smoother.

The KP Custom will initially only be available in Japan but Ricoh said they would consider extending it to other markets if there was sufficient customer interest both at the show and online.

I bought the K3II late on cheaply. I have all the lenses I need for now. Let's hope there is something new APS_C coming.

Ho Hum.
It's no wonder the market share is minute and shrinking daily.

No idea what I am going to do. Maybe a change of brand is due after all. Or a set of stick on lenses for the phone.

I am afraid YOU are not the sort of poster that Pentax want on a thread discussing the K-P Custom.


It could be a whole new problem after the K30/50/70 aperture block issue.

Snow covered mountains? In the Netherlands? About as likely as a new Pentax.
