    Does it support two SD cards?
    Does it support Astrotracer?
    Is there a high-end grip with dual batteries?
    Does the FPS increase with the addition of a grip?

    • Imp

      This is not the K-3 II successor. The grip is just a grip. There will be a higher specced aps-c camera according to asahi-man

    • Richard Jackson

      Does the SR work in video mode?
      Does the Focus Peaking work in video mode?
      Is it a touchscreen?
      Is the video bit rate any higher than their now standard 2012 offering?

      • Imp

        Haha, i doubt it. I’ll stick with my K-30 until they update the video!

  • waterengineer

    I’ll stick with the D500 for my crop sensor camera. Thanks.

    • Aekn

      Really? If you’re in the demographic for a D500, you were actually considering this as an alternative? You must not really need the features (or lenses) of the D500 then.

      • waterengineer

        Yes, really and yes I am and yes I do. Your post drives home my point. This camera offers nothing.

        • Aekn

          Best APS-C camera ever and you were already contemplating an alternative? My point is I doubt you’ve outgrown your D500. It’s a phenomenal camera.

        • TinusVerdino

          It’s an empty shell,a paper weight the specs are lies

          • Zos Xavius

            you sure about that?? 🙂

          • TinusVerdino

            Pentax doesn’t even exist. I’ve ordered their web page taken down!

          • BP2012

            Doomsday is coming!!!

  • PiDicus Rex

    “KP” must stand for “K-mount Photos Priority”

    No HDMI or Headphone out,…. No Sale till they get the video features up to spec.

    • Richard Jackson

      Amen to that brother!

      Sitting on my current Pentax DSLR bodies until they offer me something improved in the video capabilities.

      Video wise they’re still pushing out the lacklustre K-30/K-01 specs from 2012, and it’s now looking ridiculous.

      At least give back the sensor stabilisation during video recording, that the k-5 / k-7 already had!?!

      • Imp

        Same!

      • PiDicus Rex

        Yuuuuup.
        I know a store, local to me, still has K-5’s new in boxes on the shelf.
        At AU$700, I’m very tempted, much more then for any new model.
        If I could just find that tute on how to manually control aperture during video on the K-5,…..

    • TinusVerdino

      Maybe a KS for Speed will follow.

      • PiDicus Rex

        Maybe the rumored Mirroless will be a “KV” 🙂

    It’s not anything to impress but the deciding factor will most likely be the image quality. I am not expecting any real improvements except in noise control so that still leaves the trademark Pentax image softness which in the end might not make the KP any different than the K-70 with a tweaked K-3 AF. I certainly hope this is not the successor to the K-3ii. Let’s all hope the KP is better than expected.

  • AYWY

    I like the weight.
