    K-3 II has silver version for quite sometimes, but the replacement has not come yet. Now K-1 has silver version, so can we expect the replacement ?
    What pentax is going to do, is very mysterious for me.

      I don’t think Pentax will replace the K-1 before 2019. They said that, if I remember correctly. By the way the K-3 II’s replacement is late, but if it comes before xmas, and if it will be a great camera, a little late it’s not a deal.
      Sorry for my English.

        “Ricoh”, pronounced as “Rhee .. cough …” is the dictionary meaning of “always too little, always too late”.
        Sorry for my French.

          (my apologies if you have never seen the ricola cough drop commercials)

        2019 is an eternity with the D850 out now. There will be a D900 by then lol.

  • aaa

    I dont understand why pentax doesn’t put a joystick in its cameras…

    • TinusVerdino

      They may on the K-3 II successor. The K-1 isn’t sports oriented. D810 doesn’t have a joystick.

    • ZMWT

      Before you put a joystick in a camera, you must have a few more AF points than the K-1 or K-3 offer; say, 120 more AF points, and some serious AF processing speed, say, thrice the speed of current K-1 and K-3.

      • aaa

        Cameras have far less AF points than Pentax K1 have joysticks. I am not sure what do you mean….
