Any credible rumours on K-r replacement?
Apr 4, 2011

I know the K-r model has quite a bit of life in it yet but the sensor has been through a couple of cycles and DPReview seems to think that is the weak point in a very nicely rounded upper entry level camera (mind you IMO the images compare very well against the D3100 except a little bit of resolution). K-x & K-r images I have seen are great and as is often the case with Pentax the little guys punch above their weight in terms of value for money.

My brother in law is trying to decide whether to buy the K-r (amazingly cheap) or hang out 6 months (?) for the replacement which at worst should have the next generation sensor and improve on the movie mode operations

Any known or speculated info out there?

Regards,
