K5-II - Is that it??
Sep 11, 2012

Is the K5-II/IIs all we are going to see as far as a flagship Pentax DSLR is concerned for the next 12-24 months?

Okay so the AF issue may have been fixed though one could argue it should have been better on the K5 MK1 anyway.

But what about the archaic and flaky flash system, limited focus points, lack of focus peaking, no native tethering, no articulated LCD, still no manual video etc??? It seems there's nothing much new here and nothing much very compelling for existing K5 owners apart from a $1500 upgrade for the AF.

One would would expect another DSLR is/should be lurking around the corner that will address all this.

Is there?

I'm about to retire my K7 and relegate my K5 for use as my backup cam so where is the so called 'K3'?
