As every Pentaxian would know, the 20th Million Pentax camera celebration was held last week at the plant here in the Phils. So far, our local insider gave us a teaser of what could be a possible production ready K3

-It has 20 mega pixels with the IQ of the 645D, did not mention sensor size but was told it was more on the programming to get that IQ
-Dual card slots
-There is a Ricoh badge at the back?

I know it is a bit vague like what I posted before but he did got it right that Pentax will release 2 16mp dslr bodies with a K5ish name wc was the K50 and K500.

20 MP and the IQ of 645D ?

How ?

I don't know how to explain it since I was not there, I'll just post what he posted:

"according to them its not the sensor. its the program. the difference of sensor size only applies on the pixels. 2mp image from apsc pixellates while in midframe does not."
So I'm guessing that it has something to do with photosites? Haha! I'm just a humble hobbyist
