One of the rumored K-3 announcements will actually happen.

Dont knwo about secs though, just that it will, as usual, be called too little too late and the end of Pentax.

Unless it's a *substantial* upgrade, I would rather it come later. Pentax/Ricoh needs to make a strong case for APS-C in the next generation, with the latest Micro4/3 sensors getting closer to the last generation of APS-C imagers. The successor to the K-5 needs to have as big of a jump in image quality that the K-5 did over the K-20/K-7. The Nikon D7100 wasn't a big enough jump, IMO; I hope Pentax can top them. And if they do, they will sell lots of cameras. If they don't, then it will be just another incremental upgrade and they will only maintain but not grow market share.
