Posted yesterday on another forum... if that's true, the future offerings are VERY interesting:

"The K3 isn't looks like the pictures. It's a little bigger, and heavier than the K5.
The body will be the same as the FF Pentax in 2014.
The k3 grip is not the same as K7-K5 grip.
The new AF is incredibly better than K5.
Double Sd slot, and many more improvements.
Less than two weeks......"

It sounds like five years from now, 2012-2014 will be remembered as the time when the industry started transitioning to full frame in a big way.  If the K-3 really does have that dramatic an improvement in autofocus, and dual slots and the rest, it might be seen as Pentax's last really major crop-sensor upgrade.  There won't be that much more that future models can add within the segment.
