Re: K-3 ...from whence this rumour came ..

Neither but something in between; as I said, there was a rumor about Pentax having image quality (cross talk) issues with the sensor which was supposed to go in the K-3, earlier this year. Lenses like the FA Limiteds performed poorly - though I don't know what this meant, it was unacceptable for Pentax.

It's plausible, because the "old" 24MP APS-C sensors have issues. It would be even more plausible, if Pentax will announce something on 7-8th October.


BTW - we have a telecom company, called Ericsson, in Sweden. It is famous for "never being first". One example - when everyone else had failed at making a good computer controlled telephone exchange, they made one that actually worked.

I had few Ericsson phones, replaced with Sony Ericsson...

Now, Ericsson is the last one standing among the old telecom companies. Its only competitor being Huawei.

What can be learned by this?

Nothing really?

But in our case, if the rumor is correct, probably they made the right decision to avoid launching a product with image quality issues. My feeling is this delay won't harm them, in the long run.
