A K-3iii or a KPii--what's the real difference?
1

Asahi man wrote this line about possible Pentax evolution: "More a better K-P than a new high end like D500."

The question that raises in my mind is what real features here would differentiate?

IOW, suppose Pentax announces a KPii at CP+. Exactly what would people require to accept that as a worthwhile successor to the K-3? (Or in reverse, what specific characteristics or fetures was the original K-P missing that made K-3 owners not want to update?

For me, it was basically the lack of dual SD card slots and the undersized battery. But if Pentax intruduced a KPii that used the same battery as my K-3 and had two SD slots, then I believe I'd bite.
