Currently nearly all the development power is going into K fullframe SLR.

Body and lens development,very interesting and in 2 classes.

But, SLR!!

Best regards

Translation: anybody hoping for a K-3 II successor, don't, you got your KP, that should be enough for you. No more "flagship" APS-C body, we are going all FF.

That is not a translation. That is you expressing your own thoughts.

OTOH Ricoh Imaging said they're working on an APS-C flaghip... how, whom should I believe?

"Currently nearly all the development power is going into K fullframe SLR.

Are you saying Asahi Man is not to be believed?

Asahi man doesn't say anything about 'no more "flagship APS-C". I believe him (even though he's often cryptic), and I believe Ricoh.

I don't remember Pentax's exact wording on that statement. Did they say they were actually working on it, or simply investigating it?

I would rather not see too much behind the exact wording - at best what we have is a Japanese to English translation. But here are some examples:

"DE: So you are actively developing a new APS-C flagship.

TA: Yes."

"For the flagship APS-C model, we have just started to develop that."

That was at CP+ 2018. One year before:

"A successor to the K-3 II is being researched."

Source: various interviews.
