OK so Pentax is buying some new sensors - that should not be unexpected.

But what is the source of: "A new APSC with 26mp in 2020 not a K3 replacement that camera is history this will be NEW flagship" in the opening post? Those bold declarations are what many Pentaxians might like to hear, but they are not stated in the Pentax Rumors link.

Without any inside info, a 26MP sensor is likely - as that's a readily available, not too new (read: expensive) sensor. I don't know if I should trust Pentax Rumors' rumor, without a clue about who the source is (or how trustworthy).

As for the camera itself, Ricoh Imaging said they're working on one.
