For the good of all, I threatened a couple of months ago to buy a Pentax KP, believing that, as with washing a car, the rain would come and a new APS-C body would soon be released because I had bought the KP. I did not buy it, but I find that a brick-and-mortar store has one available today in stock. Should I buy this camera? Will the magnificent new APS-C flagship appeared tomorrow if I do? It's a horrible responsibility.

O.K., what is wrong with your K3? ... Because KP is not a significant improvement from K3.

I have the K-3, and it's an outstanding camera still. BUT... I did buy a KP, and I would say it is a significant improvement for me. I find that I don't really use dual card slots, and I never used the top screen. I do like the longer anticipated shutter life and longer battery life of the K-3, but for me, the KP is a definite improvement because:

  • I like the lighter weight and slightly smaller size
  • I love the tiltable rear screen
  • I like the extra dial on top
  • It does much better in low light conditions.
