Better Video and jpeg quality

Honestly I'm satisfied by the performance of my KP. If there is something I would really like improved, it's definitely video (focus peaking during capture, some LOG mode, better codec, mic input) and also I think there is room for improvement in jpeg quality compared to Olympus, Panasonic, Fuji etc.

I always wondered why they won't copy the jpeg settings from Ricoh GR and make them available in Pentax bodies, the GR has great jpeg output.

I'm afraid it's not going to happen though. Judging from the videos and press releases, it's going to have a newer sensor, better OVF, some AF improvement and a joystick. For me personally, that would be too little to upgrade, although the camera is probably marketed for people who still shoot K3ii and didn't like the KP. Oh well..
