All very competitive FF milcs being now in the market, where do we expect Pentax New Flagship to be in?

It competes as a counterpoint to them, an old-school alternative with a refined optical viewfinder and an emphasis on handling and feel. Those seeking the latest tech need not apply.

What price point will it come in.. and on what basis will it compete..

No idea on the price, but it will complete by being unique, and for Pentax users to utilize their existing lens system. It's an upgrade for anyone still using a K-5, K-3 or KP, and a crop-sensor companion to a K-1.

The latter makes no sense.  Why do I need a crop sensor whet the K is just so good?

Would have to be more than that little effect to draw a K1 user into the orbit of this new camera
