I'm surprised that no one has posted this yet. It's been on the Pentax Forums for about a week now.


Some folks are testing the K-3III. It's in Chinese, but it will give you an idea or what it can do.


It's looking It looks promising so far.


I've seen that but not much useful information on the camera, everything is in Chinese, including the camera menus. The main point is that many K-3 IIIs are circulating in the wild so the production must be already started.

In the comments, when asked on hybrid AF during Live view, the person who posted the video replies that LV AF is similar with that on the KP, while someone else replies that it has on-sensor PDAF, while not so fast as the Nikon D780 (fewer PDAF pixels). Honestly, I was not expecting or desiring the complications of on sensor PDAF in a DSLR and this is not in the released specs (contrast detection AF only, shown under Live view in the official specs). So we'll have to wait and see, nothing reliable.
