Pentax Kp dropped in price to sub USD 800 in a couple of years after it was introduced. I believe that Pentax sold a number of them at that price point. Under normal circumstances, we could expected a similar drop in K-3 iii price, making it more "accessible" to a wider Pentax audience.

The problem is the initial higher price may have already induced Pentax users to another system. So I do agree with zakaria about the initial pricing.

I think the lower prices and availability of Pentax cameras and lenses on eBay, already tells me that the migration away from Pentax is underway. K3-iii may be the last chance that Pentax has to staunch that flow.

That was me.

I have or have had a Ds, k100ds, K10d, k20d, k5iis, kp.  I will still use Pentax for some things but primarily shoot with a d7500 now.
