The examples to use are:

- Nikon D500 - $2000 MSRP

- Fujifilm X-T4 - $1700 MSRP

- Olympus E-M1iii - $1800 MSRP.

That is, the latest "cropped flagship" cameras.

Last check on B&H USA website Nikon D500 body $1496.95 US in stock.....

I did write MSRP, did I?

As you can see, neither Fujifilm nor the Olympus attempted to price-match the heavily discounted D500's street price with their MSRPs.

I guess the D500 got cheaper than MSRP because well, it sold like pancakes.

I was interested in reading that old review of D500: https://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d500.html

No doubt there are a lot of things similar between D500 and K3III. Some are (or seem) better on D500 (flip screen, AF ?, ISO 50), some seem like Pentax fixing usability issues of original D500 (user modes, weighted highlights metering, smart function+user AF), and then you have Pentax usual nice features (sensor shift related). I think if they could improve AF subject detection, nobody would say it's that much overpriced for a "D500 mark ii" that would include IBIS.
