lacikuss: I hope the best for this camera, now is this the FF Pentax they promised 15 years ago? BTW it looks like a Nikon indeed.

No, it's not. It's just another variant to their existing K-3, an APS-C type. The Full Frame model is said to be before the end of this year.

winkalman: This camera may be nearly unbeatable for backpackers and landscape photographers. Weather sealed, GPS, multi-shot image quality should at least match (and quite possibly exceed) the D800e, small (by DSLR standards), and relatively affordable. They need to get these things into REI or some other premium sporting goods store.

That's true and brilliant idea to stock this at REI.

Peter CS: Great, new camera for Pentax fans, like myself! Many cool and new features! Hopefully this will match the raw sensor performance of the Nikon d7100/d7200. However, note to Pentax (and also a note to Fuji, Nikon, Canon, Tokina, and Tamron) - if you want to capture the landscape photographer market, you need to produce a weather-sealed ultra-wide zoom lens for DX photographers!!! So far, only Canon FX and Nikon FX have addressed this market niche with well-sealed zoom lenses! Relative to Pentax - they have had and relied a tired, non-sealed, and outdated 12-24mm for way too long!!! Also, I am not willing to try to change various prime lenses under less-than-ideal weather conditions, no matter how good the resolution and other parameters! Would have gladly bought the new, Tokina 12-20mm f2.8 but again, no weather-sealing. It seems that the FX lens lines from all manufacturers are an afterthought at best...

If you look at Pentax new lens roafmap, there is an upcoming ultra wide lens that looks like for the new Full Frame. Not sure the size yet, maybe 12-24 or 15-30.
