Hands-on with new Pentax KP

Ricoh has taken the wraps off it's newest DSLR, the APS-C format KP. Resembling a mini Pentax K-1, and inheriting some of the same features, the KP is a more compact, modernized version of the K-3 II.

Its price and all we've been told point to it being an K-3 successor but the company says it doesn't replace it. Whether this is to avoid devaluing remaining K-3 II stocks or because it hopes to introduce a higher-end sister model is unclear.

We got our hands on a pre-production sample recently, and we've prepared a quick product tour.
