Further Pentax KP Details Emerge
Further details of the mysterious Pentax KP DSLR which was recently registered have emerged over the weekend, we now know the following:
- The new camera will be officially unveiled on January 26th (26th in Japan, 25th in Europe and the Americas, the exact time of announcement will be 11pm CST / 5pm EST)
- The new camera is expected to start shipping by the end of February
- The Pentax KP is not a replacement for the K-3 II, it’s a brand new concept, with a very well-considered battery grip system
- Update – the exact translation from German is “the KP is more than a refinement of the K-3II“, this does not exclude that the KP could be the replacement for the K-3II
Its looking like this could be a new APS-C replacement for the K-3II, but really without further details it is impossible to do anything but speculate. It will be interesting to see how this one evolves, stay tuned!
