Ricoh is rumored to announce a new Pentax K-3 III DSLR camera soon and it is expected to be announced in September 2018 prior to Photokina.
The Pentax K–3 II is a high-end APS-C 24-megapixel DSLR, the last stop before you end up in full-frame sensor territory. The camera announced by Ricoh on April 22, 2015. It is differentiated from its predecessor by improbing a few important areas including optical image stabiliation (OIS) and tracking AF.
Generally Ricoh unveils the K-3 series in a two years gap. So if we don’t see an announcement in the first half of 2018, then Photokina in September, 2018 could be the ideal time for Pentax K-3 III announcement.
Pentax K-3 III coming for Photokina 2018 event?
According to recent reports, Pentax K-3 III announcement is scheduled for next year at Photokina 2018 event in September.
For now, there are no details leaked yet. So we can only guess about Pentax K-3 III specifications. The sure thing is that the flagship APS-c sensor camera has to improve upon the K-3II, K-70, and KP. So a big question would be if Ricoh will put 4K to this camera or not?
Pentax K-3 II can record full HD 1080p videos at 30fps. When we consider in todays world almost all cameras come with 4K then why would Pentax K-3 III not. The company might use the same sensor but we think the AF algorithm will be improved.
It is hard to say if the upcoming Pentax K-3 III will be a D500 killer. On the other hand we expect a brand new AF module and CPU for this shooter. Take it with a grain of salt and stay tuned with us for more information.
