Pentax K-3 Mark III

RICOH COMPANY, LTD. and RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. have been developing a new PENTAX K-series digital SLR camera, which will be positioned as the flagship model of the APS-C-format SLR lineup.
Currently in development, the new camera now has its official name: the PENTAX K-3 Mark III. Designed to be a camera embodying The Five Principles of PENTAX (described in the PENTAX STATEMENT* featured on the RICOH IMAGING official website), it will incorporate an array of functions and features to showcase the significance of SLR photography, and also to optimize the joy of picture-taking for those photographers who regard photography as their lifetime passion.
The product prototype was exhibited last year at the PENTAX Meeting 100th Anniversary Special fan event. At the event, we announced that it would be launched by the end of 2020 -- and it is now in the final stage of development. Once development is complete, we will then begin streamlining the camera's production system. It will take a bit more time for all this to happen, so we appreciate your patience as we give you an overview of the product, as below. We'll provide you with more specific product information, such as the timing of the official product announcement and the scheduled market launch date, as soon as they are finalized.
Also, we would like you to visit our RICOH IMAGING website for videos giving more information on the new PENTAX APS-C-format digital SLR flagship, and to get ready for the arrival of the camera that we expect to set new standards for the future of SLR photography.
