The Pentax K-3 is the full frame magical unicorn for Pentax shooters. This camera has been in the rumor mill for longer than Pentax shooters care to admit. However, that magical full frame unicorn may be just around the corner.

Rice High managed to capture a screenshot of the Pentax K-3 category appearing one the official Pentax Photo Gallery Japanese website.

It looks like we could see the fabled full frame shooter from Pentax this year. If so, I would certainly expect to see it prior to PhotoPlus 2013 next month.

Stay tuned Pentax shooters.

Uh, considering it is classed in the same box as the K-5, it seems much more likely that this is not a FF but rather a 24mp APS-C refresh of the K-5.

You know, just like has been rumored for the past year.

The FF will arrive, same time but next year if everything falls into places. The K3 is just an update.

The K-3 is another refresh of the K-5 II which was a minor refresh of the K-5 which was a refresh of the K-7 (yawn!). Hopefully the FF DSLR is not too far away? Rumour has it this will be an ‘A’ series camera and not a ‘K-1′ etc..
