Flagship Pentax K DSLR In Development: Pentax K 2019

Pentax has announced development plans for the new flagship Pentax APS-C DSLR, and have shared these pictures of the camera, which show a top LCD screen, and rear joystick control. Due for release in 2020, there are no further details available, so we don't know how much the camera will cost, what it will be called, or any of the specifications. The camera is due to replace the Pentax K-3 Mark II, which we reviewed in 2015.

Any hope this thing will compete on autofocus, or just more of the same? Pentax last chance as I see it. Long time Pentax user, but really want something which can do low light and action AF.
