Someone emailed me the link of this post in a Chinese Pentax forum, the samples look legitimate (it seems to be). Is the Mark III going to launch in 2019?

Japanese DSLR Sale Results in 2018

Number of Pentax DSLR bodies sold in the Japanese home market in 2018 was in a 3.1% share. Compared to the previous years' results (4.2% in 2017, 4.8% in 2016, 6.7% in 2015 for Pentax), this down trend should continue. :-(

PDN Ranked DR of 20 Cameras, K-1 II Ranked #9
