Pentax is expected to announce their new K-3 II DSLR tomorrow, but the surprise has already been spoiled as the specs leaked online ahead of the announcement.
The specs indicate quite a nice upgrade over the current Pentax K-3 model, including a 24MP sensor, 25 cross-type AF points, and dual SD slots. Overall, it looks like a nice addition to the Pentax system. Full leaked specs below:

It is, of course, worth noting that these are just rumored specs. While they have been portrayed as leaks, it is very possible someone just made them up. That said, in most recent cases, these kinds of leaks have been fairly accurate and true – so I see no reason to doubt this one. Still – don’t go selling your entire Pentax kit in preparation for this announcement.
We should know more tomorrow about the K-3 II and its capabilities, pricing, and availability. So stay tuned and we will update you as soon as the official announcement hits the web.
