Excerpt: My favorite uses of cameras is to take railfan pictures of train action and of family gatherings and vacations. I have recently made some fine images of the recent snowstorm results with this body and a Pentax lens I already own. In making test images on a tripod, I found it handy to view the proposed images on the screen instead of through the viewfinder. I look forward to more good Pentax enjoyment.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Lcd Preview Of Image
Summary: I love this camera pictures are sharp and professional quality. Highly recommend for every kind of shooting like portraits, sport, wild life ,landscape, and modeling. It's just and all around camera and true sleeper. I'm glad I did my research before buying a canon or nikon.
Summary: I am overwhelmingly happy with the camera! The package is nice. I appreciate the different lenses the kit came with. The tripods are not very sturdy so I will purchase better ones. The kit came with a 64 GB card and three rechargeable batteries, as well as the battery charger. It is a good kit and I feel it was a good value.
Excerpt: Upgraded from an older Pentax body to this recently and am very glad I did. The body feels solid in your hand and with its well-insulated and sealed design, I did not hesitate to take it to shoots at the beach. In addition to the obvious improvements in Auto-focus, image sensors and output quality, I particularly like the LCD interface and the ease of navigation.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Video Support, Large Clear LCD, Quick Startup Time, Usb 30 Support, Wireless Usb 30
Excerpt: I'm mainly a nature and landscape still shooter. I loved my K-5, but the K-3 puts it in the shade for sharpness and detail. I didn't know what I was missing, and I frankly doubt that an extra 8 MP on top of the K-5's 16 would make a very big difference by itself. But that plus shedding the anti-aliasing filter makes the K-3 not just better but superlative.
Pros: Compact, Configurable Dual Memory Cards, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Ergonomics, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Weatherproofing
Excerpt: I use this primarily with the 300mm f/4 lens. It's a very solid camera - you can feel the quality of the camera as you hold it and work with the controls. The sensor image stabilization is helpful when handholding the camera. One tip - if using the camera on a tripod, the 2-sec self timer give an automatic mirror-up (handy for reducing vibrations that would degrade image quality. The 12-sec setting does not.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Quiet
Excerpt: Purchased as an upgrade to my trusty K10D, the K3 provides nearly 2.5 times the megapixels, substantially broader ISO range, faster burst shooting and a larger buffer, lens front/back focusing adjustment, plus DSLR movie capability as its major improvements. All this for nearly the same price paid with B&H for the K10D back in 2007!
