Nice upgrade from the K-5

  • Excerpt: Use the camera for sports, scenery, family pics. Minor adjustments to the body make it more comfortable than the K-5. Slightly larger rear screen is also a welcome improvement. Overall, a bigger upgrade than going from the K-200 to the K-5. Shutter mechanism is quieter and seems smoother.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
  • Cons: Heavy

Exactly what I needed

  • Excerpt: I upgraded from a Pentax K110D. I looked into buying a Nikon D7200, but positive reviews, price and the fact that I have several Pentax lenses helped me decide. While my K110D served me well, this K-3 has so many great features. The K-3II was released right after I bought the K-3.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Slow focus in live view

  • Excerpt: The K3 follows Pentax tradition of high quality and thoughtful design. This is a very worthwhile upgrade for me from the K7, much improved chip at the 24mp sweet spot for APS-C. Solid, sturdy feel to body and controls.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

  • Excerpt: I've always loved Pentax but was disappointed here with the K-3. I process in Photoshop CC 2015 and all the images came out noisy. I contacted Pentax/Ricoh and was directed to use the Digital Camera's software that came with the camera.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO
