Great Camera!

  • Excerpt: I love photography but have never been able to wrap my mind around all the settings and technical end of taking good pictures. I wanted a camera that took great pictures without having to understand every function on the camera. I found it with the K3. The main reason I bought this camera was to take photos of my girls playing softball. I wanted something fast and crisp. I bought a 200mm lens and a 300mm lens and have been so happy with it.
  • Pros: 2 Memory Card, Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Video And Still Pictures

Very good so far

Birder, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am hard on my gear. Until the Pentax K-3. I have given the Pentax line a short shirt. I did not recommend it. After spending some quality time with the K-3 I have done a 180 degree turn. It is a feature rich and enjoyable experience. Very well laid out. And most of all. IT WORKS. The AF has been so dramatically improved it makes it a pleasure to use. The sensor performance is very very good. Easily outclassing my Canon 7D.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Quiet
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

AN EXCELLENT CAMERA, BUT WITH SOME SERIOUS TRADE OFFS IN PERFORMANCE

G.M., Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: ***Please note, I turn off JPEG Noise Reduction on my cameras. Noise reduction (NR) can smear images as opposed to helping them when the option to fix noise in post production tools exist that do a better job. All comparisons between cameras in JPEG are done as such to get a better idea of sharpness provided by each camera. By turning off Noise Reduction I also get a better sense of what the JPEG engine is doing in the camera.
