A wonderful DSLR at a great price point

  • Excerpt: I purchased this camera to replace a Pentax K-r as I had begun to outgrow it. The K-3 is a huge upgrade as far as I am concerned: * Better sensor and double the resolution * More flexible exposure modes * HDR for RAW images * Optional AA simulation, really sharp imagfes when you don't need it.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

  • Summary: This camera will just about do everything you could possibly ask of it. I am a rookie photog but this camera has made my pics look so good. Lots of things to learn but just spending time out in the field with it makes for much better pics and maybe even more questions but that's the fun of...

  • Excerpt: I waited and saved to be able to purchase this camera. It fits my hands and the controls are accessible. I am working and learning all about it. I really like that my weather resistant Pentax lenses work. I am even able to use my M42 screw mount Pentax lenses.

  • Excerpt: I picked up the K3 and grip a few weeks ago now and put off saying much until I'd given it a good shake down....... Unfortunately it was meant to be as part of a bundle with FLU card and latest AF series flash, the body and grip arrived several days later but the FLU card only arrived a few days ago...

I Love my K-3

TR, B&H Photo
27 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I have had Pentax SLRs and DSLRs cameras for almost 30 years. I became frustrated with my KD 10 but found that my frustration is now gone as the K-3 fixed it! The K-3 has great light sensitivity and it's so much easier to change the ISO settings (Plus a much larger range to choose from!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

Amazing camera at ANY price

Eric R., B&H Photo
13 April 2015
  • Excerpt: My primary use for the K-3 is macro photography. My K-50 does a great job in this area, but the added resolution with the K-3's larger sensor gives me a huge advantage for larger prints (beyond 16x20), and more importantly, when I want to crop down to the smallest of details.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Reasonable Cost
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

I will take this camera to my grave.

Bobby Tjaden, Amazon
8 April 2015
  • Summary: My second pentax body with this lens since Ricoh took over. Many features and intuitive placement of buttons. Very rugged design and can withstand anything I've been able to throw at it. I've taken this camera backpacking in Yosemite, off road rally racing and use it for parties and portraits.
