Excerpt: I had been using my Pentax K10D for the past seven years, so this was a significant upgrade for me to move up to the K3 body. Having made a jump of about five versions, I had to read the instruction manual to acquaint myself with the many new features that the K3 offers.
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...
Excerpt: The K-3 is my upgrade after almost 10 years using the Pentax K10-D. It has several new features including multiple User settings, Live View, much higher ISO options, and yet is compatible with all my Pentax lenses and my infrared remote.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I am a two system shooter: Canon and Pentax. Pentax is my first love, it has a great history, great ergonomics, and has great value for the price. Especially now, the price of the K3 has dropped to a point where if you shoot pentax, it's worth considering selling your old bodies and buying the K3.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance
Excerpt: Wanted the latest version of the K series digital SLR - camera is awesome - night and day from the K10D, it took me a long time to understand all fo the features on the older camera, the new one allowed me to walk right in and use it - only had to look up what the new features are.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality
Excerpt: Use the camera for trips and family. Love Pentax controls, simple, straight forward and intuitive. Pictures are wonderful, love the detail. Adorama makes it simple, good price, great customer service.
