a no-brainer upgrade

  • Excerpt: I have gone through a number of cameras but sort of locked onto the Pentax system a little over 10 years ago after getting my hands on a Pentax *ist DS. I then owned a Pentax K20D and recently got a K-3. There are a lot of positives and perhaps a few negatives with the Pentax system but I'm going to focus on the K-3 itself only. The K-3 is a very sturdy, superb-feeling camera.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD

The Best Pentax Yet!

  • Excerpt: I have the IstD, k20 and k30 but the K3 is truly amazing. I will use it for my fine art photography business however my first time using it was for shooting porsches on a race course. The 8 frames per second burst rate was super and enabled me to get some terrific shots. And, the color and exposure was excellent so I look forward to a long and successful time using this outstanding Pentax.
  • Pros: Easy Controls, Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Weather sealed

Pentax Wonder!

Natural Moments, B&H Photo
28 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I am a pro photographer using pentax K series cameras. Years ago I used the K10 and K20 but moved to the K5 and then the K3 as those came onto the scene. The K3 is the best camera yet! I use a mix of Pentax, Tamron, and Sigma lens. I shoot landscape, wildlife, portrait, and product. So as you can see the camera meets all my demands. I love it's capture in RAW and that was the final part that had sold me on Pentax years ago and it has been a good decision.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

Great camera, Awesome customer service!

  • Excerpt: This camera is absolutely great. It beats my wife's Canon EOS hands down for IQ, ease of use, reliability, and is just an overall joy to use. As an added bonus, Ricoh/Pentax customer support is simply great. I ordered a used K-3 from B&H, and when I received it, it was missing the bottom battery grip terminal cover. B&H was unable to help me get one.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
  • Cons: Short Battery Life
