Just received it yesterday. I swore the K-5 would be my last APS-C camera until I either went full frame or gave up on photography, but it turns out the K-3 has just enough improvements to make it worthwhile for me. Most notably with regards to auto-focus, manual focus, dual SD card slots, selectable low-pass filter and a few other things. Some minor annoyances too, some of my favourite shortcuts are gone in favour of supposedly more user-friendly alternatives, and my beloved ISO 80 is gone (no more expanded sensitivity range). For the most part, though, this camera makes shooting a whole lot more fun. This together with my K-5 makes a great combination.

I used the upcoming baby as self-justification for getting a new camera with better focusing abilities :D but I have no justification for getting the fancy schmancy silver one.

They're coming, they're coming!

I didn't have as much time as I wanted to shoot with the K-3 today, mostly just wandered around the back yard. These are by no means award-winners in any way, but they gave me a great opportunity to get to know my new camera.

Go Habs Go!

:~( [sound of head beating against a wall] I have to wait until next year for one of those but the sliver body looks so cool. Figured you get one. Keep 'em coming.

oh it's BEEEYOOOTEEEFUL! There's no doubt about that. Build quality is even a tiny notch better than my silver K-5. Also, the special leather strap is quite nice. Although I'm not a neck strap kinda guy, so it probably won't stay on there very long.

I look forward to pointing it at my new baby girl in a few weeks :D

I was going to say something about you having some kind of illness for buying another camera but I guess you need to be prepared for the arrival of your future offspring.

Congrats! :gift:
