If the k3 uses the Sony 24mp sensor then in low light it will be much worse than the k5 over ISO 400. Take a look at the D3200 which has just been reviewed and that should give you a good indication of where things stand. I am sure there will be other improvements in the camera but low light performance will not be one of them if they use the 24mp sensor. You will get more detail at low ISO and stunning image quality but by 400 that detailed will be smeared away by noise reduction. Even blue skies at 200 may be a problem noise wise if printed largely for example.
