Re: What does the Sony SLR community think of the Pentax K3?
In reply to moimoi, Oct 10, 2013

I'd say it looks like a solid camera with some nice features.  I like that Pentax does weather sealed bodies, and IQ I've seen from Pentax cameras has always been good.  I don't see any huge difference overall between any of the current crop of excellent cameras from Canon, Nikon, Sony, or Pentax in the DSLR/SLT/etc marketplace.

Personally, one thing I would find it hard to go without that I love about Sony's DSLRs and SLTs is the excellent, fast live view functionality, and the tilting LCDs.  Every time I do tripod long-exposure work, live view + tilt LCD make it such a pleasure and really sells itself.

But you're not going to get a bad camera nowadays, and the K3 looks like a nice new model for Pentax users or those interested in buying in to Pentax's system.
