Two drawbacks
In reply to moimoi, Oct 10, 2013

While I think the K-3, at it's price range, really ups the bar for technology and features, I don't like the fixed LCD.  Secondly, I prefer using the viewfinder, and most OVF info displays are in those choppy little led like letters and symbols.  One of the reasons I chose Sony was I could actually easily read all of the displayed info in the EVF.  Perhaps Pentax's fixed LCD is there because you'd constantly be checking if to be able to read screen info.  As far as live view is concerned, the Pentax is an improvement, but again, with my Sony I just leave it on and don't have to be turning a switch or pressing a button to go back and forth.

Anyway, I hope Sony takes a cue from the new features on the K-3 in developing a successor to the A77.
