Hello Sony SLR community,

Alright, I am not sure about you, but I found the new Pentax K3 to be very appealing. At least on the paper, it is the best APS-C camera.

It has (almost) everything to dream of, good MP count, built-in IS sensor (newer generation), no AA filter, but with revolutionary technology mimicking the AA filter while shooting subjects prone to Moire (e.g., clothing), new AF system (with 25 crossed-type points), superb ergonomics, focus peaking, 8.3 fps with good buffer (23 images in raw, which is not too shabby), etc.

The K3 looks like a fantastic camera but I have too much invested in the A mount to contemplate changing systems. It isn't like the K3 makes my cameras obsolete or is a huge leap forward. My Sony system is great in it's own right and I'm satisfied with what I have.

Look at the picture, not the pixels
Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
