Goodbye K-3 Hello K5II.

First of all i would like to thank my mother and father, no seriously as you all know i have recently got the K3, but after a week of use feel its not for me, as i shoot JPGs i am not liking in what i see regards to image noise, at 100% smudging of detail is clear to see, and not just my images with the camera.

Its a nice camera in many ways, but with hindsight i should and wished i had kept the K5II hence buying another. For me it comes down to IQ and noise, and looking at my images of the K5II are far better than any of my K-3. I know for some they love there K3 i wish you all well, shooting RAW probably is the best way to go here.

I dont want to get into any long drawn out debate, i have made my mind up and dont want this thread to turn sour and negative, if it does then i will speak with sir bazz the moderator to lock it.

I just felt i had to explain myself, as many good folk here have given me some good advice, after careful consideration and a heavy heart i feel i can no longer keep the K-3. Thanks to all your good wishes, i just look forward to getting my old friend back.
