When you were one of the only people having a problem, people were not too thrilled about claims that the K-3 was a bad camera... That was really the only problem.

I would do a complete factory reset and start over. Turn the HIgh ISO noise Reduction off and turn the AFA to AF-s and see where your at.

I bet your photos improve dramatically.

No, they won't. Here's a sample.

I've turned High ISO Noise Reduction to Auto. I've turned Slow Shutter Speed Noise Reduction to Auto. I never have my camera set to AF-A. I've set my camera to the Custom Image settings suggested by David Tittermary. I never fully believed your assertion about the noise reduction being the problem (or possibly ANY problem) but was hardly in a position to argue a case, but now I'm getting close. Time will tell. In the meantime, have a look at the image below, shot at 6400 ISO with NR set to Auto. Shot in a reasonably dark corner of a shed. I opened it in ACDsee and applied a little NR then resized it for here, otherwise it's as taken. Enlarge it to 100% and see if you'd be happy with it had you taken it?

Can you tell me here what settings to use to replicate the problem you were getting with aggressive NR? I'd like to try it from scratch.

...Wait a minute! Am i understanding this correctly? Please correct me if i am wrong, but is Qwntm suggesting to you to turn NR OFF, and you are saying that no you don't want to, or you haven't turned NR to OFF and you preffer to set NR to AUTO???

LOTS of people have suggested to you already to turn NR to OFF. emem, have you even tried shooting your K3 with NR OFF at all??

From what i understand, NR set to auto DOES degrade your photo's sharpness and detail dramatically. What exactly is going on here sir?

Also may i ask what lenses or lens, you have been using with all these samples you have posted?
