For what's it's worth, my first K-3 was a dud. It had a remarkable back focus problem that tweaking did not fix. I took it back to the store to test with different lenses.

With the DA* 16-50 f/2.8, it had the same problem. It only took about 3 shutter clicks to convince the sales person. -7, +7, it didn't matter. Exchanged it for another one and problem fixed. I haven't looked back since.

As for the lack of sharpness some are complaining about, I recall when the first few Nikon 24 mp were released (D600, D5200, D7100), users on the Nikon side of the house had similar complaints. There is definitely a bit of a learning curve with 24mp sensors. I haven't observed those problems with my K-3 (the second one that is). It's one hell of a camera.
