Pentax K-3 optical viewfinder - a TRULY immersive experience
4 months ago

I sometimes view a scene through the viewfinder for minutes at a time to catch the precise moment I'm after, like the one below.  No way could I stand to eyeball an EVF like that.  The K-3's 100% optical viewfinder continues Pentax's adherence to no-compromise OVF's for good reason.  It's a feature for photographers who couldn't care less for a centimeter shorter, 20-grams lighter body, or for any other supposed EVF trade-off.  I also can critically frame a shot on a continuous basis as it moves, and dial in polarization exactly and fast as it might change, which simply can't be done on a rear screen in sunlight, short of a royal pain it the tail.  So thanks very much, Pentax, for knowing how photographers sometimes shoot and sticking with your nice OVf's.  WYSIWYG!
