The main difference is in auto-focus.

  • Prior to the K-3, the size of the Pentax AF points has been a constant complaint. The K-3 allows pinpoint accuracy in AF-S due to smaller points.
  • AF-C is improved immensely. The K-3 uses colour to track the subject, and 27 vs. 11 points for closer tracking. AF Hold control is an important feature, not available on previous Pentax bodies.

Thanks Dan for your reply.

what would be your choice for landscape and for portraiture.

I've noticed with the K5IIs some exaggerated or "cruel" red skin imperfections in some portraits. Could it be the lack of anti-aliasing filter? Could this be corrected using K3 with the filter "on"?
