  • White balance is better which give more consistent colors. IQ of the K-3 is better.  The K-3 & K-5 have practically the same signal to noise curve, but the K-3 has 50% more "pixels".  This means ...
  • I have been comparing the X-T1 with my K-3 as I consider switching to Fuji.  The K-3 is giving me better files RAW files.  The Fuji JPEGs are much, much better than the Pentax, but in RAW the ...
  • True, but I want a camera that takes clean images and then allows me to decide how much grain to add.
  • Now that Pentax has the 645Z and the K-3 special edition out of the way they can focus on the new D-FA* 70-200mm F/2.8 and Full Frame K-1 at Photokina. Unless they are saving the Q for Photokina as ...
  • I would have to disagree.  The K-3 files are producing better prints in every way.  Even as small as A3+ I see noticeable improvement in image quality.
  • I have shot with 4 different brands.  They all have problems.  The mirror-flap issue is a tough on for Pentax/Ricoh simply because not everyone experiences the problem, so isolating the cause is ...
  • There are times when I go for a photo-walk where I just set the camera to B&W or even use the hard monochrome filter and just shoot B&W for the day.  I really like the K-3 for OOC B&W much more ...
  • Since getting the K-3 I have started shooting RAW to my main card and JPEG to the WiFi card.  The official images will be processed from RAW, but the JPEGs are often quick an easy way to share ...
  • I would suggest keep 3 of those lenses and selling the rest simply because of the huge amount of overlap that you have.  Or sell them all and buy 3 really good lenses. The K-5 produces excellent ...
  • Replied in Medium Format.
    I would wait.  I think medium format mirrorless is coming very soon.  I don't think I would invest in the current MF systems for digital at this time.
  • NO.  I would keep the 77mm.  If you don't use the 77 why would you use the 70mm?
  • I'm pretty sure Pentax is getting ready to release HD versions of the FA Ltd lenses, so used 77mm lenses will probably be hitting the market at the end of the year. The 100mm D-FA WR has really ...
  • I'm sure we will see them reintroduced with HD coatings with the new FF body later this year.  I would hope that Pentax add DC AF and weather seals, but I doubt they put that much into them.
  • Nice.  3200 ISO is looking good.
  • The D-FA 100 WR is a top performing lens.  I don't think anyone ever complained about its sharpness, only the slow AF and no range limiter.
  • Not sure.  I have never shot any HD video on my K-3, nor do I care to.  The X-T1 could remove all HD video functionality and I will still like the camera.  I don't think people who buy the X-T1 ...
  • The S/N ratio of the two seems to be the same up to 3200-6400, but since the K-3 has 50% more "pixels" the noise has a finer grain to it and images hold more detail.  SO even if the S/N is the ...
  • There were only 2 lenses that seemed to have a high fail rate and according to a Pentax engineer the problem was solved.  Pentax never officially admitted that there was a problem.  It was only ...
  • The K-3 is the better camera in just about every way.  I think the advantage Canon has is with the AF speed of its lenses.  SDM just doesn't move as fast as the Canon USM.
  • I have shot with Canon most of my life.  My first digital was the 5D (original).  Canon doesn't make a camera that I would buy today.  The build quality and image quality of the K-3 is ...
