K-3 for me. Olympus is sacrificing the size advantage of the M4/3 system which irc was the main reason for it existing in the first place. DPR staff are big fans of the O-MD, practically raving about it in one of their videos so I will assume it has its merits. I personally think that it will be easier to get a cleaner, bigger print from the K-3, cheaper too.
Lens wise, the Sigma Art series are becoming a force to be reckoned with in the optical arena, Kudos! I am however beginning to become disappointed by the size of these uber lenses.. 18-35, 35 f/1.4 from Sigma, 58 f/1.4 from Nikon, 55 f/1.4 from Carl Zeiss are stupidly big in my opinion. It feels like they are throwing glass and bulk as a solution to limitations instead of real optical design.

On Pentax K-3 preview (961 comments in total)

Looks like K-3 has just put Pentax on the top step of the APS-C podium. Time to retire my faithful K-5.

Intelligent offerings. Not crippled like the competition and having genuine usability extras like the twin dial setup and pentaprism viewfinder.

Body works? Yep
Sensor works? Yep
Some want more sharpness? Ok we'll give them the option
AF in low light.. Lets tweak it
Add anti-glare to the rear screen..Done
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. The K-5 is a good to great design, so they've given it a tune up.
I'll be getting an S :)

In reply to:

disasterpiece: I'm in for my first DSLR and this seems quite a treat - near D7000-like sensor (or maybe better) for less than 2/3 of its price. I'm only concerned about optics I'll be using.

55-300 far from being a pos. Well built and well rated by those who actually go out and take pictures instead of trolling. I regard it as one of the better lenses in its class. S!

Nicely done. Still has an original crystal installed I see.
