Superb value and very good performances in line with expectations.

Well...

It's decent, but I'm surprised at how much worse at DR it is compared to the k-5. You'd have thought that the two years since K-5 was introduced would have seen some improvement, or at least not be worse.

As is, the decidedly entry-level Nikon 3200 has it matched or beat for IQ. Yes, we all know there's other stuff that matters beside sensor performance, but still.
