Re: the K3 is perfectly tiimed to hit C and N where they hurt

I see it as the K-3 being about equivalent to a 7d (4 year old body), with a better sensor of course and they still lack the lens support that the 7d has (the more important aspect).

However, I do think it would appeal to people looking for a D400, but it really speaks volumes about how advanced the D300 was at the time (6+ years ago).  Even the D300s was about 4 years ago and was just a video upgrade and maybe a couple other small features.

It definitely shows Pentax is now competitive in an area of the market that peaked about 4 years ago.  However, I think there is still a niche for such a market and the K-3 really has an advantage on Nikon/Canon for those that want compact size.

Honestly, if I were looking at an APS-C DSLR I would buy the K-3 in a heartbeat.
