Plan for my K-5, K-5 II, K-5 IIs, and K-3

Hi folks,

FWIW: I cannot tell any difference between the K-5 IIs and the K-3 with the use of the same lens, and an image of the same subject, printed at 12x18 inches on A3+ (13x19 inch) paper. This is the largest size I will ever be printing.

So, my plan is to use the K-3 for BIFs because of it's better tracking and FPS ability, small birds that have landed because of it's cropping ability, and any other image that might require larger cropping.

I will be using the K-5, K-5 II, and K-5 IIs for everything else.

I now think I am set for the rest of my photographic life. However, if Ricoh produces a FF Pentax DSLR camera and / or a mirrorless in the form similar to the Sony NEX-6 or Nex-7 cameras then I will most likely buy them just because.

Just my 2 cents on the subject.

Cheers and happy shooting everyone.
