I'm amazed that the fanboys will never give up. The K-3 has less than a quarter extra resolution over the K-5 etc. It should not be rocket science to get as sharp shots with it as you can with the other models. If enough of them get returned and end up in landfill Ricoh might get the point that there is something up with it.

Are you trying to say that all K-3's have sharpness issues? If so, I can assure you as an owner that you are wrong.

But if he is trying to say that SOME K-3's have sharpness issues that are corrected by a trip to Pentax, then I can assure you as an owner of one, that he is correct. With all the reports so far, there can be no doubt that a significant number is K-3's have shipped with problems.

Completely false; all we can say is - like every camera ever made - there are some bad units out there and there is always a chance of getting two (or more!) in a row. Since you have no real data other than a few reports (nowhere near enough to be a real data point), we have absolutely NO IDEA how many K-3's have shipped with problems. It's entirely possible that the K-3 has a high defect rate, and it's entirely possible that the K-3 has a very low defect rate. Only Ricoh and those who service these cameras knows the truth. However, I sympathize with the OP, and understand his frustration.
