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.


That is what I was trying to say. For whatever reason there appears to be either a design or QA/QC problem with the K-3. It is like the K-5 sensor stains episode all over again. Blaming it on some 'extra learning curve' needed to cope with the extra 20% resolution of the sensor or on user error is stupid. People seeing the problem are often not beginners. I for one will hold off buying until this is sorted by Ricoh.
