.......Look at Pentax K-3 spec's and price point. Almost every review gives the K-3 top marks on photo quality (raw). Right now, Canon's cropped camera's can't touch the K-3 under $1110.00.

Announced 7 months ago, the K-3 is here and taking no prisoners.

DPReview gives the K-3....83%, GOLD AWARD. DPReview all so says....The K-3 is capable of some excellent images. Its sensor shows impressive dynamic range at low ISOs and remains pleasantly clean as the light levels fall.

You know the brain trust at Canon was about to pull the trigger on the 7DmkII in mid 2013 and give the engineers the go ahead to build it.....but the K-3 killed that idea quickly. Can you imagine Canon matching the K-3 price to the 7DmkII.....NO!

As a Canon owner, underdog Pentax is trouble for the company. Now add the maverick company called...Sony. Two companies not afraid to be aggressive against the (BIG TWO), Canon and Nikon.
