Re: Did you upgrade from the K-5 to the K-3?

I have no immediate interest in the K-3.  I do no action shooting and most of my photography is landscapes and macro.  I use a K-5 along with a K-01.  The K-01 sees more use based on peak focusing for macro.  Compared to many photographers I am pretty much a low mileage shooter with my K-5, K-01 and 1stD all with under 5K shutter activations per camera.  But I shot more film than digital up until mid 2011.

I may eventually buy a K-3 based on better cropping performance than the 16 megapixel cameras and the fact that the K-3 has focus peaking.

Back in January I had a K-5IIs  for several weeks.  I did a comparison test using the same lens, ISO setting and exposure settings between the K-5 and the K-5IIs and could not see enough difference between the cameras to keep the K-5IIs.  I am probably one of the very few who did not keep the K-5IIs.
