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

Not so far, no

My K-5 is still a great camera, and for me there wouldn't be much point in upgrading to the K-3. The K-5 still fills all my needs in a digital camera.

Lately I have gone full circle and reverted to film. I shoot the MZ-3 in 35mm format, plus the 645N and N II and occassionally also the 6x7 MLU in medium format and love it.

Digital images from the K-5 are very clean, high iso is great, frame rate is everything I could ever want, but I take more pleasure in taking a lower number of analog photographs with one of the above cameras and developing the film myself (both BW and C-41). Suddenly the lure of a new digital camera every 18 months has disappeared ...
