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

I am sure K-3 is a fantastic camera. I did pre-order one but cancelled the order and instead bought a K-5 IIs to replace my 3-year old original K-5. I have done several events and numerous macros and nature shots with the IIs. It is an extremely reliable camera, head and shoulder above the original K-5. Sharpness is another area that the IIs shines. I honestly don't see the need to get a K-3, unless the price is low enough. I think DSLRs in general have become so good that they are like major appliances that should last for awhile.  BTW, I also have a K-01 in case I need focus peaking.
