K3's inaugural outing

The UPS truck pulled up in the driveway and dropped off a box containing a Pentax K3 with a grip and flash from B&H Photo. I grabbed a couple of charged batteries out of the K7 bag and fired up the K3. I reconfigured a few of the default settings in the K3 and updated the firmware. I decided my first outing would be a walk around the pond with the 150-500mm Sigma. I captured about 300 images and am quite pleased with the upgrade from the K7 with image quality on a par with my Canon systems. Here are a few examples from the K3's inaugural outing. I'm off on another photo outing but feel free to comment on the pictures.
