Better review than others. With the usual annoying qualifiers like it's not mirrorless, it's not FF. I think it is annoying because experienced enthusiasts will already have their own views on this, but it does influence beginners and casual shoppers. I think what has already happened is that Pentax is being purchased by photographers who are not crowd followers and have the self-confidence to make their own decisions irregardless of reviewer opinions. It does take a certain level of experience to get to that stage so I do worry about the future of Pentax when it comes to getting new adopters to get started on the system.

I think Pentax has to figure out this problem and look for solutions to it. While the K3iii is a great camera and deserves all the enthusiasm, I think the future of Pentax will be decided more by sales of cameras like the K-70 and future products in the lower price ranges. There are things too that Pentax can do in the lens front since they probably still make more money from lens sales than body sales. While Pentax is doing great things in the premium lens categories, it's been awhile since they did anything in the entry and mid-level lens categories.

I tend to agree with that... no, not 'tend'... do agree with that.
