I'm not seeing a product that's enticing me by its improved detail and sharpness over my k3.

That's exactly the doubt I'm having.

I don't doubt the K3iii is a great camera - but for me personally:

  • I'm sure the AF tracking is greatly improved...but as a mainly landscape photographer that's not something I need
  • nor do I particularly need 12 fps 
  • I'm perfectly content with ISO 1100 (as the maximum I personally like to use on the K3)

I'm sure the K3iii would be a joy to use with the improved OVF and I'm quite prepared to spend the money once the prices come down a little but if it's not going to give noticeable improvements in image quality compared to my K3 (and may even not be as good in some circumstances) then I'm starting to question the wisdom of such a purchase.
