For those saying this looks like a Fuji perhaps you should look at the pentax K1000, I'm sure Nikon also had a similar camera.

Was pentax on this list, I didn't watch through to find out?

Nice review, very fair and well balanced. This seems like a great camera, fast and fantastic image quality. Not much to complain about but lots to like.

Lotz: Lots of private people aleready managed to show test images with the K3 III, even photonstophotos did measure and analyze the K3 III sensor.

And here - not even a hint of a picture gallery nor a test.

regards

Markus

I'm also wondering when will the images show up in the comparison tool?

As a meteorologist who enjoys photography, these are fantastic. Sometimes I wish I lived in area that saw a few more supercell thunderstorms, but not too many.

Daft Punk: Bravo Pentax. This is clearly a decent camera and a lot of people who truly love photography have put a lot of hard work in to create it.

I recently dusted down my old D700 and had a ball shooting with it again. I find myself looking at Nikon Dfs on eBay and pausing over the bid button.

Or I could get one of these. I’ve got some Pentax glass for my LX film camera.

I wonder what MF is like with the K3 III ?

I think Pentax may have a success on their hands here.

With the good viewfinder and the 101 af points for verification it should be usable for sure. Perhaps just as easy as in live view.

How long before we see this camera in the image comparison tool?

Looking forward to seeing some images from this site. If this were a FF Dslr it would cost substantially more, if the IQ is as good as the FF competition than this may still be good value.

On a side note I struggle to see why the Pentax bashing seems to be starting. Enthusiast photographers have to be the most critical group of people in any industry.

I dont think it's too expensive, I just cant justify buying it. That's true of a lot of things though.

ShaiKhulud: It was an interesting little device until I saw the price.

I mean, good luck with that, Ricoh. Same as with fp L, it's a neat little device without clear target audience, especially for the money.

DPR comments will boast about how great the body is, but in real world nobody will buy APS-C DSLR for 2 grand in an age, where cameras like Z7 or even X-T4 are cost the same, or even cheaper.

The X-T4 is an apsc camera and launched at the same price. Were people complaining about the price? Serious question. If not why, because its lack an optical viewfinder , that should make it cheaper I would think.

In reply to:

Buttons252: I really like the looks of it, but i wont be buying a $2000 camera that falls short of a Z6 or X-T4. Id rather buy a used K1 or a K70.

Looking at the specs you might think that but after looking at a couple of online reviews that may not be the case. perhaps in a couple areas but generally no, this camera may have better IQ than either of those. Time will tell.

I'm not sure where all of the pentax hate comes from. Pentax has a great range of lenses and now an amazing aps-c camera too. My only issues are that it isn't out now and that I can't afford it.

The 10-17 fisheye is just a really fun lens to use. Autofocus speed is a non issue for a lens like this. It does make a little noise but not really a big deal either. Optics are good, pretty close to a macro. If you enjoy photography than you would like this lens.

CaPi: Thank you for the lineup, DPR.
I found myself buying a dslr in 2019 and appreciate your listings as Input.

Are you being serious? Honestly, I don't know, I hope not, but maybe you are.

Lol, I'm not sure if I should repeat the sentiments that have been posted many times. Is the agenda here to push mirrorless by any chance?

I don't think I'll bother even reading the review. It's pretty obvious how good this lens is, I'll just look at the pictures that people post. I've already read some reviews on this lens and although it isn't perfect it's pretty darn close, I would be happy to own one someday.

Esstee: I don't see anything here that my smartphone can't do however.

It's quite a bit cheaper than most high end smartphones and will take better photos in any lighting situation. Unless you only use your smartphone to look at pictures in which case any camera will do.

DPReview please stop feeding the trolls on this site. I'm not sure if it's some type of passive aggressive thing or completely subconscious. Perhaps the sensitive Pentax fans have helped pushed you to this I'm not sure. Your style of writing wrt to Pentax tends to be overly negative. I don't notice this so much with other companies. I can't believe that you want Pentax to fail but maybe you just like stirring the pot. My comments aren't specific to just this "Hands on" but even with something this straight forward you can't seem to help yourselves.
