    DXO Labs have posted their review now too, including sensor tests such as dynamic range and ISO performance.

    He he, just like Rove used to say "who would you turn gay for".....

    maybe this is the camera many "I'm waiting for a D400" Nikon fanboys will turn Pentax for....

    Hi,

    New here but following this thread closely. I'm outgrowing my K-r but love the Pentax system and have a good range of lenses, all of which I use. In other words staying Pentax.

    The K-3 looks the goods, but the K-5 II is on sale this weekend at B&H in the US for a crazy US$600, or $800 with the 18-135mm WR lens. Two questions:

    - as a keen amateur and very small-time pro (occasional events and profile shots) would the K-5 II keep me happy for a couple of years?
    - is it worth the risk importing a body from the US given the enormous savings on offer?

    Think I know the answers to both questions, but interested in other points of view.

    David

    1. Yes at that price, but the K-3 is very good
    2. Call CR Kennedy and see if they are willing to do a deal

    Been reading more and more good reviews of this new K3.
    To be brutally honest; I wish I hadn't moved to Nikon and the D800. The D800 is a tremendous camera, but it just lacks....... character compared to my K5
