    DP Review DSLR/SLT Camera of the year 2013... And the prize goes to...

    Best DSLR / SLT of 2013 - Winner: Pentax K-3

    The Pentax K-3 was an early front-runner in this poll, and blazed through to a convincing victory, garnering an impressive 31.4% of the total vote. Strangely, stablemates the K-50 and K-500 got almost no love, but the capable, innovative K-3 was your pick for best DSLR/SLT of 2013 by a landslide. Which probably means we should get going with our full review, right? We'll get right on it.

    [top]What you said:

    "the Pentax K-3 is simply an awesome camera. I paired it with the DA*300 mm lens for birding and absolutely love it. Couldn't be happier"
    "once you use a Pentax body you're gonna love how it handles"
    "Pentax have produced a great camera and deserves the vote regardless of which brand people shoot"
    "Pentax tried something new and listened to their users"

    I never considered PENTAX for digital. My first film camera was the Pentax MX, I'v never purchased another Pentax camera since then, but looking at the review it seems like a very interesting piece of kit....

    I ended up upgrading after daughter-in-law needed a camera for her uni studies and I had an excuse to hand on my well loved K-5 to a very appreciative recipient. I must say the K-3 produces stunning images even with my limited experience. I've tried birds locally now too, with better results than I had with the K-5, so am truly looking forward to my next trip to Kakadu mid year! Must save up for a longer lens.

    Oh...and it's coming fly fishing with me to Tas in a couple of weeks so lakes scenery and friends with trout are on the photographic menu. Just have to decide which lenses to take...10-20, 40, and the 18-135WR kit lens, I guess will cover most things on this trip.
    Pentax K-1, K-3 and some lovely, mostly Pentax, mostly prime lenses - DFA 15-30, 24-70, and 100 Macro, FA 31, 43, and 77 Ltd, DA* 200 & 50-135, DA 12-24, 20-40 (ltd), 15, 21, 35 (Ltd) Macro, 40, 50, plus a couple of manuals from way back and a few others for good luck.
