24MP + APS-C + faster fps + good low-light AE & AF performance + tracking AF + sufficient buffer depth & buffer clearance speed = Awesome potential for sports/action photography.
That would be wildlife action in my case:


Common Swift K5 with sigma 150-500.

I`ve spend 4 entire afternoons to get this common swift in flight, these animals can reach a staggering 200 Km/h and do the craziest turns. The K5 AF-c just can`t keep up and most of the time won`t even lock on. Worst of all, when finally achieving focus, it will jump and lock into the background when anything appears behind the bird (i.e. Trees, hills, bridges, etc) Improved tracking combined with color-awareness sounds like a gift from heaven to me

Hey guys, any idea about syncro-speed ?? Hope that it will be more than 1/180, and i hope that the new flash system is done to permit HSS easier than before or permit compatibility with some stuff like Odin or PW...

. I will be getting one after the initial rush methinks.
There are lots of ways that the potential hinted at in the specs could be undone through manufacturing QC issues. High-res open-loop AF systems require great precision in the camera body & lens manufacture, alignment & adjustment in the factory. (Just look at the AF array tilt issue Nikon had with the inital D800.)

So the leaks are interesting, but I'll definitely wait to see how well the design has been implemented and the sophistication of the algorithms in the tracking AF, if indeed the K-3 has this.

Nope, everything here, so far, is just wishful thinking and reading between the lines from leaked information.

K-3 is looking for me (Edit).... I will be getting one after the initial rush methinks.
Well I don't know about that... reading what everyone is saying, there will not be an initial rush. We all seem to be waiting on something or other.

I still think there's something special they're not revealing until Tuesday. I think it has to do with the viewfinder.

Sounds good. I would however like to see real world low-light samples first.
They will blow your socks off.

I hope so!

Seems Ricoh has worked through the laundry list of "things that need improved" and checked off a lot of them. We won't know until later how much improvement but it is very nice to know they are either listening or have done their own focus groups. A FF style viewfinder would make another nice surprise.

I hope so. A redesigned DA* 55mm and a big jump forward in high ISO, and I will buy one.

No, seriously; with such a price and such incredible performance, and above all — quality — people will see how pathetic was Fuji to name their camera package "Pro". Or, put all in perspective and see what Oly has to brag about with E-M1. Or what Nikon offers as an entry level FF.

I think many will finally come to common sense. The K-3 will be, by far, the best and most evolved APS-C camera ever made, by any manufacturer, punching well above its weight.
