More energy use due to bigger files most likely it has 50% more pixels than the K-5

Also, would anyone be able to guess if the points are smaller than in the 11-point system? If so, that's a good step-up in getting accurate focus.

That's a lot of camera for the money.
It'll be a couple of years before I add another DSLR to my K10 and K-5, but I've got my eyes on the K-3 already.

Looks like the K-3 is a big hit so far! We'll have hundreds of happy shooters on the forum in no time, just like we did with the K-5

Can't share your joy and frankly don't understand it

Yes, I said that.

Why?

Because to me the only real message behind this announcement is that a FULL FRAME Pentax DSLR is put off again, and God knows till when...

Full frame isn't everything. Pentax will surely join that camp some day, but for now, it's actually a smarter idea for them to push out an advanced APS-C body, which is where the majority of the sub-pro DSLR market still lies.

Want a FF? Get a D610 or a D800. They're out there and they're great cameras. But so is the K-3

Joined the board just to join the "where's the FF chorus?" Nice.

Can't we just enjoy this moment for a day or two? There will be plenty of time to whine about where the Full Frame is before it's announced in early 2014.

Don't get so angry, gentlemen. Opinions can vary, and viewpoints may be as different as they can only be, while being equally well-based.

I wrote: for me, not for everybody on the planet. Let the others jigga till the dawn.

I - personally my goodself - have quite a lot of FF lenses that I like and would like to be able to use them on a DSLR a) without 1.6 crop factor, I need wide angles much more than resulting longer telephoto; and b) with image stabilisation built into the body that AFAIK is now made only by Pentax.

Enough logical reasons? Where's any whining?

Yes; DXOMark, DPReview, Imaging Resource tests for example. The Toshiba sensor from the D7100 can't match the 16MP Sony sensor's ability to bring up shadow information, and even when scaled, it has "only" 13.7 EV compared to 14.1.

However, what I was asking was if you have information about the K-3's sensor being a Toshiba as well, since it's not clear from the preview; there was no need for the aggressive response.
But, I guess it was just a supposition.
i think,it's a sony sensor.....imaging-resource .com can address almost everything we have in mind for answers about the K-3.

On the contrary, I believe the tech behind this camera like the new AF module and the new metering system were designed to work with the FF camera as well.

I agree, it is quite possible. However, I can't figure why Pentax should wait any longer with FF launch? If they can make it, they should.

Hear that Kodak stops making photo films?

I agree. If it's possible, I'd love to see the FF in the same K-3 body. That would be a camera to be reckoned with.
