My friends just bought the K-3 special edition including the battery extension for $1469
. He was able to test the K-3 with the Flu card and is Ipad . He was sold with the photo quality . He was going to buy a Nikon FF.
Now we can exchange lense
Hi Bob,

Your friend bought a Silver Edition K3 already? I'm curious if any stores in Canada have them in stock, or perhaps only available at this show in Montreal?

Thank you,

No, they weren't for sale at the Montreal show, you could only pre-order, though the Pentax Ricoh booth had several on hand and indicated they were "production models". They said Ricoh on the back and were running firmware 1.0.

I am one of the lucky one that got the k3 special edition. Come's with the hand grip including a second battery. I am new in the DSLR world. I was going for the nikon D610, but the sales rep did the difference. He took all the time to show me what Pentax can deliver. He showed me stunning pictures taken with the K3. Pictures that he showed me address most if not all kind of picture type that I will be taken. Flucard worked very well with my IPAD.I just need to perform more testing before giving any review

Here's my config

Pentax macro 100mm
Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6
Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 I might be replacing it for a 17-50 f2.8

Looking for sigma 70-200 mm f2.8

All of that of 1/3 of the nikon price

Have fun!

Welcome to Pentax and Pentax Forums, and congratulations on your new camera. Seems that the sales person knew their stuff and gave good advice and suggestions! That's great to hear.

You will find much useful information, tips, techniques and ideas in this forum. Post some photos when you've learned a bit about the K-3.

Oops - Guess I wasn't paying attention... Here I am in Montreal and I didn't hear about the show... A good chance for me to see what I might be able to find used in a few years... I seem to stay a few years behind the curve. Got a used k5 a few weeks ago and find the low light performance quite nice.

On another relatively irrelevant side note, I am always slightly shocked to see Pentax advertising here, or anywhere for that matter... For a long time - and maybe still, a big poster for the Pentax dslr system in the bus station. I think it was a k-30? Hmm....
