Thanks for the link, that was an extremely informative read.

It was just a tad bit long. tad bit.

That article has pretty much settled me on the K3!

You were a bit late to the party with this. Class A posted a link to this review on this forum four days ago. Mind you, it's an interesting review.

Nice find! Looks more like a preview to me, since no sample photos means it's a pre-production model they used. But they definitely went all out!

AFAIK production cameras won't be around for another 2 weeks, with the first units hitting the shelves in 3-4 weeks.

For now, it's less of a review and more of a really in-depth technical overview.

If someone could tell me what the following means, I am much abliged

Assuming our lab testing bears this out, you can look forward to around one extra frame with the K-3 for every five you'd have shot with the earlier models. That was taken from the preview above about half way down the page, under Performance.

The pre-production K-3 they previewed has about a 20% faster framerate under AF.C.
