Very impressive though I can see that NR is applied, hope to see some RAW images as well.

Also here is a video showing the difference in in-body AF motor noise between the k-5 and k-3


Disappointingly, they both sound the same.

ISO100 to 400 has no appreciable noise, as far as I can tell.

25,600 is pretty destructive - even on the scaled down version. On the other hand, it may also be a bit of heavy handed noise reduction.

Must be something wrong with your ears. The K3 is much noisier, which is kind of disturbing since its supposed to be the most advanced camera.

I think it's a bit disappointing to see sharpness tests with a superzoom.

Why is the lens release being used?

To retract the autofocus screw in the body so that the lens can be defocused manually (not shown very well in the video), requiring the autofocus mechanism to then refocus for the next "sound".

Looks like another pre-production model. Very funny on the superzoom

It's a bit confusing because the lens looks like one of the new HD Limiteds in silver, which should have quickshift to allow turning from near to infinity etc without needing to do that. Unless I am not recognizing the lens correctly.

Hmm, looks rather my FA 31, except mine is black. No quick shift.

Actually you are probably right, the HD lenses has the red ring and the lens in the video does not. Good eye.

Wow, those are crappy photos. Drab looking, high ISO is a mess, the lens is soft. I won't be pointing anyone to these. I'm sure the K-3 can do much better.
