Ahead of the game but I thought that it would be nice to have a dedicated thread to view the sample shots taken by owners of the new K3 .... all in one thread.

It would also be nice to see what lens(es) is (are) being used and any specifics (EXIF).


Ideally, as rawr suggested, this thread should be somewhat the equivalent of the "No more tests - Just pictures" referred here:https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/115-pentax-k-5/123731-no-more-tests-just-pictures.html

If this is going to be a redundant thread , please mod's : dismiss it.

Cheers!

I took delivery of my K3 + 18-50 last week. Grabbed a couple of shots of my horticultural endeavours, then went walkabout my locale over the sunny/overcast weekend. these were taken using AF mode, Aperture priority.

I have ordered a Adaptall 2 > Pentax adaptor, and will try my Tamron lenses on manual/focus peaking when possible.


thoughts/comments appreciated!

Bored and playing with the DF 100mm macro I am quite impressed with it's close focus abilities, it's quite sharp. I still can't budge on my OM 50mm f/1.8 and extension tunes for macro though.

Rockin' the fair doing some testing. My DA*16-50mm started giving me some trouble so I bought a Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 to replace it. I use my DA 20-40 as well which does great!

All of these are at high ISO

After a very hot, dry summer with major wildfires; finally rain. Mushrooms popped up all over the yard, with 2" of rain in one day.

I took my trusty K3ii to Fort Erie Races on Sunday, the stewards very kindly let me sit in the seat at the end. Had a bit of excitement when one of the horses bucked and threw the jockey. Nobody was hurt and 3 seconds later they were off!
