YESSSSS

I have been waiting for you guys to do this!

Jordan - on my headphones (Sennheiser HD428), the sound seems to lean towards the right ear and has a very odd fluctuation in the left ear. I checked my headphones against my music and I'm pretty sure it's not my headphones. Is it youtube causing that?

I've always found The Camera Store's reviews to be fair, mixing in the pros and the cons with not only the Pentax systems but the other systems out there as well. Thanks for the review!

Whatever TCS is paying you guys, tell them to double it! Your video work and Chris' presentation skills (on any camera review, not just Pentax) is always top-notch, fluid, and fun. Why can't all the other camera-boffins on Youtube and elsewhere manage this? Oh yeah... skill and dedication. Keep it up!

Oh, and nice review. I'm getting to know my K-3 (from *cough* Henry's *cough*) and your opinions and details are spot on. These are gonna fly off the shelves, despite all the retro full-framiness coming out.

Well balanced review although it more or less confirmed my fears over the new AF system.

Looks like I will be sticking with the K-5II and 7D ... was hoping I could finally get rid of the Canon.

Wow, great review. Really looks like Pentax improved most things that users complained about and added some sweet extras. And AF should be better than K-5II, so that should mean the difference between the K-3 and competition is mostly theoretical

Fantastic video - great overall appraisal, and very fair, which makes the genuine enthusiasm all the more honest.

But I'm surprised this video is out, while the K-3 still isn't even listed on The Camera Store's web site. I like TCS and probably would've bought from there instead of Henry's, but Henry's had it up for pre-order, and TCS still doesn't even list it.

But excellent work on the video regardless - keep them coming.

Still this is firmware 1.0 and the very begining of the lifecycle. I think there is still much more to be had from this device.
