K-3- The Reviews, So Far

Hello All,
On another thread- 'What Digitial Camera Review' started by Ivor K Ecks, I posted a list of the existing independent reviews of the K-3 that have been mentioned by various Forum members so far.
But I didn't add the links to the respective threads or direct links to the reviews. I didn't have all the links handy, simply because I only had been keeping a paper list as they appeared.
This thread is an attempt to correct that oversight. I'm not trying to undermine the original threads, they're still here for anyone to see and contribute to.
Here, I'll start posting the review name, the direct link and the user name of the original poster/thread starter.
So, they'll all be in one place. As new ones come up, I'll add them into this post, or if someone finds it first, feel free to add it as a reply, or start a new thread. Then I'll steal it! LOL!
This will take awhile, digging back through various forums, threads and links. Please be patient!
A special thank you to all the sharp-eyed members who found these first!!
Ron

One would expect that, but I think many of our members still don't know that we have a content-rich news & reviews section here on the site.

Independent?

Hello Adam, dngr and I-trax,
Yes, I am aware of the extensive review of the K-3 here on Pentax Forum. While I agree with many posters that the review is extremely objective and probably the most knowledgeable of any listed previously, it didn't seem to be truly 'Independent', the main qualification noted in my opening sentence.
Independent, in this case, meaning free of any self-serving, internal or unfair influence.
While we may all (here) agree that Adam's review is unbiased, including it does have the appearance of being self-serving and a 'homer' or fanboy.
Sort of like listing an 'independent' Nikon review, done by the Nikon staff, on the Nikon home site?
JMO, YMMV.
However, at the request of three posters, I have added it to the list.
Thank you all for pointing it out.
Respectfully,
Ron

New Reviews?

Hello kiwi_iono
The 'What Digital Camera' review was the first link listed on my OP. Contributed by Ivor K Ecks.
Since adding the Pentax Forum review (see post above), it is now second.
The other link you mentioned won't work for me, it comes back invalid.
Ron
I tried a search and found this link;
http:///2013/11/18/pentax-k-3-review-its-good-buy-it-unless-you-dont-need-it/
But after I cut and paste here, it comes back invalid.

Thanks!

To markkuk, thank you for posting this link, I've added it to the list.
Somehow I'm not surprised that dxomark finds the Nikon superior, they usually do. But it doesn't agree with most of the other test review conclusions.
A bit odd, to say the least.
K-3, Camera of the Year, 2013.
