The sample video is available. Not very well set up or shot either. I guess reviewers are not videographers. I'm sure it does no justice to the K-3.

I guess you're trying to open the images in a new tab/separate window? They use a kludgey system that doesn't work like that, you need to click each picture and then go back to see the next.

PhotographyBlog review of K-3 is out

The review is out:
Pentax K-3 Review | PhotographyBLOG

"We really can't think of anything bad to say about the new Pentax K-3, other than it deserves a better lens than either the 18-55 or 18-135mm kit lenses to realise its true potential. Pentax may not be as big or have the kudos of Nikon and Canon, but in the new K-3, they definitely have a fantastic semi-pro DSLR camera that's worthy of our highest Essential! award."

WOW! Essential award!

Not many of them floating about.

Such a reasonable review; must have been written by adults.

Good review but if one wants to be picky it looks like his manual may have a few missing pages. Some things which stood out were not being able to set aperture and shutter speed while shooting video (you can and also ISO), or that there is no histogram display in live view (there is - if you turn it on).

I was also surprised that he described the CDAF as being slow as it seems to me to be quite the opposite as these things go. Is he comparing it to CDAF on other cameras or to PDAF?

Apart from these minor issues it is indeed a very well written review.

No was not. Just clicking the [broken] thumbnail. I still get the forbidden message.
So I tried another browser and it's fine (IE and Chrome). I guess it's Comodo's 'Dragon browser' using their secure DNS that's the problem as it happens even incognito.

EDIT: Right-click to open in a new window seems to work fine in Chrome and IE.

For someone looking for the WOW factor, those high ISO images really deliver! You could hardly ask for more. Great results.
I'll grab some of those DNGs and see how they can be worked.
