klkitchens,

I saw your first image before fully reading your description, but was very impressed when I read ISO 9000. Very promising performance, indeed!

Now about that extraordinarily high keeper rate... Could I trade you one of my Olympus Trip 35's? It doesn't take a battery, and the disintegrated light seals and zone focusing technique are guaranteed to reduce your keeper rate to almost zero. So, very few keepers to begin with, and no post processing!

- Craig

PS. Glad you are enjoying the K-3.

The first page of this thread made me laugh, but as one of many low-light and night photo enthusiasts wondering whether to go for a K-5II/s + extra lens, or a K-3, I wonder if the K-5II/s would have done as well? Clearly not K-5, but K-5II/s? I still have some possible concerns about K-3 video versus K-5II video, too, especially when using SR and in low light (as per the video thread).

Okay, I'll be serious for a minute. Yes, Dave, that is the question. Is the high ISO capability of the K-3 equal to (or better than) that of the K-5iis? Is the noise, for example, roughly the same? Does the noise clean up as easily as it does for the K-5iis? Mock blustering aside, I do hope one of our new K-3 users will examine that comparison.

Gotcha... never went to the K-5 II/IIs, so I cannot help you there.

Check out my Flickr 'Photostream' (link below). You'll find tons of K20D, K-7, K-5, Q and K-5IIs images (all pp'd from DNGs), plus a few from my 2 day old K-3 (more to come, probably...).


BTW: I rarely spend more than 5 minutes pp-ing an image. My goal is 3 minutes, or less, which means the base OOC image is pretty close to being finished. I only crop to compose then spiff it up a little.


You be the judge.


Cheers... M
