k5iis instead of k3 which I like

After many bad luck with k3 purchasing.. I bought yesterday k5iis

. . I still have the desire to acquire k 3.But after I requested IT from B & H without result .. whether because of delay or loss the camera , I believe that the waiting might be better to be sure that K3 became free of defects that appear usually with the first release of the product.
I like my new k5iis and the long awaiting to me / k3/.

k-3 is quite good, and remarkably free of defects. There are a few random reports of things but in general an almost flawless release for a new camera.

That said, the k-5IIs is also a great camera and in some ways better than the k-3 IMHO. I've shot both, and while I like the k-3 and will be keeping it as my main camera the k-5IIs takes exceptional images with very low levels of noise. Much lower than the k-3, IMHO. File sizes are smaller as well.
