Oops...

So I've been look at/researching the K-3 vs my K-30 for days on end almost pulling the trigger multiple times, and ended up ordering one via Amazon.com (direct from Amazon) today for the same net price of the K-3 kit from B&H less the 50mm lens/accessories. At least I won't have the hassle of selling a duplicate of my 50mm lens

My rationale was: I hope to see a significant improvement in the WB and Metering, faster AF from screw-drive and better low-light focusing as well for better indoor shots w/ less PP.

What do you guys think? Will it be worth it?

Sounds like your reasoning was spot on. I'm sure you'll enjoy the k3!

If I could only get that deal from B&H.... I really don't want to buy from Amazon (but let's not get into a discussion about that.)
