I think you were too far away to get a great shot, regardless of camera. Deer are skittish but you will occasionally sneak up on one - you and the deer will both be startled. The trick IMO is to keep the camera ready so you can get photos before the deer runs away.

If you want high-ISO (and money is no object), probably better to get the 645Z. I suspect it's high-ISO will match the A7s. Plus you get tons more detail.

Don't expect it to cost much less than the A7 series - just expect it to work better with Pentax lenses!

if Pentax can max out a FF sensor like they do with APS,then price is not a problem

FF is not the answer. It would make the deer in the top photo appear even smaller and require more cropping.

Here's a deer shot with a K-3. See how much nicer they come out?


In all honesty I think you would be better served with a longer lens with support or bolder deer. Although the increased K-3 resolution should help with cropping too, reducing the need to crop would be better.

This might be a better investment than a new camera body

Question..
for this type of shot I need to use ISO3200 F5.6 1000sec (only used 500) to get the deer sharp while it is running full speed away from me.
This is with the K5II. DA*300 + HD DA 1.4 TC handheld
since I have to crop would I get a better image with the K3? as it seems the K5II has better high ISO, but of course the K3 has more MP
I am trying to find the best solution for this type of shot,which was also handheld. ISO 6400 or greater would give me a faster shutter speed but noise would make it look unsharp

any help is appreciated
I'd shoot raw to get all the fine detail on a hairy butt...
