71. Larger screen than K20D
72. Larger, brighter viewfinder than K20D
73. Better high ISO performances than K20D
74. Better AF all-around than K20D (speed, low light, accuracy, number of points, live view)
75. Movie mode which did not exist in the K20D

Must I really stop at 5? I've got more.

Nah, the heading says nothing about a limit of 5, just "5 at a time"

Still a few more needed to get to 1000

76. Smaller focus points! That was brilliant in the rain forest!
77. Great continuous shooting speed - helps with handheld bracketing.
78. Fast writing speed.
79. Great responsiveness overall.
80. Superb placing of the AF button.

That would still be cheaper than a 645z!

#1......wanted to upgrade from K30 or at least have a second body
#2......$619 was hard to beat on Ebay Quickndone
#3......Same price as K5ii s or only a few dollars more
#4......had the money at the time and an extra $35 Ebay Bucks off too.
#5......looked good with old SMC-K glass.... looked sexy !

It was an impulse buy and I dont regret it one bit.

* I hated my daughter's K10d (indoors, with slow trailing curtain sync & bounced flash);
* I already got DA 16-45mm/f4 lens (nice piece, recommend);
* I already got Sigma ST-610 DG Super PA-PTTL flash (good flash, recommend);
* I already got Sigma Electronic Flash Macro EM-140 DG (that's not a ring flash, that's a twin flash, but it does its job decently);
* I did not know DA* 16-50/f2.8 is a piece of crap (who designed that zooming ring?? does not matter as the lens is not very sharp);
* Upgrade from K10d to K-5 IIs ($495) did not satisfy me (mostly mixed indoors ambient lights with flash), so I sold K10d ($180) and K-5 IIs ($595) to get K-3 ($795 before $100 mail-in rebate still on the way, which is another story).

For those considering purchasing a K-3, I thought it would be good to have a place for members to post reasons why they purchased their K-3

+1 for the K-3. This is the pro-level camera than CaNikon are afraid to offer their customers. Only Fuji offers any real competition.

Seems like it until you go there and then not so much... That was my experience.
