The new girl arrived today :)

My K-3 arrived today and although I cant wait to play with her and learn her ways i'll have to wait until Tuesday to have a play . Good thing is the batteries from my K-5 2s fit her so I have a spare as well as a pair for my K-5 . Have a 64gb and 32gb cards installed and ready to go . Will mainly be using her for Aircraft and Birds with a bit of motorsport thrown in .
Good times ahead

Have fun and beware, for your computer storage, because you have 96 Gb on camera

Bit of a pain in the patoot that you have to buy a data transfer cable and none is supplied . My K-5 came with a cable so why doesn't the K-3 ?

The USB 3.0 connector on the body is backwards compatible with a standard micro USB 2.0 cable, you just plug it into the lower portion of the socket and leave the upper portion unused. If you have other electronic gadgets, you most likely have a micro USB 2.0 cable that will fit. The only downside is that you will only get USB 2.0 speeds when transferring photos from the camera. It will take a bit longer, but it will work fine.

You can get USB 3.0 cable for fairly cheap these days ($5-7). I agree it's very annoying they couldn't include one in the box.

Aircraft fan here. Post pix pls.

Just for info - the K-3 AF is different from the K-5IIs, and it may take some practice to figure out how to get things working optimally (esp the AF-C options).
