Pretty much the only people who write online reviews are people who had a bad experience and want to vent, or trolls.

My K-x came from Abe's of Maine, good price but I got a phone call with an strong up-sell pitch.

My K-5 came from Amazon. Sold by Emmy Photo, but fulfilled by Amazon, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy that way again.
I had a bad experience with Abe's many years ago.
Never bought another thing from them.
Fool me once...

Pretty close to the same distance from Pittsburgh, Erie, and State College. So pretty much out in the middle of nowhere.
Yep, middle of nowhere alright. Pretty country though.

Abe's is well, Abe's. Everyone has a bad experience with them.

Buy from B&H or Adorama. I've used both and had very good experiences. No issues returning things. B&H even maintains a sub-forum here to help with questions / issues. I know some people do not like on line shopping but in some cases it is really the only choice. Order your k-3 and when it arrives make sure to carefully unbox and keep all packing material. If you don't like it just pack it up and go to the website for a return form, simple.

FYI, if you do buy a k-3 make sure you add the Pentax 2 year warranty, I think it is $19.99 and best investment going.
