Jatrax, I think that you are right. All photos needed different approach in terms of editing and all the presets which I've been using on K-5 II's photos can't be used on K-3 II's photos. But I'm starting all over and so far I really like the camera (except the short life of the battery).
My initial experience with the k-3 was somewhat disappointing. I had developed presets for the k-5 and then the k-5IIs and had been using them so long it never occurred to me they were all designed for a different sensor. I also read some early reviews of the k-3 that were not complimentary and suspect the same was true of the reviewers, just no experience with the new sensor.

Not sure about the battery life, I never really checked the k-3 but 500-600 sounds right. I got over 1,000 on the k-5 several times. But I rarely shoot more than 200-300 a day anyhow so not an issue for me. It has been my practice to pull the battery and put it in the charger at the same time I pull the SD card to transfer files. I also carry 4 spare batteries when I'm out and about. That covers me and my wife's camera plus spare bodies.

Also, check your camera calibration settings in Lightroom if you use that. With the k-5 sensor I preferred the Adobe profile but on the k-3 I think the embedded profile gives better results than the Adobe one. YMMV

First test with pixel shift. Used straight in camera JPG into lightroom because the raws don't get along with it. Got this printed out at 20x30 just to see the large printing capabilities and I think I could have gone nearly double the size still.

Got my K3II after originally getting a K-S2 to replace my K-01, made the right choice to change and get the K3II!




Few initial shots with my new to me DA10-17mm

I do believe that you just cost me a lot of money. The 150 - 450 lens looks awesome.
