New here but not to Pentax. I have been using their products for over 30 years. I am fairly new to the digital world but will keep my Pentax LX and 35mm lenses as well as my Pentax 6711 kit as well as my darkroom. I just picked up my K3 last week and have a DBG5 on order from B&H to go with it. I chose the black version as the limited silver version looks too plasticy to my eye. So far the K3 improvements over my K511 are very impressive. Not so impressive is the skinny manual and no USB 3.0 cord enclosed in the box. I have noticed a lot of discussion over the headphone socket size (ie: 1/8 vs 1/4), in fact the socket accepts a mini 3.5mm plug. One would need a lot of KY to insert a 1/4 inch plug.

K3 etc.

Thanks for your reply. The digital world is a whole new world to me. It is a steep learning curve for me from the darkroom to all that is available in the digital world. Safe to say I am embracing this new to me world and am enjoying site for 'Pentaxians'

Merci pour votre response! Bonjour du Vancouver Island, BC Canada.

With winter coming up I will find time to post some images. That will be another new 'skill' to learn.
