This 23 year old just grabbed the K3 over the Canon 70D. I'm a amateur-ish sports (motorsports) photographer but really I'm learning as I go. I was finally becoming limited to the equipment i had (lumix gh1 with canon fd lenses) and figure it was time to start a new with a brand that isnt mainstream . Ill be posting my progress soon and images sometime next month after I grab a new laptop.

Hi Alex, and welcome to Pentax Forums. We'll all be interested to see how your motorsports photography works out with the K-3, whose AF abilities are said to be a big improvement in speed over previous bodies. Have a good time here.

Welcome aboard. The K3 is very tempting (if I didn't have debts to pay off, I'd have one already). I'd like to see how you do with motorsports.

Welcome to the forum, I see "Drifting' is your thing, well I would like to think the K-3 will serve you well, it's getting all those "must have" lenses now.

Yeah looking forward getting lenses over the next few weeks/months starting with 70-200mm sigma and then a wide angle of some sort to start with. I'll be posting pictures I already took some with the K-3 but cant post yet .
