Hello there


Having been a thoroughly content K-r user for the past 3 years I am pondering upgrading to a K-3 or maybe a K-5iis, depending on funds. I hope to gain some valuable insight here and contribute as much as my rookie knowledge permits!

Welcome aboard! You can't go wrong with any of those cameras, I think. The K-3 seems a bit less forgiving to the lenses and the photographer with its higher resolution, and the raw files are big. But it has some really nice features which the K-5IIs doesn't have. Is it worth the price difference? I don't know. The K-5IIs is a very good camera already.

I'm not very helpful, I know

Welcome aboard! Have fun researching and wracking your brain deciding between the two.
