Joined Forum To Learn About Pentax

Hi All

I have joined your forum , as past experience has taught me , it is the best place to learn about gear. I got into digital photography a couple years ago when I bought a Canon T2i. I have been happy with this camera but feel ready to move up a level in my gear. I primarily shoot landscapes, architecture, wildlife.
In the next few weeks I'll be ready to pull the trigger on a new purchase and have been doing a lot of research. I had narrowed my choices to the Canon 70D and Nikon D7100, when today I came across a video on the Pentax K-3. I have to admit it really got me curious. As I stated before, I have been using a Canon. That said, I'm not married to any particular brand.
Anyway, I look forward to reading more about the K-3 and welcome any insights that any of you current owners may have.

I don't own a k-3, but it is currently the top of Pentax's line. A lot of the reviewers are saying really positive things about it & it seems like the forum members who have one are quite enjoying theirs.
