I have owned a Pentax film camera for years and am looking into purchasing the K-3. I consider myself an amateur who is really interested in improving. I love being outdoors so most of my photos are wildlife or landscapes. So glad there is a Pentax Forum!

K-3 is better than peers

If you look at the Canon 70d and the Kilon 7100, it's not even close. My wife and I are pros and selected Pentax due to lenses. Unless you do 75% landscapes and extra wides, the APS-C platform is smaller, lighter, the crop (1.5x) works in your favor. K-3 is tough, small, great electronics...

You'll like how the Pentax cameras handle manual lenses, too. Very intuitive but it does take some work.
