New K-3 on order

Hi all. I just ordered a new K-3 from adorama yesterday. The kit with the battery grip and the 50mm f1.8 lens. I had been considering getting a dslr again, and the reviews of the K-3 are mostly outstanding, so I ordered one sight unseen. I've been using a Samsung NX1100 for the past year (amazing little camera, btw).

I love to shoot bands, and want to get into other types of photography as as well (landscape, portrait).

Looking forward to meeting all of you.

Welcome! Congrats on the K-3, it is a nice camera.

Look into the 2 year Pentax add-on warranty - only 20 bucks and worth it.

That combo will be awesome for bands! Think about adding a DA 14mm F2.8 for the in close shots in small venues. NX-series cameras are tempting me everyday.

Thanks! Is there a link here to that warranty info?

NX cameras are nice. I'll still use mine for much of the band shooting. With the 30mm pancake, it fits in a jacket or cargo shorts pocket, and produces great photos. I'm expecting somewhat better low light performance from the K-3 (both IQ and AF), and a buffer that is bigger than a thimble.

I love the NX1100 despite its limitations. I'm hoping to love the K-3 more.

This from my ipad. If it doesn't resolve just look for it on the adorama website Pentax 2 Year Extended Warranty for all current DSLR, Compact and Q Cameras. (Total Warranty 3 years - 1 Year Standard + 2 Years Additional)
