Many years ago my first camera,was a Pentax excellent.

I then shot canon for a while for the last 15 years full on Nixon.

Just sold all my Nikon equipment more than I needed .

Big change FX back To DX but oddly most FX shooters want DX capabilities.

Now I'm back to where I starated Pentax.

Hopefully not going for K3 ii wasn't a mistake but from what I read the K3 is more able.
K3 18-135 wr kit HD 55-300
Looks to be a lot lighter but should give good IQ.
Shoot Mostly just my grand kids, wildlife and landscape. .

Thanks for having me...

The only thing the k3 out performs the k3ii on is that if you want a built in flash and not GPS. Also it is easier to control off camera p-TTL flashes optically since the onboard flash can be used as a master or controller for an off camera flash.

NOTE the K3ii can still control flashes optically by adding an AF360(or 540)FGZ (I or II) or with radio control using wireless triggers like the Cactus V6's.
