I have just purchased a used Pentax K3 from an Australian camera store. Fortunately they have their own camera repair person not that I need it now.
Up until now I have used a Panasonic Lumix FZ200 bridge camera. It did a great job but noise was quite a problem.
Very impressed with the K3. Love that amazing green button for manual mode.
Still learning. Shooting in Natural mode. Reduced the sharpening to -3. But it's sharpness is still amazing at -3.
Using raw, editing with Luminar. Luminar's white balance options are excellent.

Welcome to the forum, as far as I know the camera sharpness settings don't affect RAW files, this is all done in PP after the event.
