Greetings from Ireland!

Hi, I've just joined (after occasionally lurking for many years!). Had some birthday cash to spare so recently upgraded from my K20D to a second-hand K3 - which I still have the option to return and seriously thinking about as I find it difficult to get used to compared to the K20D. One issue someone might advise on please: I have been doing some test shots of the same scene at different apertures and find the wheel sticks after a few changes - is there a valid reason for this or is it a technical fault with the camera? Never happened on the K20D.

Pentax K-3 Review
Originally announced on October 7th, 2013, the Pentax K-3 is the exciting new flagship 24-megapixel APS-C DSLR from Pentax which will be replacing the outgoing K-5 II and K-5 IIs models. This camera delivers numerous enhancements over the aging Pentax K-5 family of DSLRs, which was originally introduced more than three years ago, in September 2010. Targeted mainly at advanced photographers and enthusiasts, the K-3's improved key specifications are now on par with (or better than) those of the Nikon D7100, its closest competitor within the DSLR realm. . .

Welcome to the forum from the Highlands of Scotland, I'm not familiar with the K3 but a wheel that's sticky doesn't sound right to me.
