I owned a Q and gave it away. Enough of these small pocket cameras already. Pentax needs to stop playing catch up with Canon, Nikon, and Sony, and invest product funds into longer range lenses, and a full frame camera. I shot the K-3 this weekend at the Missouri State Fair and I am here to tell you the shutter speed is fast, much faster than my Nikon D7100. Okay so what do I want for this rig? I want a lens comparable to Canon's 100-400mm or Nikons 80-400mm in an f/4-f/5.6 range and I could even live with the same pricing as these two. Although the Canon is cheaper than Nikon. In my opinion Pentax could challenge these two giants if they had a more aggressive Product Development and Marketing Teams. I learned on the Pentax K-10. I have owned the K-10, K-20, and K-7. Sold them all and switched to Nikon because of full frame and greater lens selection for wildlife. I recently added to my gear the K-5iis and K-3. The K-3 basically for its fast shutter speed and 24 mega-pixel sensor. Just my thoughts.
