K3 review on the 'tube.

Hi all.
There I was all settled on saving up for the K3, after reading and watching reviews, when I watched photouniverse on you tube. First one went down ell, but then sharpness was brought into doubt. I understand that a higher pixel count can show up technique flaws, and I probably don't have the best lenses, (apart from the FA50) but is it worth getting the K3 or would be more worthwhile getting a K5ii/iis?
I've been and still do use the K200d, but feel an upgrade is due, and I do like the sound of some of the modern bells & whistles our new er cameras have to offer.

If you watch the rest of his videos, it turns out that the K-3 is plenty sharp if you turn off the auto noise reduction. I guess the K-3 is more aggressive with the noise reduction than the K-5 was.

Having said that, I currently don't plan on upgrading from my K-5 because I don't think I need the improved features of this camera.

Thanks Drugal. I searched a bit more for photouniverse and as far as I can make out he's gonna carry on testing. Seems to be an issue with shake reduction on handheld as its ok on a tripod. Something to keep an eye on. Got plenty of saving to do anyway.
