K3-2 and infrared remote.

Hi all, my new K3-2 should arrive tomorrow from Adorama. One question. Will my Pentax infrared remote work with it that I use for my K5? Can't wait to get this thing! What do you consider to be the best new feature coming from a K5?

Yes, the same IR remote is compatible with all Pentax bodies that have that feature. I am using the one from my K10D with my K3ii (remote F). Enjoy your new camera!

Agreed, it should. I have resorted to using my smart phone using DSLR Remote app.

Best feature up from a k-5 - the sensor, even tho K-5's and its progeny was very nice.
