It's about time I upgraded...

After being a Pentaxian for as long as I can remember. I finally upgraded since it has become a business need. My k1000 and Kx finally has a newer big brother. As much as I wanted the new K1, I needed a camera now for this weekend's event. I'll get the K1 later for sure. I'm giddy like a kid who is about to get a toy they've been wanting. Haha. Anyways.. I couldn't beat the steal I just got. Got the 20-40 limited since I already have 18-55, 40, 50, 77, and 55-300. And the K3 price new was awesome.

Dang after I posted this. The $596 K3 sold out. There was 4 left after I bought. Now the lowest cost K3 is $609. Still cheap but I thought it was funny.

Congratulations on your K3 - it's a fantastic camera, you'll be amazed at how capable it is. Nice choice on the lens, too... the 20-40 is very versatile and a pleasure to use

I'm still seeing 596.99 as the price for the K-3.

Congratulations on new camera and lens I'd love to have that combination myself.

Me too $596.99 with Prime shipping.

Great deal for new K-3. Only $100 more than a used one. I almost jumpped on this but decided to wait a bit since my K-5ii and K-5iis are still going strong. Maybe in the fall Ill see a deal i cant refuse.

Yeah. It appears to have returned at $596.99. It did sell out for the day it seems but is now back. Great price regardless. Guess a few others enjoyed the price too. Will definitely enjoy the new camera and lens.

Got to test out the K3 and 20-40mm limited along with my FA77 limited. Suffice to say I love my new toy. I really wanted to see how the K3 fares in low/dim lighting. Here's a couple of shots untouched direct from camera raw to jpeg and resized to fit pentaxforums.com requirements in XnView version 2.33
