LOVING the K3ii

Amazing how little physically things have changed from the K5, but WOW what a responsive camera. Just th first few test shots so far, but wow..and the autofocus system is light-years ahead.

Love it - amazing, Pentax. I can't WAIT for my new lenses to arrive!

16-85, 60-250, 10-17. Limited trio (21-40-70). I'm holding off on the 12-24 as there's a new one coming, probably with internal motors and weather sealing (just a guess).

Agreed. I had the k5 before and the difference is night and day.

I can see the difference in my insect shots, the lack of AA filter is noticeable. I got accustomed to the K5's focusing using the center point, and mostly that behaves the same way with the K3II. The motor is a lot faster, though, that's nice.

I'm quite happy with the K3II purchase.

The DA* 60-250mm f4 is my favourite lens ever! And the 16-85 mm is no slouch either. While it's not a fast lens aperture-wise, it's a great walk about lens, and very sharp.
