Returned...after 3 years!

I recently bought a K70 after using a variety of different cameras and systems, including FF, over the past 3-4 years. The reason I bought the K70 was that a look back at some of my best images over time revealed that the majority were shot with the Pentax K3, even though I'd shot many more images with my Nikon D7100, Nikon D810 and Olympus OMD EM1. I couldn't find a mint or new K3 anywhere so settled for the K70. Images from it were great but despite its performance, it did not feel as solid in my hands, the flip screen seemed a little flimsy and the live view auto focus, with all my lenses was poorer than I remember it being with the K3. This week a brand new K3 with the 18-135mm lens became available for 500! I sold the K70 for 400 and got it!! I am in love once again with the K3 - even though I've not had the opportunity to take any images with it. It just feels perfect in my hand, as if made just for me. Hopefully will be taking pics this weekend and shall report back!!

Been Pentaxless for a couple of years, using some M43 gear, but after looking back at some of my older K5 and K3 images decided to buy another Pentax again last week. Got a brand new K70 for 400 and WOW!!! The images from it are by far the best I've ever taken and so far they are all jpegs straight from the camera! Looking forward to trying some of the new features and playing with some RAW files. I thought I would need to use a K1 to get better images than those I got with my K3, but this K70 just blows it away. Great camera IMHO. :)

The best I've used

I think most of us would agree that most if not all modern digital cameras are capable of producing a very good image in the right hands? Over the past 6 years I've used a Nikon D3300, Nikon D7100, Nikon D810, Fujifilm XT20, Fujifilm XT2, Pentax K3, Olympus OMD EM1, Olympus OMD EM1ii, Panasonic Lumix GX8 and now the Pentax K70. All were capable, some more so than others, but far and away the best, especially with regard to the most important things to me - dynamic range, low light capability and ergonomics - is the K70! I'd heard good things about it, but it has really blown me away. When I think back to the cost of my new D810 kit (body & 1 prime = 3200), then consider the cost of my new K70 & 1 prime - 490, this has to be the best value DSLR on the market? My experience reveals that there is NOTHING, that I need, that the K70 cannot do equally or better than the D810 or the Fuji XT2. Truly amazing!!!
