What caught my eye first is the boys shadow to the right / his back. It looks as it is copied and carried out. You can see the colouring of his clothing mirrored in the shadow. Clearly that can't be natural, so that puts questions marks on the rest also (?)

This is probably a great deal for someone in Sweden...

78,000 SEK is equal to about 8,700 USD

New sensor in K3?

Thanks, I looked at some other Ricoh/pentax sites and it looks like the US site shows 23.35 and others (UK, Canada, France etc.) show 24.35.
I guess my problem was that it is hard to get an image size of 6016x4000 from only 23.35MP.
24.06MP from 24.35MP is probably much easier...

and, someone should probably update the US webpage....

New sensor in K3?

Well.... I think the other two gave you a pretty good answer....
However, Since you have no information pertaining to my actual question in your answer(?)
I will point out that you should probably check your facts before you attack me personally! To quote myself "is the older one better or worse than the new one?"

is it BETTER or WORSE.... So to sum it up, all you provided was an unfounded thought and an irresponsible answer.

If there has been a change and the (wait, just calling my lawyer to form sentence correctly) alleged (by me) sensor and/or parts and/or other components (not stating that there has been a change but if) is/are not the same. Would it be better to purchase an used older body or a brand new, newer body?

Although now i realize that instead of calling the lawyer i could have ordered a K3 instead for the same amount of money, with or without the new (alleged) sensor.... hindsight is 20/20 i guess :D

New sensor in K3?

Well the actual MP is 24.71 not 24.35 or 24.4. So if the actual MP is 24.71 and the effective is 23.35 where did the 24.35-24.4 number come from that many sites and press releases refer to?

---------- Post added 02-22-15 at 08:27 AM ----------

I guess not a bid deal regardless. It's just the conspiracy theorists in me that thinks they have put cheaper parts in to get higher profits...

Yeah, probably.

I was thinking that it could be possible that they have changed some parts in the camera compared to when it was released to get the price down?
I have seen the two different numbers used a few times now. and since it has happened on more than one site I wonder if the effective MP was 24.35 when the camera was released and now it is 23.35 due to components change? or something like it?

Here is an example of the 24.4 number used for K3: (Amazon)

Max Resolution 24.4 megapixels

and from the announcement...

Pentax has announced a new APS-C sized digital SLR camera with a 24.3MP CMOS sensor. The Pentax K-3 Digital SLR Camera takes its place atop the Pentax DSLR lineup with its high-resolution sensor, in-camera image stabilization

According the the Ricoh site this should then be either 24.71 or 23.35 ?

I'm probably reading to much in to this but to me it looks like parts were charged at some point to get the price of the body down and or profits up?

Prestige model:

Actual: 24.71 Megapixel
Effective: 24.35 Megapixel

K3 model

Actual: 24.71 Megapixel
Effective: 23.35 Megapixel

So it is a missprint in the specs for each camera?

Hi,

Im looking to upgrade to possibly a K3. Am i missing something or did the sensor change in the K3 recently?

B&H lists the K3 as 23.35 MP and the prestige model as 24.35 MP

So did Pentax put a new sensor in and is the older one better or worse than the new one?

or am i just tired and confused :confused: ???

Thanks

Andreas

How many deferred purchases because of FF announcement?

I have held off buying k3 because I wanted to see what Ricoh Pentax vision for the future was. Now I feel that with the innovation once again part of Pentax dna we will see some new legacy products come out. I'm ready to invest in a new body and the k3 will be a great first step as the price is really good now. In a few years I might upgrade to full frame as half of my lenses are ff, I guess time will tell. But Ricoh Pentax has given me inspiration to stay with the brand for a long time to come!

Don't get me wrong, I love the 77mm also, the colours it produces are amazing. I think what it comes down to is just the focal length for me on the APS-C. i just don't find that I shoot in that range very often. Whereas I find much more use for the 60-250, in the 60 and 135-200 range.

Since I received my 31mm ltd it rarely leaves the camera. But on a $1200 budget that would be it... A set of used da* lenses could be a good idea. I am probably downsizing to three lenses in total my self and will keep my 15mm ltd, 31mm ltd and the da* 60-250mm.
