there are many factors for service and I have been using KR from quite long time and small issues like battery slot spring,eye cup issue, lcd crack and pentax lens ring issue which i faced, so sometime i it takes months to get the to get it repaired and cost of courier is much higher than repair :eek: ! it's little sad that we dont have a store to visit and try camers,lens of k mount. :mad:

I am aware that K1 rating is same as A7III and I am one of the few in my country who are using Pentax despite 1 service center for the entire country !
. but Pentax service availability in one of the biggest concern in India and lens availability too we don't get much of used lens like in other countries and have to invest on new lens which are expensive and there is a waiting period ;). These are the few concerns making me to thinking of switching to different brand and hence i wanted to know from this forum about similar experiences from others.

Thanks for the positive responses. i am waiting for the next apsc camera from Pentax hopefully it will satisfy my requirements.

with the new monster adapter coming in, i am thinking of shifting from KR to A7III. Since i shot more of portraits and low light photography and with no service center available in my city its getting difficult to stick to pentax going further.

For me "articulating screen, Wifi, lighter weight." something making me lean towards it. Also the price of k70 for Black friday is going down to 500$ (Approx) so feeling to buy it.

how is the lowlight performance of k-70 compared to k3 ? considering fourm ratings for K70 =8.3 and K3=8.8
