Now that the K-1 is here, is it time for an updated portrait prime?

+1 for the 100mm f/2.8 WR Macro. I'm really not one for portrait photography but I've had other people use my kit and it's produced great results, I'll see if one of the subjects is ok with me posting images of them and put up some examples if they are.

Is an upgrade from a K3 to K1 worth it?

I think this is the best response. It's along the lines of what I tell anyone asking me about cameras, we all know an expensive camera does not magically equal better shots. My thoughts about it is that if you're not dreaming of going pro or anything you should stick to what you have fun with and you can have fun with most any camera, even if you are going down the pro path then nomadkng is on point.

Personally I have an original K5, I love the thing and I am only a hobbyist but I will get a K1 at some point because I do anticipate having a lot of fun with it. My current favourite lens (the 100mm macro) is full frame plus I have a lot of old glass I can use as there's been Pentax cameras in my family for about 50 years or more and I really want to play with those on an FF. By all measurement of skill I do not need a K1 (hell I probably don't need a K5) but I sure will have a lot of fun using it.
If you still enjoy your K3 then stick with it, it should provide more than enough enjoyment to get you to a K1-II or beyond.

I'm not going to lie, I'm usually not one for introduction posts. But hey, I need to PM someone and I've been lurking on this site for at least 5 years so why the hell not :)

I'm a 3rd generation Pentaxian, inheritance aside I simply like Pentax gear more anyway. I know the K mount has cause complications over the years but I love that they still stick with it. There's a really nice feeling to be able to grab a random old lens, chuck it on a DSLR and just go out play.
I'm too much of a perfectionist for my own good and fall into the classic trap of altering a Lightroom scroller by one tick back and forth for hours. Anyway, this might motivate me to go back to the thousands of raws that I have lying about and crank out a few more :lol:

Oh my, there's no edit post button... looks like my grammar is going to turn out far more trash than usual around here ;)
