Pentax K-3 Review

Available Kits

The Pentax K-3 is available in two different colors: there's the standard black edition in addition to a "premium" silver version limited to 2000 units worldwide.  Pentax typically offers a special edition of each of their flagship cameras.  Almost all of the silver K-3 kits have already been sold as of the publication of this review.

Body Only

Price: $1299

  • Black K-3 body
  • Standard accessories

Pentax K-3 with 18-135mm

18-135mm WR Lens Kit

Price: $1649

Pentax K-3 Silver

Premium Silver Edition

Price: $1599

  • Silver K-3 body
  • Silver D-BG5 grip
  • Special leather strap
  • Standard accessories

Apart from the two body-only kits, the K-3 only comes in a single lens kit with the 18-135mm weather sealed lens.  The traditional 18-55mm kit is no longer offered due to low sales volumes: but that's good, as the 18-135mm lens is more versatile and has silent autofocus.
