Pentax K3, May 2014

December 29, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Soon after returning from Tokelau my Pentax K5 camera died, and was not economic to repair.

I was about to head to the USA and UK in May 2014, and so I decided to buy a Pentax K3 at B&H in New York.

I then used the camera around New York for the few days I was there, and during my subsequent vacation in the UK.

I have been enjoying the extra capability of the Pentax K3 over the K5 - 24MP resolution, no AA filer - it is a very capable camera.

While at B&H I also purchased a Pentax HD DA 55-300mm f4-5.6 WR lens - primarily for the water resistance.  I have been very happy with this lens and it lives in my travel bag.  It is a very good compromise between image quality, light weight, and zoom range for travel.  I subsequently sold my non WR DA 55-300 lens when I got back to New Zealand.
