Pentax K-3II DSLR
24 MP, APS-C Sized CMOS Sensor
Designed for the demanding photographer, the K-3 II features a 24.35 effective megapixel AA Filter-less APS-C sized CMOS sensor for outstanding image quality. The Prime III image-processing engine assures high-quality image output up to ISO 51200.
Safox 11 27-Point AF System
The SAFOX 11 autofocus module maximizes 27 AF sensors and a vast light sensitivity range of –3EV to +18EV. This focus module includes 25 cross sensors and three AF sensors designed to detect the light flux of an F2.8 lens, so it's easy to obtain pinpoint focus on the subject when using a large-aperture lens. The expanded AF area allows for accurate focusing, even on moving subjects.
Built-In GPS Functionality, Electronic Compass
The built-in GPS module extends the range of every photo shooting expedition. Use the electronic compass to help find your way while the GPS Log lets you keep track of where your journey has taken you. Astrotracer functionality is built-in to let you capture celestial objects such as stars, nebulas and planets, without the need of an extra accessory.
Pixel Shift Resolution System
The Pixel Shift Resolution System captures 4 images of the same scene by shifting the image sensor by a single pixel for each image — then synthesizes all 4 into one composite image. The result is exceptional detail and true-to-life color accurate images as this innovative system obtains full RGB information from every pixel. The composite process also effectively reduces image noise in high ISO settings.

Designed for the top performance of the K series, the K-3II provides an array of outstanding features, including high-resolution image reproduction with approximately 24 effective megapixels; a 27-point AF system; high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 8.3 images per second; high-precision exposure control with a newly designed 86,000 pixel RGB light-metering sensor; a new, large, high-resolution LCD monitor, an optical viewfinder with the largest, brightness subject image in its class; and built in GPS and compass with sensor shift for Astro photography in compact form factor. The new AA simulator - a highly innovative function developed specifically for the K-3II - allows the user to effectively minimize moiré without actually installing an optical AA filter in the camera, providing a choice of filtered or filter-free shooting for a given scene or subject. The K-3II also offers pixel shift resolution technology that moves the image sensor unit in minute increments, a single pixel pitch at a time, to capture four shots. Pixel Shift Resolution merges those shots into a single image to generate an ultra high-definition image. This difference makes it excellent for detail and color reproduction, creating super high-definition images. The time-proven dustproof, weather-resistant body construction ensures dependable, flawless performance in the field.

No flash: I don't use the flash as much and saw myself carrying a separate flash unit even when I had the d5300.
GPS: I was skeptical about the GPS on this one. The built in GPS on the D5300 would take about 10 seconds to adjust. So every time the screen turned off it would have to look for the GPS signal and it was a battery killer. The GPS in the K-3ii takes about 2 seconds and doesn't affect the battery as much.
Weather Sealed: I paired it with a 18-55 mm WR lens, I haven't used much the WR since California is currently in a drought but it will come in handy eventually. There aren't many WR lenses available. I use a 35mm prime and would buy a 35mm WR in a heartbeat (50mm WR is available tho)
Lens: Works with every pentax lens. I currently have it paired with an 18-55 WR Pentax, 35mm f/2.4 Pentax, and an old Pentax-M 50mm f/2. All works perfectly, the newer ones focus very fast. The old one doesnt have AF.
Body: Sexy magnesium-alloy body. The style is different from Nikons and Canons, its more squary which I liked.
Viewfinder: Pentaprism, enough said.
CONS: 1. It can't toast toast.
I Love This Camera! Upgraded from a Pentax K-x (now 6 years old)..What an UPGRADE! It's so much quieter, faster and full of amazing technology! It takes such amazing quality pictures! This is actually pushing me to go beyond and improve my understanding and knowledge of photography...how? it does not have the "pre-set scene settings"... Like "Portrait" mode, or "Landscape" mode....Which I started breaking away from on my k-x, that's how it I knew, it was time... Upgrade!
All of my lenses for my K-x fit on this camera and work just fine!
About the recall, the serial number I have does fall below the "622...." number...However, I have had Zero issues with the camera.
I did buy a Nikon a few weeks ago, honestly could not stand the thing! I took it right back to store for a refund!!!
Seller: "Web Offers"
Shipping from this company was BLAZING FAST! Tracking was fantastic too! Fast to respond to inquiries and answer questions! Thank you!
2 of my pictures using the K-3II
Here are 2 pics I took in the last 2 days - 1 is a Sandhill Crane the other a Sunflower.
Yes, there are areas for improvement, I'm not a professional photographer (YET), just a rookie that loves....photography! Hope this is helpful!
If you are on the fence of buying a step above the basic DSLR, this camera is for you. Got to your local store and put your hands on all the piles of Nikons and Cannons that are under 2k, then order this camera and put it in your hands. You'll know immediatly that you made the right decision. Heavy duty magnesium body, weather sealed, built in GPS, and... the one thing hardly anyone mentions when talking about this camera, the built in Astrotracer function!
The Astrotracer makes this camera the best thing ever next to the K1 if you like to take shots at night of the sky, or have any sort of interest in doing it or will ever find yourself in a dark sky location. Once it has a GPS and you go through the positioning calibration which is super quick you can take some amazing long exposure shots of the stars as the camera's sensor will track the movement of the stars. I'm going off memory here, but with the typical 50mm lens you can get up to five minutes of tracking, and with a 300mm around one minute or so. You need dis. Most of the shots I've included here were taken with a old F1.4 manual lens or a 300mm F4.5 Tair 3 lens (Soviet made from the 70's) and a standard ball mount tripod.
