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!
One of the reasons for getting the K-3II was pixel shift capability. I must say that I am amazed by the increased resolution and dynamic range. I have done recently HDR in conjunction with pixel shift. The results were just jaw dropping. Viewing at 100% on a 27" 2560X1440 monitor, it is still sharp with incredible details. This is the kind of sharpness and micro-contrast that I have only seen produced by high resolution medium format cameras. A benefit from this revelation is that my lenses are still keeping well with the sensor, no need to upgrade.
This is my 8th Pentax dSLR, replacing a K-5IIs and a K-S2. The out-going cameras are still fine tools, but no comparison to the K-3II. The fit-and-finish of the K-3II is the best, very solid, substantial but not heavy or too big. The shutter is incredibly soft, quiet and smooth. K-5 & K-5IIs already have excellent shutter, but K-3II again is better.
AF is much improved over previous models. Some AF fine adjustments were necessary for all previous models; however, none is needed for lenses tested so far - 16-85, 50-135, Sigma 70-200 OS. AF is fast and confident on these 3 lenses. Resolution is incredible; I was not prepared when I saw the fine details.
Aug 7 2016 update
Just finished a long overseas vacation. Local weather was hot and humid, the camera performed flawlessly. AF with 16-85 was fast, secure and accurate. I am very familiar with the Sony 16 MP in K-5 series, but this 24 MP sensor is just stunning. There is at least one stop of highlight headroom when using RAW. Dynamic range is also excellent, with easy 3 stops shadow recovery. I never realize how useful the GPS was until now. I can easily pin point the exact location of where an image was taken. Finally, I did try the pixel shift function. It actually works quite well for static subjects. SR on this camera is definitely improved over that of K-5 series.
Unless you have extra money you don't know what to do with it, this camera represents the best APS DSLR and the best value also. Highly recommended.
