Hi. I'm looking to upgrade my ageing k-5 body
I don't have the lenses to go full frame yet so I'm thinking that the k-3 ii is probably the best option.

If anyone has one they are thinking of selling then please get in touch.

Thanks.

Don't let the lack of fancy, expensive lenses put you off FF (expensive enough on its own!). I can't afford them either but I have a great collection of A series, FA series and manual M42s - some of which will give the four figure Self Destruct Motorised things a good run for their money - and they are dirt cheap.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Cheers.

How are you getting on with it, are you ahving fun? I bought a K3 ii the other day and I'm delighted except I dont think the AF is as good at tracking birds as my k5 iis was. Regards David

really enjoying it. it's a decent step up from my aging k5 (which i think had a different focusing system to the k5ii)
focusing was my main gripe with my previous body and my primary reason for upgrading, and i'm getting much better hit rates with the k3.
also, it just feels like a more premium bit of kit, buttons feel a lot crisper and more positive, screen info is nicely set out, and despite the minor changes in controls it still feels familiar.

this was my last effort of sticking with pentax before selling up and moving to a different brand, but i think it has me convinced to stay a while longer.
