In a DSLR market often dominated by Canon and Nikon, the Pentax K-3 is a stand out option that delivers on multiple fronts. For starters, the K-3 excels in the optics department, earning high marks from nearly every critic that reviewed it. Pocket-Lint says the K-3's "stills performance is excellent," and PC-Mag finds it "delivers outstanding image quality in the most difficult lighting situations." Video quality wasn't as well received, but the K-3 still holds its own with DigitalCameraReview saying the "video image quality is good." And while the design of the K-3 is nothing to get excited about, it still has a weather-sealed body to protect it from the elements. On the inside, the K-3 is no slacker, with Digital Trends finding it "extremely responsive ... it never felt like it slowed us down." If you're shopping for a new camera, the Pentax K-3 is definitely worth your time and attention, thanks to its excellent image quality and snappy performance.
