Pentax K-3 Shipping

Ricoh Pentax started shipping its new Pentax K-3 DSLR this week. B&H shows the camera as in stock, but Amazon still mentions a release date of November 15.

The K-3 sports almost 24mp in a tough body with a maximum shooting speed of 8.3 frames per second. Its anti-aliasing filter can be turned off. Its specs put it at or near the top of the current APS-C sensor offerings.

I had hoped to have some hands-on experience with the K-3 at PhotoPlus Expo last week, but for some hard-to-fathom reason Ricoh Pentax didn’t have a booth at the largest photography trade show in the United States.

So, if UPS does its job well I will first lay my hands on one tomorrow. I will shoot with it over the next days and report my experiences here.
