Our Verdict

Pentax is committed to the DSLR experience and have striven to upgrade their flagship APS-C crop sensor camera to demonstrate this passion. The K-3 Mark III has been completely overhauled and oozes pro quality from the aluminium casing which is weather sealed in 95 points to the brand new back illuminated sensor inside. Pentax cameras are known for delivering exceptional image quality when combined with K-mount lenses offering an immersive shooting experience and this new camera brings precisely those qualities.

Camera tech moves at lightning speeds and Pentax has once again packed a generous number of features into the K-3 Mark III to impress even the most tech-savvy user. Whether it’s low light capabilities or high speed shooting the camera keeps up with the best of them. User ergonomics and customisation are also key to Pentax’s ethos and users will find 10 different programmable buttons and five individual program functions to streamline their workflow. DSLR’s are renowned for outdoor photography whether it be landscapes, street or travel and the K-3 Mark III delivers robust usability in any environment, including a shutter rated at 300,000 shots.

Anyone producing videos has been well catered for with crisp 4K movies at 30p along with 60p Full HD. Numerous ports are available for audio control and the bright LCD provides clear access to controls and previews. We are thrilled to see such an accomplished flagship camera from Pentax and are sure it will be a massive success with their DSLR users.
