Our Verdict

Reviews throughout the internet echo what a resounding success the updated flagship camera is. Combining the K-3 Mark III body in black, with the dedicated battery grip and spare battery makes sense, particularly after selling out of the limited edition kits. It does take a photographer who loves shooting with a DSLR to appreciate the K-3 Mark III as it is a hefty DSLR sized body with an optical viewfinder after all. But many of us still do and Pentax has made sure their latest model comes with numerous advantages, including incredibly extensive weather sealing, a 300,000 rated shutter life, excellent 12fps high speed shooting and even 4K movies now.

Whilst the battery included with the camera is rated for 800 shots on a full charge which is excellent, having double that shooting power with a grip works better for a lot of shooters. The camera can also charge using USB-C which is convenient. Whilst Pentax isn’t the largest camera brand in the UK it has a dedicated following of photographers who can now also shoot high quality movies too. Add in the broad range of high quality lenses for K-mount and a camera packed with features for any situation, and we think they may be on to something really rather good.
