    Burst mode when battery is full (yesterday) is fine....
    I'll do a test w/ mine when the battery goes to 2 bars. Right now it's still on the first charge and it's still full (after over 300 shots and lots of review/menu settings).

    hi ranchy,

    I cropped it just around 5% of the original photo have good composition.
    I used Tamron 90mm di Macro on it.

    Recently I met an ex-Pentaxian, he was telling me he had gave up on Pentax some time ago, I think with Ricoh Imaging , these Exs should be able to be convinced to come back to Pentax DSLR.

    I was testing out the AF of the K3 in low light. I do notice even when i set the AF light assist to on it will not be be turn on in almost pitch black condition. even with external flash attach the AF assist on the flash will not kick in. But the result is that the photo is focus sharp when flash is used. AF light assist is turn on only when using live view under low light, AF speed is much slower without Live View.
    Just my observation

    AF assist will only turn on when you are using the center point.

    Just learn something new, shared by Syncguy, the on-board flash can be set manually.. woot. Another cool feature added.........

    One quick shot while waiting for Doyle to go Garden by the Bay to shoot flowers. However, never knew that it was so low lighted inside, so was not really shooting any flowers.


    In the end busy playing with Start burst with the DA15.. Been awhile that i Last play with it..




    Last 2 normal shots...

    Coming from Kr to K3, I can feel that this is the ultimate DSLR !
    K3 handles bright sunny days and dim evenings extremely well, Love it !
    Even at the Ponggol Jetty the K3 AF locks quick on the jetty rails, even doing manually lights up the focus red square
    Shots all JPEG direct from camera !
