Some shots comparison, so far.
Man, I'm liking the K-70 so much. It's a good example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. I prefer to use it over my K-3 in most situations. Here's quick shot of the Moon from the other morning, 100% crop (DA*300mm):
Still having fun with the K-70. Here's one from this morning with a vintage SMC F 35-70mm mounted, in "Macro" mode... This little lens is a IQ monster- $70
That lens has a pretty image nature to it. We had one in the late 1980's on a Program Plus. That period, 1986-1991, had a good number of nice 35-70mm, compact zooms, some with macro ranges, from various manufacturers. That category kind of replaced the 50mm prime lens as the "normal" lens for a lot of people. It's easy to see why too, looking at this nice closeup.
Of course, this Pentax version is the only one that can be casually mounted on the latest digital APS-C or FF body and expected to be recognized by the camera and function perfectly- and with 5-axis stabilization.
