Specifically, the first-of-its-kind selectable anti-aliasing simulator is garnering attention for an optional function that, prior to the K-3, required two separate cameras to achieve. But in my short time with this camera it became clear that it’s not just the anti-aliasing filter option that makes the K-3 a camera worth talking about.

Fast Zoom Lenses for DSLR Cameras

Practically every manufacturer has its own lineup of fast zoom lenses. These lenses have apertures of f/2.8 or larger, making them useful even in low-light conditions. They also feature fixed apertures and will maintain their speed through the entire zoom range. In the photographer's hands, they have the potential for superb image quality in a variety of scenarios.
