Evening Walk with Pentax K-3 III

I started evaluating cameras that I love to use, but with thoughts about what I hope to photograph in the future.  After having been playing with a micro 4/3 camera, the Olympus E-M5 III, I decided to try the new Pentax K-3 III after I was finally able to get one to try.

One of my potentially future uses will require pushing low light capabilities so I took the K-3 III with the 20-40mm limited lens for a walk in the evening as it was getting dark.  I was surprised to see and hear fireworks in the distance.  I captured a burst in the center above the horizon in the third picture.  In the last picture I liked the goose silhouette as well as the colors of the reflections, etc.  

The Pentax DSLR exceeds micro 4/3 camera capabilities under these lower light conditions.  Based on these results along with some other comparisons and considerations, I decided to return the Olympus camera and lens.
