K3 noise problem.

Since I have had the K3 camera I too was one of those not happy with noise issue's. I have tried not to shoot at high ISO. I did not like the images above 400 ISO. Just lately it started to get worse. Very intermittent. I was not happy with the focusing recently has well. I did a few tests and thought it was me when I hand held the camera. On the tripod not to bad. It also got me thinking about if the antishake mode was working when hand held.
I gave the camera a shake in all directions.Since the shake the picture's are the best they have been since I got it. I took some photographs today using the tripod and worked my way up the ISO rang to 10000 ISO. Even at this setting I could get rid of the noise in Lightroom. I think the sensor must have been sitting out of line or sticking and the shake has freed it off.

Wow, strange. Never heard of that behavior before, but I guess it makes sense that it could happen.
Nice that you found a fix. Hopefully it won't repeat itself.
