From DxOMark Conclusion :

With its quasi AA-filter design, the introduction of the Pentax K-3 signals a change in direction from makers offering a choice of models differing only by their filter-design. Not only does it simplify the choice at the time of purchase there is the potential to save money with no real need to buy a second body for the slightly different functionality. If, however, a back up is required (as is usually the case if being used professionally) then the user can benefit from the identical layout and menus, while having two bodies with the same capabilities.
