A little and a lot. Depends what is important to you. Pixelshift is largest change really. Same tech as K1 uses. A little different sensor. Plus a lot faster AF in AFC (by my observation and by Pentax claims) which makes it even better suited for sports. Also KAf4 support (K3 won't support it according to Pentax but K3 II will) which provides accessibility to new PENTAX-DA 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3ED PLM WR RE lens with pulse motor(better for video). Almost forgot no more on board flash, replaced by GPS unit for ASTRO photography (again similar to K1)
