snmpwalk v3 don't bring less information then v1/v2c

So when whe do

>snmpwalk -v2c -c <string> <1p>

on router we get all the details.

When we use snmpwalk -v3 we only get some sort of high level review.
or at most I could see these things::

sysObjectID sysObjectID OBJECT-TYPE
sysUpTime sysUpTime OBJECT-TYPE
sysContact sysContact OBJECT-TYPE
sysysNamesName sysName OBJECT-TYPE
sysLocation sysLocation OBJECT-TYPE
sysServices sysServices OBJECT-TYPE

by using their name, eg sysObjectID or sysName.

If I give one of the oid i get from v2c for example speed of an interface, as an argument to snmpget v3, v3 don't recongnze it and bring back error

" IF-MIB::ifType.239 = No more variables left in this MIB View (It is past the end of the MIB tree)
