Wow! I am impressed. You are right about that. Because of this trait, some biologists have speculated that elephants evolved out of sea mammal ancestors . . .

hhmm...

what would the k-3 look like? something like LX:


or MZ-D:


I got the pictures from the net.

though the specs (and price) will be the reason why people would buy it, i just don't see that many people talking how they would like it to more or less look like. I've seen a lot of posts about complaining that k7 and k5 is too small for their fingers. would a bigger, and most likely heavier, camera work for you? if so, how big should it go to be acceptable since people with smaller hands would have problems if the camera is "too" big.

Where I come from we're taught no deodorant, no toothpaste, no scented foot powder, no scented soap comes on a backcountry Trek at all. Every scented thing in every backpack goes up a tree in a Bear Bag first-thing into a campsite. If you even put flavored drink mix in a Nalgene bottle, the bottle is forever a "smellable" and has to go up the tree in a bag at night. Of course all foodstuffs go up. Woe be to the person who brngs anything smellable into a tent!!

Most Western (world) diets are so high in sugar that it causes some of the worst dental problems in the world; and also a few body organ issues. There are less developed (third world) cultures that have significantly fewer health issues than america does due to items such as this. And even make due without toothpaste as it is known in the west.

Well, since you mention it, a drug formulation we were transferring to an eastern market had to have the coating of the tablet "thinned" due to known metabolic differences. Less cheeseburgers/high fructose corn syrup = Less Acid in the stomach to dissolve the coating....

No K-3 to prove it though.

I have used Neem tree twigs as toothbrushes. Very effective in preventing periodontal diseases and recommended by dentists.

OK all, let's not stray from the original discussion - or it might just end there...

I would love to see an MX based FF mirrorless.

What are the odds that the K-30 is the new top of the line APS-C body for Pentax and the K-3 will sport the new 24MP FF sensor?

what are the odds that Pentax can take that same 24 mp Sony sensor and replicate what they did with the k-5? Making it outperform even the k-05?
