Just as well she didn't sharpen knives for a living!
After she sharpened them she would have had to give them back to their owners... unless she started taking her work home, it could have worked out better.

When I was a kid I did help my father make ammunition. You know, casting bullets, using a Lee (or was it RCBS?) press for sizing and loading etc.

I tried not to tick him off

I have been waiting for the announcement of the k3 for some time.Now that the camera is out and seeing the pics and seeing "ricoh on the back of the screen turns me off.Only a matter of time before we see Ricoh on the front of the camera.I think ricoh just shot themselves in the foot.My reasoning behind this is I make a living in photography.I shoot lots of weddings and It seems more people ask on what camera I'am using.I have had quite a few people turn me down because I shoot with pentax.They just know canon and nikon.I l was turned down on other major sporting events because I shoot with Pentax.This all happened a few years back and I will admit that some people are starting to recognize that pentax can keep up with the big guys.If Ricoh puts their name in front of the camera I feel it will throw them back to the dark ages..I'am quite happy with my k5s and all my pentax glass and will continue to shoot pentax,but hesitating to by new equiptment because of this matter.I do also own nikon and canon slr's but I'am a pentaxian and as long as it says Pentax on the front of the camera I'am happy.

Mod disclaimer: this thread has turned into a humorous discussion and it no longer reflects facts about the Pentax K-3 DSLR. Enter and post at your own risk, and have fun!

You do realize that in quoting the OP you are dangerously close to initiating serious discussion of things other than bacon, beer and cheese, and there for at risk of being tossed out of the thread. All posts that even appear to refer to the original post are discouraged.

Posters are softening up their wet noodles right now getting ready to flog you.

Well, that's not a problem; but he forgot to bring bacon or cheese when he came back.

OK ... this post is zeds' fault.

I went to my B&M store this weekend and handled a K-S2.

Not bad. Not bad at all ... and that's "why I won't buy a K-3" tm

I have made the decision to start hunting squirrels.

If those squirrels are so accustomed to being fed then it's going to be ridiculously easy to poison them.
Don't poison them. They might crawl somewhere in or under your house and die.

For the record, the K-S2 has a HUGE Pentax logo on the back...

The hociR's wiles are boundless, but we know its intents.
