I've used the Sony A7, Nikon D610, Canon 6D, Pentax K3 and I like the Pentax K3 best. Compact and the controls are fantastic.


It would be nice if the K3 came in a similar sized cam with FF 36 mp sensor and it had an option to order the cam with a shutter speed dial to replace the program dial (old school style) but those are the only changes I'd make...love it as-is!


If no FF can be made in similar size, then the 24MP model is fine for me. It is an outstanding blend of size, quality and performance in a bargain priced package.
I'm sorry, but it seems you didn't read all the posts. You should talk sense elsewhere. Here we mostly discuss the basic food groups (bacon, cheese, coffee, single malt whiskies, and lutefisk) in order not to stray too far away from the OP.

That said, you probably just set a new record for most sensible post of the thread. Shame on you!

Or professionals?

In all honesty I believe both, err, mispellings are correct.

Then again, English ain't my language
Evidently It ain't mine either!

The forgetting process involves lots and lots and lots of beer... Or whiskies if you prefer those

Thanks, definitely prefer whiskies for this use. But I suspect the process will have to be repeated numerous times. Some things are harder to forget than others.

A sign from my trip along the Great Ocean Road (Victoria, Aust);



It underlines the number of tourists that use this road.
I missed getting the sign that said to keep away from the unstable cliffs and..."you will DIE"
