Well, it's been fun. I was hoping we'd make 3000 posts by Elvis' (and my) birthday, but Ash is right. This stuff belongs in 'General'. .
I wouldn't give up on it just yet.
Ash is right in that the appropriate place to start a thread of the nature that this one morphed into would have been GT, but this didn't start that way, so for now, carry on.

So you mean this thread almost bought the K-3, but squeaked by to grow ever longer by the assimilation of cheese products?

OK, I think it's now time to get back on topic, y'all. This kind of discussion is best kept in the Pentaxian Lounge/General Talk area.
Ash, sometimes GT on an unrelated thread promotes member loyalty and cohesion. If the thread moves to GT, okay. All the posts will as well.PF is so entertaining and that quality promotes member cohesion. I know this thread has absolutely nothing to do with K3 other than cheese and dachsunds. I also frequent other camera websites, like Cambridge in Colour. PF is more fun and as informative, IMHO.

What will happen to all the people who want to tell us why they won't buy a K-3? One does drop in from time to time.

Following the letter of the law while being totally subversive is fun.
To keep this thread honest, every post should start with why you will or won't buy a K-3! After that you can say anything you want to say!
Example: I wont buy a K-3 because it's -10 and my dog lifted his leg and froze to the fence!

That reminds me of a principal I once worked for. She had a PhD in education but everyone called her Pat... at some point she decided she wanted to be called Doctor Devreaux. She was so insistent, it seemed we had to do something, so in her presence every one called everyone doctor. So I'd walk into the office and any other teacher who happened to be there would say "Dr. Head how are you today." In I'd say "fine Dr. Smith, and how are you?"

Oh ya, and I'm not buying a K3 because I've already got one.

I knew this issue would resolve itself.

(232 post to go in 4 days. Shouldn't be a problem, right?)

I won't buy a K3 this week because the battery will explode when UPS leaves the package on the stoop.

The K3 is a cheese hound camera not designed for harness shooting on dachsunds.

Another thought, I won't buy a K-3 because there might be a Pentax full frame coming... but then again, what if they put out a K-mount FF camera, but it says Ricoh on it and not Pentax?

Have to go, my Merrill Blue Cheese Chilli Dog is home from her walk.

The K3 is the worst Cropped sensor camera ever. except for all the others. And the lens selection is only around 250 F-mount lenses ( help on the number, as I am overwhelmed contemplating old Asahi Pentax MF lenses and want them all in true Lens Lust style). The K3 delivers poor low light focus, except for all the others. And the lack of an AA filter makes the images too clear for my Epson Stylus Photo so I have to upload to B&H and wait for crumpled prints to arrive with belated apologies.

And of course, Aussie shepherd dogs are the cutest little blue eyed maniacs since Bo Derek.

Well, we have 7 days before this thread is 3 months old. Only 459 posts to go to make 3,000. Should be a piece of cake. Cheesecake, of course!


Hmmm. I wonder how bacon cheesecake would taste.................................
Probably as bad as bacon fudge does. But I think my late great dogs would have thought both the fudge and cheesecake tasty with our without the bacon.

Yeah - I was going to buy a K5II for $595 but that little plan sure got messed up. Now I just about have to save my money for Photokina.
