Hmm... There's a dude selling his 645D for about $700 less than what I'll have to pay for a new K-1. Actually, with the DFA55/2.8 thrown in it's still not much more than just the K-1 body. Damn...

Hey, this is not really gear talk! It's just one more reason not to buy a K-3.

I think.



I need to stop visiting the local market places. And the non-local market places.

Are you asleep, or what?


Too much bacon?

I doubt he would ship abroad. Besides, I should mention that the K-1 is about $2400 over here.

And therein lies the problem - would I really actually use the thing? I'm mostly ok with lugging my K-...umm, let's say K-5 and small primes around, but there's a reason I got that GR. A 645D is, what, 3 lbs? And the smaller lenses about 1 lb? Then you need a tripod fashioned from pure sturdy. Put together that's quite a load. I can spend a couple of grand on new equipment, but I need to be confident I will indeed make use of it before I dump that kind of money on a system.
