I'm fond of my DA-21, and its small size and FoV frequently make it my stay-on-the-camera lens. I haven't really gotten an "eye" for it yet, to my great shame...
Get Ricoh GR. Wasn't so fond of the 21 before but since playing with Rioch GR for couple of months, I cannot get DA-21 off K-3. Similar FoV, bigger but with OVF...

Now, I did it. I mentioned forbidden GR in Pentax DSLR thread.

We are Ricoh. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile!

Wonderful photographs as always John. The one with Mr. Stossel looks as though that woman is about to kick his ass. It conveys the emotion of the moment quite well.

Very good timing.

Almost has me pulling the trigger on a K3.

But the bacon grease has my fingers to slick to pull the credit card from my wallet.

Whew!

we need to stop scaring the normal people that are on this thread!
Are their normal people on this thread?? Name a couple! (or one).
I've slipped behind a bit - how did the wedding talk start?
Who decided that images captured with Pentax/Ricoh K3s could be published here?
What is the Mod up to? Is he asleep?

My apologies, I just checked and John's images are K5s.
Nevertheless...what are pictures doing here anyway? What's it got to do the topic?
Come on Parallax, bring this thread to order! (I dare you.)

Let's have a "Like-a-thon" ... Simple suggested rules : Go find an older post in this thread and "like" it for no real reason other than to keep this thread ahead in the "like" category statistics ... also maybe come back and quote the thread that you liked and state openly that you "liked" it again for no real reason other than to keep this thread ahead of the other K-3 threads ... this will add another post as well ... rinse and repeat ... if bottle empties, go out and buy more ... it's time for me to go to bed ... so say "Goodnight", Gracie ... "Goodnight Gracie" ... legends J
Woah, what kind of beast did I roust from its slumber?! Waking up to this makes me afraid of ever going to sleep again!

Now, this is completely off-topic. Or too close to on-topic. Which for this thread is the same thing. This is just a warning but watch your step in the future, ok?

No, wait, Ricoh makes good cameras? You have a K-3?

Too early in the morning, my brain melts.

And that's why...

Sorry, but I thought my simple question was, well, simple. Going to have a bit,of Provolone cheese, stoke the fire and wait for spring. But I cannot buy a K3.

I have the 15, 31, and 40 so I don't need the 21
What's this? Don't need?? This is utter nonsense! Of course you need it. The 15 is simply not complete with it's jewel of a sister.

...but I WANT THE 21. If cost isnt an issue, buy it. Life is short and none of us is going to come out of it alive anyway.
Ah, now we're back on track! Just go ahead and get it. You know your life will be miserable until you do.

Hope this helps!!

That is Swedish
Or Norwegian. Or Danish. But yeah, it's pretty far from Finnish!

Actually, is there anything that isn't? The K-3, perhaps?

Hmmm . . . . . . Mrs. Racer told me it was Norwegian.

Search me, I'm mostly Scottish and French.
Swedish and Norwegian are fairly close They both use that funny A with the circle on top.
