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

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

Swedish and Norwegian are fairly close They both use that funny A with the circle on top.
that's a lens, not a circle. It's the new Sony Alpha.

Already have the K30. Do not need the FL of the Lenses you list. I love my K30 and am aware of its shortcomings vs. the K3. Hence the reason for my Help query:"do I need a single lens (21mm Ltd) or a new camera body (K3) to cover my daughter's wedding, not interfering with the pro, no flash.

Again, I already have 15mm Ltd, 35 Ltd Macro, 50 mm Sigma f.1.4, 70mm Ltd, 18-135 andm55-300 zooms. I am looking for advice,from you who have actually shot a wedding as a Participant.
You might try asking this straight out on its own thread, rather than in this sausage....

I haven't shot a wedding, but I have shot a funeral and some graduations, do these count? I would not hesitate to use my (daughter's) K-30 at all, and I'd save my money re. K-3. Heck, I'd trade my D600 for the K-30 with my daughter for the shoot. Myself, I'd shoot with my 43 ot 70, but that's because that's what I have. Up to you whether you think you have a significant hole between 15 and 35mm. With a full frame I'd stick to a 50mm and maybe an 85. I shot my son's funeral reception with a MX+50/1.7+Tri-X and that was fine.

Nothing wrong with the K-30. I would prefer a 21 over the 15 as a companion to the 35 and 50 for a wedding. Maybe even more happy with a 16/17-50 f2.8, though.

The main thing is, of course, you always need another lens. Always.

*cough*

But an Å is no more an A than an O or an X is. Or a K for that matter

And then we have, depending on which language we're on, the æ, ä, ø, and ö. Who's got the Æ mount?!

And the O with a slash through it that means "you can't pronounce this"...

That would be Danish/Norwegian.

And you can pronounce it. It's pretty much the sound you would make if you should smell the well used gym socks that hid in your bag for a week.

Nu orkar jag inte läsa alla inlägg som refererar till Skandinaviskt språkbruk och dess alfabet men ett litet smakprov på äkta svensk Ölandsmat eller Norrlandsmat kanske vore på sin plats för övandet i våra tre sista vokaler; Å, Ä och Ö då dessa torde höras i överflöd när kroppkakor och surströmming ställs fram på bordet.

/Cheers

I was born in Åbo,,,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surstr%C3%B6mming

QuoteQuote:
When opened, the contents release a strong and sometimes overwhelming odour; the dish is ordinarily eaten outdoors. According to a Japanese study, a newly opened can of surströmming has one of the most putrid food smells in the world, even more so than similarly fermented fish dishes such as the Korean Hongeohoe or Japanese Kusaya.[4]

Well, I'm not sure reading every post here is advisable if you want to hold on to (whatever's left of) your sanity

I'll pass on surströmming, thank you very much. Give me some blåbærsyltetøy instead!

Ah, I knew Norwegian and Danish had the O with a slash, but couldn't remember if Swedish did. Should have looked it up.

Maybe it means "no Swedes".

Or else, maybe it's what the fox says...
