Ok guys. Winning day1 was hard work! The rules say the same poster can't win more than 3 of the daily prizes, so I have no inclination to push myself that hard to again to contribute to meaningful discussion. I'll continue to venture into the rest of the forum, just with a bit less fervor!

Good point! What is your position on cheese, bacon, snow and possums???
Cheese= I'm for it, almost any brand, block, slice, shredded, melted, it's great stuff

Bacon= The food of the gods, especially when added to cheese and possum melt on a cold snowy winter's day!

Snow = It must snow , or I can't enjoy my cheese and possum, with bacon.

Possum = Only necessary if I want to add flavor to my cheese and bacon melt

I won't buy a K-3 until Homer's hydranencephaly is cured. My neurology skills are more limited than my photography skills. Can anyone make a better diagnosis?

Run! The rare on-topic beast rears its head.

In other news, I seriously might have to go see our nurse practitioner tomorrow. I'm ok sitting in one spot, off my tail bones. I'm ok when I'm standing or walking. Going from sitting to standing hurts so bad that my head spins.

Thanks for explaining that other post, dansamy. I really had no idea what Kendosis was talking about. On-topic, BAH!

For that tail bone, sit on one side for a while, then the other. Relieves the boredom very, very slightly.

Wow, that's a pain in the... um... "Ricoh logo". How long do those things usually take to heal?

Like the original poster, I too have had people (clients, usually through facebook messages) scoff when they hear I don't use a Canon Mark iii, I have found that when THOSE clients don't pass me up due to my camera, they make me hate my life. Yeah, it's good for Ricoh to have their name on a great camera like the K-3, Pentax is a funner word to say though, and we all know Pentaxian sounds better than Ricohian.


If you feel self-conscious about your camera, put on a 300mm lens with a hood and walk around a park, kids and teens will berate you with comments like "Whoa! Nice camera!" and "How much did that cost?" Then you'll feel like a pro again.


The internet is changing how people communicate, Wal-Mart and Costco have changed the way people buy. Canon and Nikon are the only changeable lens cameras people see, because most people only look at what's on Wal-Mart shelves and facebook. Those people are not the majority, but they are the loudest complainers. Don't worry, photographers will have bigger problems in five years, we'll forget what name is on our cameras completely.


P.S. There's a guy on my block who took all the "Acura" logos off his car and replaced them with Cadillac logos he bought on eBay, it's only a matter of time before this happens with everything.

If the K-3 said Cadillac on the back, I might buy one.
