Good one!

It is helping keep the K3 off my list.

Thank you.

Ash said he was going to close or move the thread because it was off topic, so we had to stay on topic for a few pages, or at least end our posts with why we didn't want to buy a K-3. We did it for the good of the thread, please don't punish us too severely but if a price must be paid, we'll pay it gladly and without regret (or probably remorse.).
Yes, he and I had a PM or two about that. Ash is one of the most level headed, rational people I know; but even he is subject to an err in judgement once in a while.
I'll overlook on-topic stuff for now, as long as it doesn't start taking over. I just hate to see a thread with so much wisdom and useful information as this get mucked up by camera talk. C'mon, there are photography forums for that, dontchaknow.

Wait.......... wut? Oops, nevermind..............................................................................................

Wow this thread has been completely derailed! On another note, I WILL be buying a k-3. take it and run with it!
Pity...are you sure we can't dissuade you? A bit of cheese perhaps to calm the compulsion? Remember, Hocir is not your destiny.

I dont understand the hate behind the K-3.
We love the K-3, but if we buy one with Hocir on the back, Tokyo will be destroyed. It is kind of obvious, really.

I live in California, The holy land for American Micro breweries!
There are folk in Portland that would argue that assertion vigorously. It is hard to find a watering hole in Stumptown that is NOT a microbrewery!

Try bacon.

The real Canadian bacon, peameal bacon.

It is the only way to facilitate a K3 intervention!

I don't know what I was thinking when I posted number 22 in this thread. Obviously I was a much more serious guy back then.

Yup, I have (or had!) the same problem. Sad but true...

The Iowa Bacon Festival was last weekend. Two couples were married beneath a standing archway formed by fried bacon strips. The photo was on the Internet, so it must be true. I cannot buy a K3 until eight foot long bacon is available in Whole Foods Market and Walmart.

I am still serious, but am now seriously concerned about Hocir (and Tokyo too...)
