"Scandinavian cooking" is an oxymoron. As a half Norwegian and half Finnish lover of French and Italian cuisine, I can say without contradiction from my sisters that the best Scandinavian cooking involves lefse, butter and brown sugar. IMHO.
Don't forget pickled herring!

If you click the third button at the bottom right hand of a post you cand do a multi-quote and reply to multiple posts at once instead of making 4 posts back-to-back.

What does that have to do with anything?!?

Now, if that ain't a reason for not getting a K-3, well, nothing is.
Hey, we were up late last night posting on some camera forum and drinking beer.

I don't buy that very often because when I do I eat the whole jar in one sitting. Small jar, medium jar, quart, it doesn't matter. Don't stand between me and a salad bar that has pickled herring on it.

I can hardly stand the suspense; waiting to see if you survived. Surely the human body can't take that kind of abuse!!??!
It's actually been probably a decade since we've had a winter with as many hard freezes as we've had this month alone.

It is good stuff. Salmon done that way too.

Mrs. Racer's family is from Norway, and every Christmas the home made pickled fish is plentiful.

And very tasty!

Did I ever mention what great m0UlAt0r you are?

Still won't make me want a K3 though.

Beaver does not come cheap. Suck it up. Do you have any idea how much it costs to train a beaver?
Of course I'll pay up! Have you seen the teeth of those things?!

I have been waiting for the announcement of the k3 for some time.Now that the camera is out and seeing the pics and seeing "ricoh on the back of the screen turns me off.Only a matter of time before we see Ricoh on the front of the camera.I think ricoh just shot themselves in the foot.My reasoning behind this is I make a living in photography.I shoot lots of weddings and It seems more people ask on what camera I'am using.I have had quite a few people turn me down because I shoot with pentax.They just know canon and nikon.I l was turned down on other major sporting events because I shoot with Pentax.This all happened a few years back and I will admit that some people are starting to recognize that pentax can keep up with the big guys.If Ricoh puts their name in front of the camera I feel it will throw them back to the dark ages..I'am quite happy with my k5s and all my pentax glass and will continue to shoot pentax,but hesitating to by new equiptment because of this matter.I do also own nikon and canon slr's but I'am a pentaxian and as long as it says Pentax on the front of the camera I'am happy.
Your portfolio is what should get you business, not the branding off your equipment. That said, long live PENTAX !!

My thoughts exactly, where's the RICOH?

Last night I had a dream where I was with Taylor Swift back stage before a Paul McCartney concert - she was going to sing with him... When Paul stepped into a room things started to get mighty tense, so I asked Taylor if it was like this before her concerts... she said not really, she had more people and goofing around. Then Paul came back, saw my Spotmatic, and said 'Oh, we used those back when we was Fab! You know I'm a vegetarian now so I hope you don't have a K-3 somewhere..."

And that's why I won't get a K-3
