Lordy, Lordy, such bother about a little techy discussion to prevent or cause a fellow forum member from the dreaded purchase of a K3. Nomadking needs advice that I cannot provide. He is ready to "Not Buy a K3." He seems poised to buy, pause for effect, Canikon. Well I am asking for first right of refusal on Pentax primes, especially his 300!

I won't buy a K3 until I buy the 300mm.
After the Wizard World convention trip, I'm coveting a lens longer than 300mm. I MUST be crazy.

North Carolina north line or south? My daughter is in Winston. Hate it when bad weather hits there. Her husband is Army, active, stationed in Georgia. Sucks that I cannot shovel my Baby's driveway if needed.

My ability to speed read in English is lacking. Used to be pretty good in Finnish. That blueberry can not be helped. No matter what. Not even with theee
K3.

If you had pickled herring you would speed read at 3 times the rate. Unlike the K-3 where no matter how much pickled herring it gets, it cannot speed read at all.

ABBA pickled herring is very palatable. Should be available from your nearest supplier. I highly recommend it as a user.
edit: K3 seals might fail from the dill juice.

I suspect that the K-3 seals might be interested in the herring as well, them being seals and all. In which case they would surely fail and that is good reason to deny Hocir and not buy a K-3.
