A moment of silence for the dear departed. I fear that he may well be one of the hordes who blindly mob Tokyo on the day of its destruction.

K-3 with free kit lens? K-3 with FA 31 Limited? Inquiring minds want to know.

Nah, it's worse than that. The people eating the stuff seem to think aquavit is the thing that can sufficiently numb your mind to enjoy the meal...

Now I need a drink!

But not a K-3.

Well, you can't say that's not a good reason not to buy a K-3! (Triple negative, yeah)

The 15 ltd is a beaut btw.

I have had this fight with myself for the past 2 months on what to buy, it came down to the 15 LTD, the DA 12-24(Still may buy) or the sigma 10-20 3.5

All I have ever heard is good things about the 15 LTD so it won out in the end.

Haven't tried the 12-24, but having the 15 and 10-20 4-5.6 I almost never use the Sigma. 10mm is great fun, but the size of the thing means it stays at home most of the time.

Which means I won't buy a K-3.

Now, there you see what happens to your mind when you eat lutefisk.

Sad. So sad.

How could anyone think to ruin perfectly good brine with ice?!

Well, that put me off the K-3 for a good long time

A k-3 and 15 ltd... that's going to open the door for some fun shooting...

Same with my Sigma 8-16, I love the lens for what it does, but if I have my 18-135, 60-250 and 70 macro along, it's really hard to pick up a 8-16 and put it in the bag. it's much easier to think "oh, I won't need that today."
Oh, and that Tamron 90 is no slouch either, my wife took mine and wouldn't give it back. I eventually bought the Sigma 70 to make up for the loss, but it's heavier and costs more. I hate both of those things.

And that's why i won't buy another K-3.

The Tamron is very nice ... I liked it a lot plus there's the focus limiter, but AF/MF switching is a bit weird ... eventually passed it along for the D-FA 100/2.8 WR, which would be better if it had (back) a limiter ... go figure. Enjoy the Tammy ... should really shine a on K-3. J

No, no................ I think there's a loophole here.
The subject* title of the thread is "why I won't buy a K-3".
Once your hociR arrives, you will the have one, which is a pretty good reason not to buy one.



* The original subject was actually:
Hey! My loophole worked. Why shouldn't yours?

Oh dear. Now we'll have browncoats as a thread tag. OK - another reason not to buy a K3 - probably have to smuggle it past Alliance Blue Hands.
