I always have lived day to day, mostly in the moment. And now I posses the K5IIs protection.

The hociR cannot even keep up with me.

My husband had several health problems last January, including a bout with renal failure (dialysis, etc.) and a mild stroke. I've always been good about appreciating the blessings that I have, but that drove it even deeper. Cherishing the people that you love and the experiences of your life are far, far more important than the stuff.

Just bought a couple manual lenses and am waiting for them to arrive off ebay

So now my budget is even lower than the low it was to begin with. Probably a 30th the price of a K-3.

So that's why I won't buy a K-3

For sure.

Let everyone else deal with all their Stuff.

Seriously, I hope your future holds good things for your family. Adversity can challenge up and test our resolve. Stay strong and enjoy today and every moment you have!

And a big thumbs up for you!

Hey, rise and shine! I might buy a K-3 if the only thing in this thread is the echoing steps of hociR!

I might even duct tape out the letters on the front!

Yeah, looks like the occidentals have run out of reasons not to buy a K-3 and are all queueing up with hociR to get one.
