What are they gonna say about Pentaxdude? What are they gonna say? That he was a kind man? That he was a wise man? That he had plans, man? That he had wisdom?

That he created this thread, then sat back and watched while it became the Monster That Ate Cincinnati.

I would've been proud!

I think.

Which probably means I don't deserve a K-3.

Anyhow, I vote we ask Pentax to award him a K3 plus a Ricoh jacket for services to raising the K3 profile in the world.
I think that a Ricoh hat would be enough.

True. But real cornbread doesn't get buttered. You put mayonnaise on it OR you crumble it up in a glass of buttermilk.
No, YOU put mayo on it. <ick>

(just my picky-eater avatar chiming in...I do not put mayo ("white slime") on anything. Ever. )

K-3some sounded interesting, though if there was ever a FF camera, it would eventually be the K-1some and that is not so good.

I personally like "K-3!" In programmer talk that would be Kay-three-bang. Much better than K-3* (Kay-three-splat).

I think it would need to be a Pentax branded Ricoh hat, though. After all, the branding is what makes the product, right?

...Unless it is a hat. In that case shape and size of bill as well as color are more important. The Pentax hats were black.* I assume the Ricoh hats are red. Red is way better.

* I have a black Pentax hat that I got instead of a free K-7. Long story...

I would really like a safari-style Pentax hat in Khaki. Will they make one of those? Noooo...All everyone ever makes is baseball-style caps that get in the way of the camera.

Thanks! I thought that was the reference, but I have never seen the movie.
