Even the French?

Besides, you've declared yourself only 95% French.

And said (with an accent) that it's your accent in French that is outrageous.

But of course, I have a British friend who has been living here for quite a while now, speaking close to perfect Norwegian - and his sister chides him for speaking English with a Norwegian accent now. Poor chap.

Does the K-3 come in different accents? I mean, if the K-50 comes in 122 colours...?

But even a Kah-Trois doesn't come with Clippy - which is why I won't buy one!

And yes, if the K-3 did come with Clippy on board I would buy one. And smash it to smithereens with a 12 Kg sledge hammer.

Or sledge 'ammer.

I will not buy one until I get my lens collection complete. I'm missing things in it.

Do Mobos still have a place to plug the floppy drive into? I haven't built a machine in a while, in fact my last one has XP Pro on it.
I built my last machine in 2010 and the motherboard still offered support for legacy floppy drives. I too am still running XP Pro and I am feeling a little nervous now that the OS has finally reached EOL. At issue is support for my Nikon film scanner. I suppose I could upgrade to Windows 7 32-bit and hope for the best.

Are hocir and Clippy in league? They are both arrogant...

Wasn't Sledge Hammer a private Detective? No, wait, that was Mike Hammer. Sledge Hammer was a singer. ........or was that Sister Sledge?
I'm so confused...................................

Are you insinuating that the K-3 is too solidly built for a 12Kg hammer?

In that case, I can't buy one. At least not if it is infested with Clippy.

I think if we combined all the various members' Equipment Lists we might between all of us own all the Pentax Lenses.

But maybe not.

So PentaxForums won't buy a K3.

Wasn't Sledge Hammer a song? Or did I only listen to Huey Lewis when I'd had too many Moose Drool?
