I would not mind having one of those. The wife might complain...not fitting the living-room decor
It's ok to own a cannon if it's been disabled. There's a website that sell military equipment like tanks, APC's, armored cars you name it. Once considered buying an ex Russian BTR-40 rebuilt with GM powertrain. It would have been an awesome off road vehicle! But poorness won out!

There is someone near here, at Coomandook, who collects old stuff. He used to have a 105mm at the front gate. Now that is gone, replaced by a tank, I think a Centurion. There is someone else at Murrayville (or just near there) with a yard with several WWII tanks, including a Matilda, but they seem like they were used a farm implements. And someone else in the Flinders apparently still had a WWI British tank which he had used as a tractor and then it stopped, so it was left in the field.

The great Centurian! Historically the best tank ever produced!! Able to lock horns with modern tanks 50 years after it was designed!! Sorry bit of an armor geek!
If I can't own a Centurian, no K-3 for me either!!
Did you see the latest prices on the K-50? Hot dog!!

Yep...I guess that means it is about time to prepare for the all new K-60 or K-50 Super?

AF module? What is that?

Does it speed up the slow AF system and fix house-sized focus points in the VF?

Somebody is hostile! You're certainly entitled to your opinion regarding the technical ability of a camera. But perhaps you could voice your concerns in a clear, logical manner without profanity or hostility?

Nope, slows it down even more and reduces your focus point to just one...shaped like a house.

No, it makes excellent cheese nachos, however.

Perhaps he could start another thread about the slow AF & house sized AF points that we could then derail into a beer, bacon & cheese thread?
