Just got my wife a K3 and Pentax 55-300 lens Thursday and she loves it! She also has a K5 IIs with a Sigma 18-250 lens. Although she has only been into the QUALITY DSLR cameras for 13 months she can already tell a difference in the picture quality. And the K3 is FAST in auto focus, something she has been hesitant to use before. We cruise a place called "Mingo National Wildlife Refuge" In Southeast Missouri and probably 99.99 percent of her pictures are from the truck. Basically a cruise and shoot affair.
Welcome to the Clubhouse Randy.

So, a truck, eh?

How many wheels does it have?

Here is my latest:

But I don't see forty bazillion yellow lights all over the front of it, outlining everything... (like so many rigs I see down here)

At least it doesn't have "hociR" on it anywhere I can see. Not on the back, I hope...

Ah, I'll pass. They could probably use 'em in Tokyo, though.

Googling 'origin of ...' gives Truckers Report where a contributor claims that chicken haulers, looked down upon in the '70's, started putting them on to upgrade their image. But what do I know. I own a K3.

Welcome Randy and welcome also to your wife. But don't get some of the characters in this thread going about trucks. Or rigs. Or cheese. Or bacon. Or recipes. Or hociR.
Or lutefisk. You left out lutefisk!
