Wow, what a dramatic difference in photography between those images! Mine was shot with a Canon 300D and the 18-55 kit lens (man, did it suck) and that 4x4 Kangoo is from a Casio EX-Z22 point-n-shoot.
Obviously an excellent reason to not buy a K-3!

...That and the real good bundle deals have expired

... DO those Kangoos come in a 4 wheel drive version?
Oui !!! Like my (older) model, there was a 4x4 (and also a special handicapped rear-ramped version) ... don't know if they kept the 4WD for the newer version/model Kangoos which use a different vehicle platform ... good question on that aspect. J

It was discussed, but in the alternate reality that occasionally intersects this one. That reality where the hociR is called "Ricoh" is even stranger than this one.
That describes the problems with photographing creatures like Centaurs, Pisces, Capricorns and Leos perfectly. They intersect, even permeate everything from their level, yet remain unfathomable - even for a lens with f/0.0.

Or maybe exactly not?

Well... Here it is more like Bacon, Cheese, Lude-fisk, Godzilla and Borg and the fall of Tokyo. Just to mention some.
You need to go to page one and start catching up.

B&H quit their K-3 promotions and I thought I was safe from the dreaded hociR and then I found out today that the deal with Adorama is still running theirs and that they are out of stock.

Woe is me! Out of stock means I can order and have time to reconsider my decision! This is not good, not good at all...

I was able to calm myself with the thought that the B&H package I would really have liked (body-only price with grip, card, and DA 50/1.8 thrown in at no extra charge) is not offered by Adorama. I would much prefer to pair the a K-3 with a Sigma 17-70 2.8-4 DC Macro HSM over the DA 18-135 WR.

Whew! That was close!

You must....... be.......... strong
Don't do it! I've heard, and it may just be a rumor, that it says Ricoh on the back.
It may not be true, but why take the chance?

Argggg! I was wrong! Adorama does do the body, DA 50/1.8, grip, and card for the body-only price. I am doomed, doomed. Already I can feel the hot brand of the hociR on my cheek!

Must resist the assimilation, joining hociR collective will only speed up the collapse of Tokyo.
Bacon and Cheese to the rescue

Well... in the case you prove to be weak and fall for it.
Make sure to order a roll of black Gaffer tape at the same time.

I also drank the Kool-Aid and now have the dreaded hociR. Must admit it is a nice tool. Love the Auto White Balance.
