Question - would it be too early to spawn a new thread: Why I won't buy a 645Z. Maybe invite the OP to start one? Or maybe we wait until the production model is shipping?
Nooooooooooooo! This thread is an institution. Any competition WILL BE CRUSHED!!!

The 645Z is a good reason not to buy a K-3.

Dude, you are so being tracked and pandered to! The evil hociR is even paying to know what cat videos you watch. Get on the free version of DoNotTrackMe and use the DuckDuckGo search engine, and you'll get unbiased (but far less funny) search results like this:

Well the "Do Not Track Me" thing wants me to give up my e-mail and register. So then it will be yet another web site that is tracking me.

Yup, I know about the duck. The screen grab I posted was actually via Chrome's incognito mode, which is probably not perfect but at least the results didn't show the cat videos I've been making with the K-3...

I just read an ad attached to the free version of an iPhone app I use suggesting I download Chrome for iPhone. If I use Chrome for iPhone in Incognito Mode and search with DuckDuckGo then I won't get results for cat videos or duck-lip selfies, right?

P.S. - the next ad on that footer was for MS Office for iPhone. MSiWord (Read-Only Word doc.s) is free. MSiOffice costs real American money.

And then they can sell your information to all the people you're blocking! How great is that?

The man in brown, the hociR's agent, paid a dread visit today. My signature sealed the transaction and he smiled weakly before leaving me to my fate. Later, the cold, metallic weight of the object presses against my palm. My pity for the people of Tokyo slowly moves into the dark retreats of my unconscious mind.

It is here.

I guess I couldn't buy one due to crop factors! I can't have it planting things I don't want after all.
