Like several others have said, I don't have the money for the K3. If I did, the K3 would be a sweet camera to own (even if it said "Kraft" on the back). I've only had my K-x just over a month, and I'm perfectly happy with it. When the time comes to upgrade I'll probably get a used K5iis (or maybe a K50).
I'm gonna win that K-50!! If I do, I'll wear a toga with Ricoh on it and serenade the neighborhood! And a Double bacon butter w/cheese sounds awesome right now!

What is this "K-3" thing that everybody wants to talk about?

I think it's the type of cheese they use on bacon cheeseburgers.

In fear of actually putting this on topic - I did buy a K-3 and I firmly admit to being an amateur photographer. I do it because I enjoy it. I don't sell any of my shots, but that doesn't mean I won't. I have a K-r and this upgrade is wonderful. I like to shoot (photographically only) wildlife and this offers me so much more. I bought it because I can use the "extra" features. My level of "professionalism" had absolutely nothing to do with that decision.

BTW I do like cheese sandwiches - especially with sliced tomato.
In my mind (a strange place, I admit), "amateur" is more of a financial status than skill status. A "pro", someone whose income depends on their camera, has different constraints and priorities. I can be as ambitious or craptastic as I feel like, without my supply of cheese sandwiches being threatened by an unhappy customer or deranged MotherOfBridezilla.

That said, I upgraded my cheese slicer from a K-r to a K-30 last year, so a K-3 would not be as big a step up for me. The 'thirty is ~most~ of a K-5, but it's that last little bit that tempts me: silky shutter, battery grip, extended bracketing, and of course all the extra knobs and buttons of the high-end interface.

Grilled cheese with diced tomato or chunky salsa and bacon is the way to go!

I- I thought it was the latest cheese slicer / sandwich grill combo from Rohic-Pantex Kitchen Applicances, Ltd. Am I on the wrong forum again?

Speaking of meat... a question towards our fellows down-under... how does the Kangaroo meat tastes like!? What is a good recipe for that!?


To me it tastes similar to beef but with a stronger distinctive flavour that I know is Roo.
Cooking is the easy bit, sneaking up on one during the day is the hard part!

Roo Stew
  • 2kg Kangaroo, cubed
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 medium Onions, chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 Carrots, sliced thick
  • 16 Chat (baby coliban) Potatoes, halved
  • 6 Brussell Sprouts, halved
  • Handful of Button Mushrooms, halved
  • 2 tbsp Flour
  • 750ml Chicken Stock
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 4 Sprigs Fresh Thyme (if available)
  • Cracked Pepper
Brown kangaroo cubes in a little oil and set aside. Fry onions and garlic - covered for 3 minutes.
Return the kangaroo cubes along with the flour and stir through. Add stock, bay leaves and thyme. Cover and simmer gently for 1 hour. Add the remaining vegetables and cook, covered, for 30 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally for a further 10 minutes or until sauce thickens. Season with pepper.

That's like the #1 rule of cooking. If it's jacked up, add a little cheese!
