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!
Anyone that wins a camera should have Ricoh laser engraved on their forehead.

I must admit that after painstakingly reading the first 62 pages of this thread, I started skimming. I wasn't considering upgrading at all but now that I know it comes with bacon I'm really excited about the K3! At least that's what I thought I read.

I think it may be a mistake to read too much into this thread, especially if you do it painstakingly.

Whilst cheese is a food with definite photography connections (say cheese everyone), everything is better with bacon.

Perhaps Ricoh is the bacon to Pentax's cheese?

$599 K5II

Say, "Cheeeeeese!" everyone!!
Cheeeeeeeese! Wait, I think I blinked.

Well, it's official - I won't be buying a K-3 (or a k3) because of that blasted banner with the K-5II deal. It's Adam's fault.

I am concerned - the "PENTAX" on the back will be a constant reminder that my camera is not a K-3, and therefore not the top of the line, and therefore inferior. Maybe I can put tape over it. Or print a label (which would say "Move Closer." - might as well get some practical use out of it.)

Congrats! You'll love it. You'll even have a little bit left over for some cheese sandwiches!

This might be too serious for this thread but I bought a film camera kit at a garage sale (for the lens) and on the back of the camera was taped a neatly hand lettered cheat sheet with the settings to be used in different light. It was a sobering moment of looking into the thinking of the previous owner.

Waiter! Cheese sandwiches for all my friends! Both of them, even! Okay, I'll have one, then!

They said this thread was stupid and a waste of time. We showed them! (that they were absolutely correct!)

It would have been appropriate to close the thread at 1001 posts, but 1002 (1003 now) - nah, we gotta keep going to 2000. Fortunately, there's 27 days 'til Christmas, and that means a lot of cookie / hors d'oeuvres recipes!
