A Christmas Story is #1, followed by Pale Rider, High Plains Drifter, and Ratatouille.

Okay, so my taste in movies is a bit diverse, but I've never seen a bad Tom Hanks or Clint Eastwood movie.

You obviously missed "The Bridges of Madison County". Clint let me way down with that one.

Another Iowa original!! Yeah baby!!!! Now onto coffee: At home, fresh ground Rowandan Blend! dark but not bitter. From the shop(not Starbucks!) I go for cappuchino in winter and frozen cappuchino in summer!!

P.S. I still think the OP is slumped over his laptop, deader than a pig at Bacon Fest!!

It's not so bad, once you get used to it.

Addendum to Favorite Movies: I'm now watching a classic. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It ranks right up there with A Christmas Story.

I read on another thread that the K-3 sensor has sub-optimum performance for red at ISO 6400 and that should be a deal breaker. Now I am really confused. All this time and I thought I should not buy the K-3 because of the Ricoh label on the back.

Please advise...I am soooo confused...

The Ricoh label is probably causing additional noise at ISO 6400. It certainly caused additional noise in other places!

My new k-5ii says Pentax on the front & back, but Ricoh on the bottom. It looks like a camera, but maybe it's a printer/copier?

It's a copier.
Point it at something and push that little button thingy on the top right, then quickly look at the back. See? It made a copy of what you pointed it at.
