I'm am one step from buying a K3+18-135. The price in Europe it's almost the same since day 1.
That makes me think about a nikon d7100 or mirrorless...Damn!
May the Force be with me to resist!
I know. I was lucky and found both of them used at reasonable (for Europe) prices. Looks like I still would have to shell out $1500+ should I buy that combo new in Norway now

Errm, I'm not sure it's safe to discuss this in this thread, though



Resistance is futile, though, once you have heard the Sirens' song

Okay. I thought it might be the the staged/planned publicity stunt from "crush", Texas.

Yes, something like that. There is some world wide (european) conspiracy to keep people away from Pentax.

Ah, that was before the safety nuts took over, wasn't it

Am I the only one thinking William George Crush didn't carry the perfect name for someone working with railway publicity? Even though he undeniably managed to create quite a bit of it.

I got my K3 + 18-55 WR for about 950 on Amazon Germany, that's definitely cheaper than at release.

Maybe they should change the name of the thread to "why I won't buy a K-3 until nobody is looking, then I'll nab that sucker in a hot second!"

I acquired the hociR before I discovered this thread, so the warning came too late I'm afraid.
