Just scored my K-3.....

And under charliezap's advice also picked up the Sigma 150-500mm Bigma as well. Will probably spend the rest of the day reading the manual and setting it up to my likings. Already looking forward to using it.

Congrats, EM ! Your new camera will be in good hands, for sure. Also, I'm looking forward to seeing photos from your new big momma; the Capn sure enjoys his.

I've got a K-3 en route - I should get it Monday.

Enjoy your new toys.

Just picked up mine too: battery is charging.... I'll also be diving into the manual but, as others have said, it looks a bit sparse. I think it is slimmer than my K-r manual.
I read somewhere that there is enough in common with the K-5II that it's manual is worth reading so I think I'll download it.

As I'm keeping my K-5II.s as a backup I also have a backup manual.
