Well, I pulled the trigger on a lightly used K-3 and DA* 16-50 off of Adorama and B&H, respectively. Got both (w/ warranties) for $1200.

I plan to add the DA* 60-250 to give me a well rounded setup for my outdoor work. When the 16-50 craps out, I'll pick up another, or maybe add the 16-85 (when the price normalizes).

Can't wait to get back out there and shoot some decent photos!
Back on the horse - good man!

It was fun while it lasted. K-3 and 18-135 stolen out of my truck in the driveway. Went to grab something out of it in the evening and forgot to lock it. The cam was in the center console, under some stuff. Police report filed, serial # 4829882.

Sorry to hear this. You may want to look on craigslist.

Oh, I have been. Daily...and scouring pawn shops, eBay, Backpage, etc. I've pretty much given up, which is why I dropped another 2k on a new kit. Life goes on!

What did you get as part of the new kit? Care to share?

Sure thing. I picked up the following over the last couple of days:

- Pre-owned (EX+) K-3 through Adorama (6-month warranty). $699
- Pre-owned (8+) DA* 16-50mm f2.8 through B&H (90-day warranty). $499
- Pre-owned (Ex cond) DA* 60-250mm f4 through user on PentaxForums. $775
- Manfrotto Off Road Hiker 30L backpack through Amazon $165

Still to buy:
DA15 or Sigma 10-20 (undecided)
Custom dyneemaX photo bag*

I didn't lose my filters or tripod, so at least I don't have to re-buy those =)

*I'm working with an ultralight backpack maker to build a pack similar to the Manfrotto Off Road that will be better for hiking/backpacking and about half the weight. Stay tuned for details on that!
