Thanks for all the suggestions, now it's time to start taking pictures, make mistakes, learn and have fun.

The DA 15 will be my next lens.
It is one of my favorites and I have I only had it since the start of this month.

That's the spirit. Go have fun with the camera. I too am still learning about the K3 as I got it 2nd hand from a buddy. I just got my DA 15 yesterday and will try it out soon.

After much thought, I cancelled the DA55 (a return/exchange order, that hadn't been processed yet) for a DA 35mm F2.8 Macro and ordered the DA 15. So hopefully I'll be set a while now. We're going to my wife's family cabin tomorrow, so will have a good opportunity to get to know the K-3.

Thanks again, have a good weekend

I'm going to try and see if I can get away with an FA 31, FA 100 2.8 Macro, and F*300 combo.

Got a couple hours in the woods with the K-3 for the first time yesterday, totally blown away by what it can do. A sample from the D FA 100mm macro, HD DA 55-300mm & D FA 50mm macro (in that order):
