Welcome aboard! You will enjoy the K3, it's very powerful.

I also build my own computers, it's fun and you have no one to blame but yourself!

Yes it is fun and it is the only way in which you can really be free to chose your own components.
I think the K3 will be fun. It is just a choice of lens I am trying to decide on. As suggested go with the 18-135 which would allow me to get the 35mm, or, go for the 16-85mm with the real possibility of ditching the 35mm due to the increased costs.

16-85 and the 55-300 is a great weather resistant kit, you won't be disappointed with it. I wish I had that.
You could always get the 35/2.4 later on.

Thank you - I have decided to go for that combination. I am still looking for advice as to a good lens for indoor portrait work 98% will be indoors and the number of people will be normally 2 grand children of family of no more than 4. I have posted this question on the lens forum as I think I may be going beyond the remit of this Welcome Forum
