Welcome, cukime! K3 + Sigma 17-70... that's a nice setup. I have the K3 also, and a Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 - they work very well together. Enjoy!

I once owned a 1998 Honda CR-V made in Saitama and have an old friend of the family who lives in Kawagoe City. I know it's a large suburb of Tokyo, but his name is Hidehiko Kondo. Aloha....I just joined this forum last year....some of the most generous and knowledgeable members with a love of photography and Pentax.
