but 2 matching bodies makes it much more simple to just pick one up and shoot
That's my thoughts too and it's always worked well for me.

I hope I've made the right decision - just ordered a good second-hand SIGMA APO EX 70-200mm F/2.8 on eBay for $439.98!

It's not the Macro version, but the reviews are great and the price is also good...

Many of us with 2 bodies have upgraded to a newer camera and kept our older one rather than sell it. My K10D was my second body for quite a while until it died. I'm currently shooting with a K5 that's going on 5 years old so I'll be looking at new camera soon. There are some great deals around on the K5 line right now so picking up another won't be as painful to your wallet as a K3. Maybe a K5lls? Also, you could pick up a used older body quite cheap.
