Since I got my K3 I never reach for my K511......at this point the K3 is far better value at the prices quoted I reckon

Generally, I like the look of the images from the FA limiteds.....31 and 77 mostly on APC..... then the Da21 for extra FOV if I need it..... also have a DA15 which I only tend to use when the situation suits. When looking for a lens longer then my 77 I mostly always won't a real long lens so I have a F*300 4.5. I'm on a bus in Vietnam typing this on holiday..... mostly shooting with the 31, 300 and 21 in that order.

And just to prove there are no real rules.....a portrait I took a couple of days ago with the 300

so Id go K3 and Da35.....youd have no regrets......and of note....I have rice paddies, temples, Oxen on the side of the road, moutains and dark clouds..... then WIFI that works better then back home.....so crazy!

And to prove it...a DA21 shot through the window a few minutes ago

Thanks for the reply. Beautiful images - the K3 is a really capable camera.

I think the DA35 will be a good match.
