Dissuade yourself from the K-3 II

Its eating away...

in-built astrotracer.. this is awesome IMO
improved SR
DR looks very good at low ISO from what I've seen
probably turn out to be a lot cheaper than the FF, smaller and lighter (not to say the FF won't be good of course)
dual cards
seems ideal for landscape and perhaps a bit of street

I've just acquired a 77

gaaahhhhhh

It's not a K-01 successor.

Dissuasion complete.

If you buy one you have no reason to loaf about in bed relaxing on Saturday morning!

All the specs in the world don't matter if I can't afford it.

If you haven't been using the K-3 for the past year and a half, you've definitely been missing out

You must get it now before you are star struck by the FF. That's my strategy. I'm getting my K3ii this month even though I have a K3.

I'll definitely have a good reason for a FF and that is I just need it to go with my 31Ltd. My 31Ltd on a FF should be awesome/dream. But a K3ii on my 500 sigma can be a reality.

I have a K-3 and the FF is just around the corner. Prices of the Q 08 zoom are falling too. Besides, there's lots of other equipment out on the market besides cameras and lenses that can change how I do photography.

Three words - no internal flash.

That's the deal-breaker for me.
