...exactly, that's why I want to sell one of the cameras. Maybe the K-3 will go, the K5 IIs is good enough for me.
I've decided to sell the K3. On paper it's so much better but the K5 IIs is perfectly fine for what I do with it. Plus I have a battery grip for the K5 and it doesn't fit on the K3. As I already wrote above I kind of like the handling of the K5 better.

I'll keep the HD DA16-85, a DA18-55WR, a DA55-300, my two plastic primes (DA35 and DA50). For low light telephoto I bought a F135/2.8 from an old SF7 used kit. I think I'm pretty much set at this point. I spent about 1200 for all of the above and selling the K3, the Tamron 18-200 and a pair of 18-55s will help reduce the bill.
