I also use that

as far as i know there are no focusing screens which can be swapped into the K 3 series of cameras
All the same ones that work in the k-5 also work in the K-3 series. I have a katzeye marked for k-5 that fits my k-3.

Well, what I used to like to take pictures of is kids. My younger cousins growing up, then my friends and our parties and outings, then my own kids. The subjects have grown up and moved on, and I found myself barely taking any more pictures with my heavy Canon 7D and L lenses..So this is now a reboot.

You don’t say which 20 lenses you bought but I’d have thought that for a subject as fast moving and erratic as kids you’d be best off with a modern quick focusing zoom like the PLM I mentioned above or if you need something wider the 16-85 or 18-135 all of which are ideal for the K3.

I'll make a list of the lenses. However, kids are a thing of the past, at least probably for 10 more years, assuming my kids will eventually have their own kids. Right now focusing on 200-300mm zooms (which give me 70mm, plus tc for birds, plus <50mm for walking around.

Your birds must be very tame! Most here donít have the stalking skills to use a 70mm even with the HD DA 1.4x (98mm) to shoot images of birds.

Edit: I may be misunderstanding what you are saying.
