in order to get the silver battery grip for the k 3 III, you must order the silver premium edition

this is the battery grip for the K 3 III

I enter the contests because

why not

since I got lucky and got the KP [ which my son has " inherited" no cash exchange so I guess that is ok with Cerebum ;) ]

I'm correctly limited to the consolation prizes

and I like to try to put " unusual " entries into the actual raffle threads

_____________

but one thing I hate about the raffles

the judgment by some as to whether a post is " worthy " or not to make up the necessary number to post in the raffle thread

only Adam should make that call, IMHO

sounds like you are looking for wide angle and portrait lenses then

however to " complete " your limiteds, it looks like you are missing more than the 31mm

like the 35mm macro, 40mm and 70mm although with the 43mm and 77mm perhaps you don't need those

________________

one of the 100mm F2.8 macros for a short telephoto, macro and an excellent lens

if not focused on a prime

perhaps the 20-40mm zoom limited

_________________

it looks like the OP uses a ASP-C sensor camera and/or film



so with the ASP-C sensor " field of view equivalence " might be an issue

" Back home again in [ this growing raffle ]
And it seems that I can see
The gleaming candlelight, still burning bright
Through the sycamores for me
The new-mowed hay sends all its fragrance
Through the fields I used to roam
When I dream about the moonlight on the Wabash
How I long for my [ consolation prize ] "

if you don't have to act immediately

and you don't care about the premium sets

I would advise waiting to get the real world experiences of others with the K 3 III and perhaps a price dip

upon receiving my Silver Premium K 3 III and the assorted goodies

the first question is not what lens to use but

do I open the box ?

aren't you suppose to keep a collectable in the original unopened box to keep its value ?


wanna bet how long that idea will last ?

some folks make it difficult

a three way tie :confused:

between Special K, Parallax and dbs :eek:

so according to the rules I must declare the winner to be

" Finger lickin' good! "

as it is the one reminding me of a classic story

[ obviously this cougar wasn't thankful to the mouse who removed the thorn from the paw ]

a PM has been sent to Special K asking that a new contest be posted and a link to the new contest be posted here

since I am hoping to receive my pre-ordered Silver Premium Edition of the K 3 III

I have no $ left

and just like my SMC DA Limited primes, I have no intention of updating my SMC FA Limiteds to HD

when I checked BH, there is what appears to be a pre-order button

and it is placed into my cart if I select it

it warns me that delivery date is uncertain

K-3iii Insurance

read the terms carefully

most likely you will find that coverage of the add on " warranty " starts at date of purchase and runs as the same time as the manufacturer's warranty

which means you have double coverage for 1 year ( here in the US ) so a 3 year add on only gives you 2 years more coverage


I get 1 year additional coverage free by using a certain credit card for the purchase, the card gives me a 2 year coverage, and since I then pay the balance on the card off immediately, there is no charge to me other than the cost of the credit card membership

if I am not mistaken

insurance companies would deny coverage for something used as a business asset if it is only covered by a household policy or auto policy

read your contract - policy- carefully

I also have state farm and a personal articles rider to cover my photography equipment

and I do not use my equipment in a business
