Zoom lens is handy, would pic 18-135 or 16-50. For high quality fixed lens 21 mm is very handy for street shots (or pyramids ;-) or people at close range. I Love that one myself.

Buy K3 or K5 II's?

Im not sure, it had quite old firmware so I think it might have been on the shelves a while before they sent it to me ;-). You are right, I still think the K5 is a brilliant camera. I just have one small issue and thats that I think autofocus perform bad in low light conditions (I know several who also complained about this, so I dont think its only me). Living in Sweden we do not have the best light conditions for 2/3 of the year. Normally it takes very high quality images, but the K5II seems a bit sharper to me. I will probably wait a while with upgrade and keep on to my K-5.

A bit to late i comment this.

Im sure u got a splendid camera with the K-3, but I need to tell about my own experience. I bought the K-5 just two months before the K-5II was released. The K-5II seemed like a significant update with much (in my wiew) better autofocusing in bad light conditions, so I was a bit titter of that. I will now wait and see if they do the same with K-3, releasing a K-3II in late autumn. In such case Pentax (Richo) is walking the path of apple marketing releasing upgrades of flagships between new modells (probably after learning the setbacks with the first release). In that case its good to buy the updates in the future, but I will wait and see if this is really the trend.

@6BQ5: Nice photographs!

You do not need to worry, I do not think so many engineers would be needed for such a task. Perhaps a few working hours from the engineering side of it. The idea with bluetooth is good (wonder if K-3 work like that with the smart SD?), but i suspect it eats battery as well though. As u said one can always switch off.

To those of u concerned with battery I must say this has newer been a problem for me with the Pentax. Never felt I needed a batterygrip or so. Maybe for those of u who are out in the the field with no access to electricity for days and days its a problem.

The Swedish National Heritage Board actually had some problems locating photos from the travels of Carl Curman in the late 1800s. These pictures where put out on Flickr and was identified by users there (espesially after Spanish newspapers wrote about it). This is a good approach for pictures taken in the 1800s, but today the coordinates would tell u in a blink. So why not use technology if we have it, do u not want to use a inbuilt GPS, just switch it off ;-). Some examples how people identified the places (look at comments):

@Stevebrot: Thanks, no worries :-). @Eliott: thanks for the tip.

Answering some of the main arguments from the last three posts:

Im working with geo-attributed data and therefore I realize the importance and demand of it (not trying to be nosy about it). Its uses comes mainly in documentation, it makes the data more useful especially when used as a historical document/record.

Some of you might think its "big brother" and so on, but when it comes down to it big brother will find u if they want to and probably not through your camera with picures u took last week, your phone would probably trace more of your activity.

Concering there should be a problem with a built in GPS, its not true. The other two big camera makers already have cameras with inbuilt GPS, and we want Pentax to take a place in the competition with these do we not?

You are right its not massive, but still they could fit a fairly decent GPS within a modern phone. I tried my own phone against a geographical service and im sure its within 10 m, perhaps closer to 5. And thats within a 10x6x0,5 cm device. Imagining how useful photographies will be in the future, to trace events or persons to specific places in the photos (together with other meta-data). What a historical resource! I hope Pentax will be on the same train as the rest of the world.

I wonder why Pentax have not yet built in a GPS in its flag ship DSLR:s? Its a hugh disadvantage and a small ting to do. All data is of a larger value if included with geo-information. Furthermore many programmes, like LR for example, make advantages of geographical information if included in the data-file. Of course one could buy the Pentax GPS, but to be honest its a bulky ugly piece of....... With todays technology you they could fit in a built in GPS with no problems. So why do they do this? Stupid marketing? (do they expect to sell more of the large GPS-unit, or do they not understand other brands get advantage). I really hope their developing department see this post....
