samhain: If I was shopping for an aps-c dslr, I'd choose the k-3 over either Canon or Nikon aps-c offerings.

Now Pentax just needs some fast f1.4 glass.
An f1.2 wouldn't hurt either.

my quandary now is to try and negotiate a k3 with the missus or just buy the zeiss 85mm 1.4 instead for the K5...... thoughts?

don't get too hung up on pentax glass... its never really been world class in my opinion but there are other options. THat said i have never used some of the older limited lenses esp the 85mm1.4

I pretty much only shoot with Zeiss glass now on my K5 . totally addicted to Zeiss... yes they stopped producing them but there are plenty of them around and for good money unless you want the 21mm which just doesn't exist for love nor money or the 18mm which is rarer than hens teeth and goes for over a grand when it does show up...

i also have a tamron 90mm f2.8 macro which looks crap but is insanely sharp
