I am not a technical guy with respect to camera & lens equipment, and have just purchased a K-3 with the 18-135mm WR & 55-300mm WR lenses & a 1.4x TC. I am doing some "desktop experimenting" with these and a Polaroid 500D close-up lens, and find that the listed spec for minimum focusing distance on the 18-135mm is shown at .4m or ~16". I get a min. distance of ~7.5" at 18mm, and ~9.5" at 135mm with the bare lens. What am I missing? Thanks. CraigK

Hi,I am thinkingabout to buy the K5 II with the 18-135 for 1350 €. The shop gives a refund of 150. Then I could buy a good prime for ~ 400 € (Probably I would need to buy it somewhere else).The alternative is to buy a Nikon D600 for 1600 € (which means to get a Nikkor 50mm F1.8 for free) and buy a Nikon 24-85 fpr ~ 400 €.What does make more sense to you?What would you do?
