It was a cool, 49 degrees F., rainy morning early. Didn’t look promising for walking or making images. What it did was make me wonder, what would be the best camera for use on a day like today? Would I take the K-3 and the 18-135mm out if I went for a walk in the rain? It would be nice if I had a smaller WR lens for it. It is a shame the pancake 40mm lens isn’t WR. I used to carry my TG-5 on days like this since it was small, fit in my pocket, and was waterproof … not just weather resistant. The IQ of the K-3 and the 18-135mm lens is better than the small TG-5, but the TG-5 was better to carry in a pocket.
I did later put the K-3 in the car and drove some, and then walked around a bit when it was only sprinkling lightly. The K-3 makes a nice car camera for days like this.
