Got my K-5 IIs finally

Hey guys, I am so glad i finally have a DSLR after using a nikon's bridge compact camera.
I've read yesterday on the forum about the new strap, and it's a kinda true , i would like to buy another one, is this (ebay) good enaugh? Any other opinions?
The lens I ordered later didn't arrive yet: SMC Pentax-F F/1.7 50mm so I am using a friend's lens 18-55mm White (no WR) from K-r, it's the 2nd time when i hold a DSLR, and I still have a lot to learn. Some random pics I took last days:

Attachment 153860

Attachment 153861

Attachment 153862

Attachment 153863

Attachment 153864

I am expecting some criticize from amateurs, pro's and others, as a beginer, I would like to know what mistakes I am doing, and how to correct them!

Apart from a tad missed focus or too short focus depth in some shots you've come off to a good start! Just keep on clicking and read about the basics of photography.

Yeah just keep shooting and I always recommend this: Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs with a Film or Digital Camera (Updated Edition): Bryan Peterson: 9780817463007: Books

For a strap, I recommend:

You are on your way, Enjoy!

I must be the only one not being that fond of the Understanding Exposure book. Maybe it's because I got a really old version?
