Just received my K-5

I'm so excited, I received my K-5, literally 10 minutes ago. I've put the battery on charge, poured myself a bacardi and coke and settled down to thoroughly read the manual.

I don't know what your current camera is but it's about to become a dinosaur.

My new K5 has been in my hands for around a month and it is nothing less than magical.

Post a first day photo on this thread once your battery charges!

That is a great idea to have a drink while reading the manual and charging the battery. When your done reading, you'll be all set to go with a fully charged battery....

UPS dropped mine off last night. I got home very late so I put the battery on charge. Can't wait until work is over today!
