Well done!!!

The K-5 is a fantastic camera. Even though my copy suffers the front focus problem, I still love it.

I'll have mine on Monday....first shot will be a handsome Squirrel! I have already signed Otis to a contract for a bag of premium corn and a pound of shelled pecans for ten minutes of his time.
Post us some shots as soon as possible!
Best Regards!

Congrats. I got mine last Thursday. Took it out today for the first
time, but haven't had a chance to look at results yet. I'm sure
you will love your new toy

That is an excellent shot. And when you say the Sigma 70-200mm I assume that is the F2.8 model I've been thinking about getting. May I ask how much you paid for it?

Miten uusien Pentax kameroitten saanti on tulevaisuudessa japan. Ja saavatko kaikki halukkaat K-5 ja ne joiden K-5 on vaihdossa.

Just ordered a K-5 from Adorama. Good price. 30 day return policy, if necessary. Excellent help from Helen and Fred with my questions.

Thank you Forum Members for the encouragement and knowledge you share. Now I must save some bucks for new glass!

I feel like a 10 year old waiting for Christmas to arrive.

The brown truck can't get here fast enough. I have a distinct feeling "enjoy" will be an understatement.
