Latest Member of the K-5 Club

I finally got tired of obsessing over the K-5. So, I took my Panasonic G2 and GF1 down to Adorama this morning and got a good price for them on trade-in... allowing me to bring the purchase price of a K-5 body down below $1000 - even with NYC sales tax and accessories. So I left the store with a new K-5 box in an Adorama plastic bag.

I'm at work now and probably won't be able to really play with the camera until this weekend. I went for the extended warranty from Pentax ($19.95) for a total of three years. So, I'm in the club. I'm excited... but slightly anxious. I hope my camera is one of the trouble-free K-5s. Still, almost all K-5 owners I have communicated with tell me they'd buy again even with some of the issues they've dealt with.

Something I have often mentioned here at PF. Even a "bad one" is still great! Congratulations and no doubt you will be as thrilled as the rest of us!
Regards!

Congrats...you'll be floored by the low light capabilities. I know I'm thrilled about not having to think twice about bumping up the iso to levels I never would have with my k7.

Don't know your marital status bit it looks as though your wife, girlfriend(s) or mistress(') will have to take a backseat for a little while.
