My best camera + lenses......ever!

I have posted elsewhere, and think I should add here that the K-5 with Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 and Pentax 50-135mm f2.8 is the best camera and lenses I have ever had.

I think I am getting image quality as good as, or probably better than my best attempts with Pentax film gear and prime lenses in the 1970s.

I have sold the (not "Limited") Fixed Focal length primes I had been hanging onto in case Pentax ever made a 'full frame' small DSLR (Has everyone forgotten the Pentax 645D?) as direct comparisons showed I could equal their image quality with just two good zoom lenses.

This does not make me some 'Super Photographer' but it means I can trust my kit and can concentrate on the remaining variable....the dope holding the camera!
