Just Hit 25000 pics since march

I got my K5 really only because it was on sale and my k100D super was kinda long in the tooth I really didn't think I would use it all that much. Shortly after buying the camera I became interested in Wildlife photography it only seems natural I guess since I am outside and always fishing, hiking or what have you. Anyway even though I had a K100 I never used it like a dslr I only used it in auto mode so I count the k5 as my first true real camera and its been a great to learn on. I have to say Pentax makes one hell of a good camera in terms of ergonomics and build quality I have dropped my K5 and DA300 combo off my car on to pavment and the other day I dropped it into a pond and it still runs like a charm. I have tried the Nikon D7000, D300 and Canon 7D and the K5 is overall I think a better camera that far easier to use and built better. My only dislike is the AF I mostly photograph birds and its not very good but for if your doing anything other then action then its fine for 90% of people.

I am really hoping the K3 or what ever it will be called is awesome and has a new AF with at least 19 points and that 560mm lens comes out if not I think I am going to move to two brands probably Canon just because they have such good lenses for wildlife and good AF and keep Pentax around for bad weather and general stuff.

You can see my photos here Flickr: coreyhkh's Photostream
I think I do pretty good for just having a 300mm

I have gotten a lot of looks mostly from the old Canon guys who say why are you using Pentax my answer is because they make a better camera lol

Damn, I wish my order for that lens would hurry up.
Some great shots on your flickr, particularly the birds.

25k in shots since March? I need to get a move on. I think I am currently under 5k on the K-5 since Dec 2011.

But you aren't going to burn your shutter out in less than a year.

All I'm going to say is that you've got a fine selection of wildlife where you are.
You've taken some nice bird photos.
