Hello all,

I just wanted to let you all know today I have joined also the Pentax K-5 IIs owners group and I am glad that I can be part of this community. Until this day I was shooting with my trusty K-r, but for a while now I was looking for an upgrade as I felt that my technique and skills have developed also.

Lot of light for all of you

After shopping in Solana Beach, went to the footbridge over the train tracks, took a picture of the 5:30 train through the tight chain link fence... .
Awww man
I'm from San Diego, moved to St Louis, and REALLY miss home, especially after this winter

I always took the surfliner to get back to LA...

Congratulations! I upgraded from a trusty K-r too which I will keep as a backup since I still think it takes decent photos.

@cali92rs -- No Surfliner in St. Louis ... that's your payback for going over to the dark side and becoming a Cardinals fan!
Anyway, more SD-area photos you might like at JonDonahue | SmugMug -- stay warm, and, if you have a soft heart, say a prayer for the Padres...

Hi Everyone,

I am from sunny Singapore in Asia. I just got the K5IIs 2nd hand on the 1st of April 2014. It had 10k shutter count and the camera is great. Used to own the K10D/K20D/K7/K5 and got the K30s for the faster AF, but this one is even faster.

Greetings all from sunny Florida. I got my K-5 II a few weeks ago, upgraded from my 7year old Olympus E-500. Took me months to make up my mind as to which camera to purchase. Was all set to buy a Nikon D5200 when they dropped the price on the K-5 II, woo hoo. All I can say is awesome! Love the way it handles and the placement of the controls. Lots to learn and lover here.

Hello Ya'll I have been shooting K5 & now K5IIs for about a year and just found this club. I have a question has anyone here in the group tried a Tamron-F 1.4X Pz-AF MC4 ? I just by pure luck found a brand new one and ordered it yesterday. The reviews on this TC are great but I would be interested in hearing from someone who has used one with the K5IIS. Thanks, Bob

I have one and have used it on my trusty old K10D several times. It works well (for a teleconverter). Haven't tried it with my K5ii yet.
