My First K-5 Image
Lens: Tokina 17mm f3.5 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Isle Of Lewis ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/30s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: hebridean, 02-12-2012, 09:44 AM

I would like to thank all forum members for their contributions regarding the K-5, as it was your posts that convinced me to take the plunge and upgrade from the K-r which i've had and enjoyed for the past couple of years. Living a remote region of Scotland where there are no camera shops to speak of your opinions were invaluable to me.
I've also attached a couple of images of St Kilda which i visited last summer. One of Gallan Head the most North Westerly point in Scotland with a fantastic trout loch, and an image of Gearrannan.

Wonderful group of pictures here. I love all of them. The colors are fantastic. Are those what are called black houses in the last photo?

These are all amazing shots! I love #1 and #4 the most!

I have a K-r and would love a K-5. Can you compare them? Like what stands out most to you as the biggest improvement going from K-r to K-5? Thanks and congrats on the wonderful camera (and beautiful views)!

Many thanks to you all for your kind comments.

Yes Susan they are black houses. This is a village on the West side of the island which was abandoned in the mid seventies and has been renovated over the past ten years or so.

Lori, it's early days yet with the camera but what's obvious is the difference in build quality. Fortunately the menu/modes were easily navigated not being that much different to the K-r, but it's under it's hood that i'm hoping to see the biggest diffence with the superior sensor.

Thanks! Well, it certainly looks like you are quite at home with the K-5. Can't wait to see more images.
