Hi from Switzerland

I have been a happy Minolta X700 users for over 20 years. This year I have made the move to serious digital photography, after trying some compact cameras. Since May I'm using a K-7. It gave my photographic activity a real push and I enjoy it more than ever. This Pentax camera just felt right when I first held it in my hands. It's robustness makes it a reliable companion.

Now with the new K-5 just coming out I feel that I need to upgrade. The K-5 offers everything I would need (particularly improved sensitivity) for at least the next ten years.

Welcome! I'm definitely in agreement with you about the K-5- it's got everything I need as well!
