From Russia with love ...

Hey! Best regards form Saint-Petersburg!

I am glad to join the very friendly and dedicated Pentax-fans family.
I used to use Minolta's system (and I've still loved it) but now I have no any photo equips at all and am thinking about starting a new photo life from a white page. Was going to buy Sony 850 (full frame) but at that moment a K5 was issued. And I see it will suit me perfectly because its sensor's ability is near the FF's one. However I need a sealed body as am going to use it in wet and windy conditions (to take pictures of windsurfing, kiting, rock climbing and so on). So K5 would be a better choice for me. I hope it is fast enough to catch the kiter's jump and other quick movements.

Walked a bit around the various branches of the forum and now I am sure I will be able to find answers to any question here.

Aloha!

Welcome! The K5 will definitely be fast enough to catch kite jumpers and fast movements. It will also serve you well for outdoor adventures. This forum will help you with everything you need to know Pentax. Enjoy!

Welcome aloha, and hope you enjoy your time on the forum.
The K-5 is pretty impressive. We look forward to seeing what you can do with it.

Thanks to all!

BTH I have an idea first to get something like 10D "for soul" and use it until the K5 becames a bit cheaper. Then buy K5 and either sell the 10D or keep it as a second body. The second hand 10D is quite cheap nowadays.

I don't think you can go wrong with the K10D. It has a solid feel and good ergonomics along with brilliant low ISO performance. Enjoy.
