Hey guys. I just recently purchased a K-5 online that I'm still waiting for. In the mean time, I'll introduce myself.

I currently have a 35mm KM that was my fathers. I currently have these lenses with it:

28mm F2.8
55mm F1.8
135mm F3.5

I got the K-5 with the 18-135mm WR lens. I cannot wait! I sold my D40 on eBay and got the K-5 for under $1,600 thanks to having a 10% off coupon good for up to $100.

Welcome! I think you made a good choice with the 18-135, and if you need a faster lens, you're covered with your primes from the KM!

Welcome! I hope you enjoy that K-5 as much as I do mine.

Hi, and welcome. I picked the same lens for my new K-5, and I love it, as well as the old primes. Enjoy!

Thanks Jodo. Well my package is scheduled to arrive at my house today which is insane since it shipped from Japan on the 25th ... I've been thinking and have been worrying about having to send it back because of the problems with the K-5. It'll probably be even more of a headache having to go to Japan and back.

Well they shipped my camera some time on the 25th and guess what? It's here already! From Tokyo to Philly over the weekend! If you guys don't have a problem getting a Japanese model, OGT-Clan on eBay does an amazing job. Oh, and so does the camera so far too!
