Hi from Oz

I am just here to have a look about and see if I might buy into a K5 system. My thoughts were K5, DA10-17, 17-70 & 60-250.

This all depends on having the necessary $$$ of course!

I'm a long term shooter, my main gear is medium format digital, I formerly used canon and very happy with it, but this is just my speculation at the moment.

I'll be interested to have a look about here and see what I can see.

Cheers, Odille

Welcome! That set up that you are thinking about will be most everything you'll ever need in a camera system (besides some primes of course). It will also set you back a pretty penny. Check out the marketplace, you'll find a lot of good deals there. Enjoy!

Thanks for the welcome. I've been reading about stains and autofocus problems with K5s, it's all a bit concerning. I do realise models can have issues on first release but the auto focus one seems quite bad. The stain issue appears to be resolved, I think.

It will be a little while before I am in a position to buy, so hopefully any problems will be worked out.
