I'm new to the boards and just thought I would introduce myself. I am currently an Olympus DSLR shooter, but I am in the process of switching to Pentax. I love Oly zooms, but ever since discovering the joys of shooting with prime lenses, I've decided that I wanted to move to a system with a more dedicated prime lineup. Although Canon and Nikon produce great cameras, my first ever camera was a Pentax and I was delighted to see that after a slow start in the digital world, Pentax has really come on strong in the last few years. Frankly, the K-5 is exactly the type of camera I've been looking for from Olympus and having played with it at BH Photo recently, I'm all in.

Looking forward to posting a bit more when the K-5 finally arrives. I'm sure I'll be asking for lots of advice from you guys in the near future.
