Hi from South NJ outside of Philly

Just bought into the Pentax family. K-5 plus DA 21, FA 31 and FA 77. Was looking at the Leica M-9 for ages but just could not swing the price tag. The K-5 plus primes is better for me being a DSLR and the lenses are every bit the equal to the Leica counter parts. I already feel the change in my photography from my Oly gear. Oly has great zooms but everything is big. Have dreamed of great glass and small foot print for a long time and now I feel I've come home. Dave

Thanks for the welcome. Looking to hone my skills with primes so the future should be interesting. Already amazed at what is coming out of the 77 and 21. I do my walks with one lens at a time to get a better feel for how it functions. I think I learn better that way versus trying to learn them all at once. The fun is back.
