Today, I dove headfirst into Pentax!

Hello All!

Today I dove headfirst into Pentax! After having owned an Olympus e520 w/ 12-60 and then a panasonic g2 (both of which left me threw ebay) I finally decided to spend the money and buy into a system that will last me a long time.

After checking out the K-5 at an absolutely mobbed B and H today, I came home and ordered:

K-5, 18-135 and the 43mm. Plus the necessary filters and such.

I'm really pumped up for this new gear and the great photos that will hopefully follow!

Thanks thanks! I get the camera on Wednesday with the 18-135. I'm going to be in boston when I get it (I had it shipped to my brother's apt) so maybe I'll have some pictures of boston harbor... or some fish from the New England Aquarium!
