Hi from St. Louis

Hi, I am new here, but not to Pentax. Have loved them since the mid 60's when I got my first Pentax (Spotmatic). Since then I have been mostly a film user until I bought a Canon 5D2 last year. I did not like that camera because it was so big so I sold it and bought a K5. Love the K5, it is everything I wanted it to be. Well made, takes great shots, handles well. What more could you ask for.

Welcome! My friend has a 5dMkII and I felt the same way about the camera being way to big especially for a recreational user like me. That is one of the reasons I got the Kx was because of the ergonomics. The K5 is a beast of a camera in its own right. Enjoy!

I have to agree on the 5d ergonomics (for that matter all the canons i've tried) I shoot a k7 and love the ergonomics (and at some point will add a k5)
