Hi everyone,

Im looking to return to Pentax and getting the K5. Im very excited by the prospect of owning a Penatx again. Back in the 80's i owned both the ME Super and Super A. Wonderful comeras with many great photos stored away or on display around the house.

Im looking at going back to Penatx because i think they have finally cracked it with the K5. i currently use Nikon D300/D100/D1x for weddings and sport but as im soon to retire from being a semi pro ive decided to go back to my roots and start a love affair with the K5.

How are you guys finding this camera to date? Its hard to get my hands on a camera to try it out at our local stores for some reason other than i guess they may have sent them back due to the stained sensor issue.

Do you know where i can download either dng or raw files to play about with in lightroom.

Welcome to the forum, Pentax had a lot to answer for back in the 80's.
