Just Got K-5 Yesterday

I've decided to switch to DSLR after years of point-n-shoots, and I've chosen Pentax as my brand. I'm still sorting through all the features and settings with the camera which arrived yesterday and I'm planning on ordering two more lenses right away, a 50mm f/1.4 and 55-300mm, both Pentax. I will want to add a decent macro lens and perhaps wide angle, too. More than likely, I'll combine both into one lens.

I shoot in Detroit quite a bit, and have been for almost eight years now. However, that is not my only interest. I just like taking pictures but have an unusual sense of subject matter, I suppose.

Besides my new Pentax, I also have a Lumix GH2, and a few point-n-shoots (Fuji HS10 and Canon SX30 IS.)
