I am looking to buy my first Pentax

Hi i am new to photography and am looking to get started with a nice camera. The K-5 Silver addition is what I am looking for. Any thoughts on a good high end starter camera?

Welcome to the forum, glad to have you on board. Going for the Pentax K-5 is a good idea because you then have a camera you'll grow into whereas if you get the starters DSLR you may grow out of it very soon and the upgrade costs money.

Welcome to the forum, leifsavage. If the K-5 fits your budget, I'm sure you'll love it. As the K-5 is my first DSLR, I found (still finding) that there is a lot to learn, but it is so much fun, and takes better photos than I deserve!
