Another new Pentax K-5 user...

Hi all... soon-to-be new Pentax owner. K-5, a DA Limited trio (15, 35, and 70) and a few accessories are in shipment. Should arrive on Tuesday!

I'm making a partial switch from Nikon, and will be a dual system user. Keeping my FX and gear, but all of the DX stuff is gone or going soon.

I tend to shoot mostly landscapes, but have recently been experimenting with macro/ product/ abstract photography.

Looking forward to learning from the experts here, and contributing when I am able.

It's here...

Batteries are charged. Been reading the owner's manual, scouring the site and adjusting settings. Played around with the camera inside today using the other (non-Pentax) camera and lenses as test subjects. Used TAv mode with full ISO range enabled. Hand-held product-type shots. With creative use of B&W in post processing, useable pics at ISO 6400. Who'd a thunk it?

I'm liking the ergos and build quality. Love the size and feel of the DA Limiteds.

Now I need to get outside, take some shots and get posting.
