Coming back to an old hobby

Hi to everybody!
After a long research period I decided to enter the Pentax world.
My first camera was an Olympus OM2N. Then I jumped to Canon system: Rebel first, and after that, an Elan.
After many years waiting for the prices to come down and the technology improves on DSLRs Im finally back to this old hobby.
Pentax K5, 18-55 and 50-200 WRs. Unfortunately, my first impression wasnt what I expected: please see my first post on the help subforum.

Welcome back to photography, and to our forums. Hope you get you 18-55 issue sorted out; as Marc suggests in the other thread, try cleaning the electrical contacts.
