New at Niagara Falls, ON

Just joined. More learning I guess. Come from Minolta and Yashica film, then first Nikon digital in early 2000's, then Sony (Minolta glass becomes useful) and Nikon (D90). Now Pentax. Have a K10 and looking at the K5, but probably not until next spring. I bought the K10D because friends told me that it is very "film" shooter intuitive. True, mainly in white balance, but I like the camera and results. So I thought I'd wander around the forum and do some learning. Looks like a really complete place to be. Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

My spouse Tessfully's son lives in Niagara Falls, make sure you're wearing your K10D so we can pick you out of the crowds at Christmas , when we are down for a visit.

Welcome to the forum. the K10 is a good camera I still use mine even though i've also picked up a K7 since then
K5 has taken some big drops lately (downtown camera has it $984 body only right now if you are in Toronto)

Welcome from Cambridge, Ontario. You will like your K10D and if you decide to go for the K-5, you won't be disappointed. Try some of the old glass from Pentax, it works very well, especialy the primes.
