New member and new owner!

Hi all

Already a fan of the forum, talk about stains and flops and autofocus certainly not enough to put me off becoming a proud new owner of a K-5 (actually I get it on 15th december, kit lens, then I get the ED 55-300mm lens on 25th ) and of the forum today

I am quite intimidated by the camera's level of flexibility but I don't care I am also enthused by the fans of the camera and the reviews and to learn to make great pics of my own

So - over to the K-5 forum to introduce myself!

And have just learned my 55-300 is not weather sealed, I thought it was because it looked like the other WR lenses. Taking pics at the beach and on boats and in snow is a lot of what I'll do so I think "I" am going back to the shop, the 55-200 WR and Tamron 70-300 can be had instead for the same price right now (sorry didn't know about your forum sponsors when I bought it yesterday)
