New K-5 owner in Seattle

Hi! I've got a Pentax K-5 on the way, I'm new to Pentax as well as to DSLR's. My previous camera was a M43 Panasonic GF1. I like shooting landscapes and nature photos, I do a lot of hiking and outdoor activities which present great photo ops. I also like travel and street photography. My K-5 is coming with the 18-55WR lens, and I've also bought the 70MM limited as a portrait lens. I'd like to also get a top-notch wide-angle and, less importantly, a macro lens. I've researched the forums and online, but haven't come to any conclusions on either of these. Oh, and I've also purchased the K-5 e-book I read about in these forums. If anyone has any suggestions on either lenses or just tips for a newbie to get started with the K-5, I'd really appreciate it! Looking forward to becoming a Pentax owner and participating in this community!

Hi, Jake. Welcome to the forum from just a little north of you. I think you'll love that K-5.
