New to Forum, old to Pentax

I did Pentax film since 1976, and eagerly awaited my *istD. I made a serious upgrade I suppose, when I bought a K-5 last month. Still have my ME or whatever it was, with all the lens including a Meade telescope mount. The K-5 is knocking my socks off versus the istD. I gave it to my brother, whose ME Super was the last good camera he had and he is tickled.
We all have a lot of legacy glass. I'm just hoping the K-5 holds up as it is my primary camera for a safari next year.
This time, I did take the time to read the manual...interesting how much I didn't use on my *istD.
