New to the world of photography.

Hi, my name is Rob and I have just entered the world of dslr photography.
I have a K5 which is a wedding present off the wife after we got married last saturday. I spent a good couple of months reading reviews and visiting various forums before deciding which camera to buy. I was strongly drawn to the sony A580 , especially with it having access to the back range of minolta lenses
It was only when I looked into pentax that it became apparent what a well specced camera the K5 is.
I have purchased a few cheap lenses to get me going and will slowly add to it with better quality glass in the future.
Hope to meet you all at some point on here and will add photos when I manage to take some good ones..
