Hello from West Texas - Aerial Photo

Hello everyone,

just joined this forum to learn more about the Pentax world.
Thinking to buy a K5 and play around with all those lenses.
Have been using Canon Rebels, the mighty A650 and Fujifilm HS10. Just bought a Nikon D5100 and don't like the kit lenses it came with.
Time to try something different.
I do mostly aerial photography out of a Cessna 172.

Thanks for the welcome.
Funny, a friend of mine tried to sell me on the Canon just yesterday.
I will forward him the comparison.
