Hello from Canada

Hi everybody, I just want to say that this is the best forum I have ever run across. The wealth of information I have been borrowing for the last 6 months has been invaluable!
I have a K10d that I picked up used with a Sigma 18-125 attached for a great price and this started me on the dslr trail.
I am currently watching the prices on the K5 and will be purchasing one in the next few days. My son plays live music in night clubs and I think the low light capabilities of the K5 is what I am looking for.
The reason I went with the Pentax DSLR's is due to the amount of lenses I had for film. I must admit that the ease of available knowledge to access on this forum was a large part also!
Anyway thanks again for all your guys and gals input to this forum, it's amazing and very much appreciated!
Scott

I was born in Ocean Park in 1940 - we moved to Crescent Heights when I was two years old (Crescent Drive) - moved when I was twelve to 13045 Crescent Road. Granduated from Semiahmoo in 1957 and went to military college.

My Grandfather was brought out of England in 1912 to build the resort. No names in the history books, we were just the grunts, but one newspaper snap was in the museum in Cloverdale - foreman in front of new Quoins with Hindoo helpers or words to that effect. They were Sikh. Typical of the age.
