Hello all!

Hello fellow Pentaxians!

I'm a 22-year-old student who has just ordered a K-5 from Adorama, and is eagerly anticipating its arrival! I've been a Pentax user for a few years now, shooting with an old ESII and some nice M42 lenses. I've enjoyed shooting film, and I'm getting fine results from slide film (sometimes the exposure is a bit iffy, but the good shots are good indeed). However, the cost of film and processing is just too much -- I hate looking at the camera sitting on the shelf because I'm too broke to shoot with it. So, I've bought a K-5, after months and months of saving and obsessive research. It does seem to be the total package -- I can't wait for mine to come.

Anyway, I've been lurking on these forums for a while, and they've been a useful resource. Since I've now committed to Pentax, it seems like a good time to start posting!

Thanks,

Jordan

Welcome aboard. I got my K5 from Adorama and they are great with support and shipping. Have you thought about an M42-PK adapter? Sounds like you have some old M42 glass and it adds another whole dimension to the K-5.
