From S90 to K5

Hey all!

Just joined the Pentax world yesterday! After literally months reading reviews and user reports on the Canon 7d and 60d, I randomly stumbled across a review of the K5. The same night, I went to a camera store and handled all three. As soon as I flipped to M and played around the the controls, I knew it was the right choice. It seems so intuitive to use (especially compared the the button-masher 60d). Very well thought out.

I had been using a Canon S90 for the past year and a half as my entry-point to photography. I didn't want to jump into photography and get caught up in the technicalities of it, so I started small. Since the S90 shoots in full manual mode and in RAW, it's the perfect camera for the serious beginner IMO. Now that I feel I've caught up to it's limits, I moved on. The Pentax K5 was my choice. I can't want to start shooting with it.

You can check out some of my older work here.

So now you have one of the best compact cameras and on of the best among small DSLR. Congrats on your equipment, and by looking at your pictures I believe it seems to be in good hands.
