Salutations to all!

So, I've had my Pentax *ist DL for a few years now, and I'm contemplating on getting a newer Pentax model. I saw this K5 ad in craigslist, but then realized I didn't truly know that much about that model. I did a little looking around, and that's how I've found myself here. In terms of introductions, that's about sums it up. In terms of my photography, I'd like to try my hand in almost anything that I can get in to. I enjoy taking pictures outdoors, of unsuspecting people (I believe that if you take them in an environment where they don't have to pose, most people are beautiful), and of what I do for a living. What I'd like to explore is the potential to make photos with models, be it animate or inanimate without compromising visions and ideas of both myself and (potentially) other minds involved in its creation. All feedback will be read and mulled over so please be generous in your thoughts, but hopefully they're constructive and not insulting. That's about it. Thanks for having me!

Welcome! The K-5 would be quite an upgrade for you. On the other hand, you might want to hold out a little longer to see what new cameras are on the horizon from Pentax. Just today the K-01 was officially announced, and more new bodies are expected later in the year. If nothing else the new releases should reduce K-5 prices.

As internet forums go, I think you'll find this an exceptionally constructive and supportive place. Enjoy.

Thanks for the welcome, baro-nite! I'm not sure that this would be the best place to reply, but I agree with your assessment of me making such a big leap from my current to my salivations. I still think that the *ist DL is an amazing camera and that's why I've not upgraded for so long, but I now want a camera that I potentially won't need to upgrade for about the same amount of time that I've had the *ist DL, if not longer. I'll probably keep my current as back up though. As for the new models yet to be announced, I look forward to them!

I'm more or less in the same boat, still happily using my K10D, but planning to upgrade before too long. For now I've decided to upgrade other areas of my kit (lenses & flash) while I wait to see what will replace the K-5.
