Welcome to another Chicagoan! Check out "Chicago Area Photowalks" on FB. Maybe I'll see you around soon.

18-55 WR kit, I'm also looking into a Tamron 70-200mm, Sigma 70-300mm, and a small Pentax prime in the 40mm range. For now though, the 18-55 should do the trick in getting to know the camera and the Pentax system.

Welcome to the forum, obiwandado. I think you're going to enjoy both the K-5 and PF.

Well, received my camera a week after I was supposed to, but I'm happy nonetheless. I've shot a few pics, all in low light, and the quality at high ISO's is great. Can't wait to figure everything out and start using this thing to its true potential. I'll post some pictures tomorrow, but for now, cheers from a happy new Pentax K-5 owner.
