New here and looking for advice

Hello everyone,

At the moment i use a Nikon D90 and a couple of lenses but not seriously invested in the brand. I keep looking on Ebay and Pentax stuff because of the compatability with old lenses as money is tight for me. I feel Nikon stuff i very expensive.

I own 3 Yongnuo YN560 flashes but my cheapo triggers have broken, so before i buy/sell anything i hoped somebody could tell me if the RF-603 triggers are Pentax compatable?

I'd really like a K-5 i think. Are there any short comings with this model?. From what i see it seems great apart from the 1/180s sync speed.

What are the Pentax-M lenses or M42 like with regards to focus confirm on the K5?

Sorry for all the questions and if i've done something wrong i'll apologise, i'm not usually a forums user but I keep getting drawn in the Pentax world.

Welcome. I would suggest posting your questions in either the beginners forum, or the K-5 forum. You'll get a lot more input there.
