New Pentaxian...

Hello PentaxForums:

I'm an old Contax 139 (Zeiss 85-1.4 & 50-1.8) user and then a couple of digital cameras, Early Nikon CoolPix and Sony 6 Megapixal. Gave my wife a Canon G11 and now we decided to get a SLR.

It is as thrilling or more so as when I first got the Contax so long ago but now with even more control.

Da*16-50 and DA40.

DA* 50-135 coming soon.

Hope to convert the Zeiss lens in the future as well.

This forum and the killer reviews convinced me to go for the K5.

Using the K5 was sure a confirmation that all the recommendations and positive comments were right on.

Lot's to learn...

It has only just begun...

Welcome to the forum, Mark. That's a nice shot of Howe Sound and the wind.

Welcome and great pictures ... the K-5 is really great IMHO ... better in many ways as to my former K-7. Enjoy!
