Airline pilot based in Auckland, New Zealand. Married with four adult daughters.

Last Pentax was an MZ-5N which I loved. I completed a photography course at a local polytechnic some years back, about half of the content was on darkroom technique.

Last few years I have been using a Canon Powershot but now wish to upgrade to a DSLR. I am considering the K-5 so that I can use my old lenses, flash units and other accessories. I have found the reviews on the forum very helpful thank you.

Greetings all
I have been reading the reviews for a while and decided it was time to jump in. Funny thing this Pentax addiction. Just when I think it is time to ditch it all something comes along that feeds the fire. I have a hodgepodge other geer and a partner that works in a second hand store. That connection has been my lba lifeline and has yielded some great finds, from some mint M series bodies to a collection of lenses that now range from 17mm fisheye to 320mm. It is amazing what people get rid of cheep! I also have some canon and Minolta geer just for fun, but it never gets used. The picture quality of the Pentax always wins. Let's hope the fun never ends

Welcome to the forum. The K-5 is a great camera. The new K-30 is out now, as I'm sure you've seen. Have fun with whatever you get!

Greetings all. I am currently a university student living in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

My pentaxs are pentax zx-m, pentax MX, and pentax k-x. And I really love the k-x.

Thankyou for the complete review of many lenses of Pentax, and it really helps me.
