Pentax wannabe

I've currently got an Olympus E-500 with the twin lens kit. I'm thinking of getting a Pentax K5 with either the twin lens kit (18-55mm + 50-200mm) or the 18-135mm. The imminent arrival of the K30 (and possibly the K5 replacement) has also muddied the water a bit.

Always fancied the idea of a Pentax ever since I saw the lovely MX and ME Super many moons years ago. Wish I'd got one then but now I'm hoping to make up for it. I've got lots of siren voices from friends trying to turn me to Canon or Nikon, but I've never been one to follow the crowd (hence the E-500)!

I love this forum - really excellent, especially the K5 'No more tests! just pictures' thread. Some great work there (and lots of squirrels!) Looking forward to adding some of my own work one day
