Hello from Singapore

Hi guys!

I just joined the site after having browsed it quite a bit recently...

Although I'm loaded in Canon gears (the kind that is heavy and white or at least with some red) I had some old and good pentax lenses with a K1000 and MX and I was always tempted to try digital with them... Well it is now done, I just bought a K-5 this week and after trying it just a little I realize that:
- it's super fun to use
- it's really manageable (no longer like these viewfinders that look smaller than keyholes)
- it's not going to be easy, easy... been spoiled by Canon 1D autofocus... going back manual will require some practice

But anyway, I really appreciate this community and especially to read opinions and reviews about manual lens... I still have a few dark points in my collection so I might be out for shopping again (though I just bought 3 lenses from KEH, but you know that: you never have enough).
