Hello from New York City....

Hey all - I am a long time Pentax user (MX, ME, ME Super, LX, istDS and today K-5).

I am an advanced Beginner (or so it seems.) I really know my way around the technical aspects - but need to continue working on composition and so on.

Bought a K-5 today - as I have been pretty frustrated with the ISO range of my istDS and some other quirks that have been showing up lately.

VERY excited to use the K-5.

I have a small range of lenses from DA Kit zoom to an old Ricoh 105mm Macro to a 50mm 1.7 M lenses I just picked up on ebay.

Will provide feedback as I use the K-5.

Thanks for all the help in deciding between K-5 and K-30. Seems like a no brainer - due to the big price drop on the K-5. While I am slightly worried about missing out on the "newest" technology - the K-5 seems to really go head-to-head and beyond against the K-30. PLUS the jump from istDS to the K-5 is so big - I expect to be totally floored.

Pics posted soon! Can't wait to take some LOW LIGHT shots.
