Intro from Australia


A quick intro from Australia. I am currently looking to change from an Olympus E-3 to the K-5 as the prices have come down significantly. The site has been a great source of information, particularly in regards to lenses. I am now in the process of working out what glass will fit my needs. The K-5 seems the right choice when coming from the weather sealed Olympus.

Thanks for the welcome. As there appear to be a few Australians here, any recommendation in regards to who currently has the best price for a K-5? I have seen Ted's at $999.
