Hello from Germany

I just wanted to introduce myself.

I recently bought a Pentax K-5 since I thought it finally would be the time for a DSLR. My background is Canon A-1 SLR which I adopted from my father about 10 years ago. Also I own a Canon Powershot S90 compact camera which has served me well on vacations and such. Because shooting on film gets expensive and time consuming I didn't use the A-1 for about 2 years.
Now I want to come back to more 'serious' photography and the K-5 seems to be perfect for that.

A few of my photos will be posted here: Flickr: Ikaros_'s Photostream

You'll love the K-5 if you like to take control of the camera yourself. Of course that means there's no one to blame but yourself.

That's why I bought a DSLR! And yes I know that feeling from my A-1.. the difference is now I don't have to waste film while learning. I'm sure the K-5 and me will have lots of fun together
