Greetings from Sunbury on Thames

Hi everyone.
I actually bought my Limited Edition K5 back in May 2011, along with an 18-135 WR, a DA21 in silver, a 35mm Limited macro and a 100 WR macro.
I usually use my Nikon D3 and a slew of 2.8 zooms for paid work, but the K5 is my personal camera and I think it is a cracker. I am very interested to see what Pentax announce at Photokina - a second body might just persuade me to sell off the super-heavy Nikon gear and stay with Pentax for everything. My wife uses the K5 as second shooter at weddings.
I love the enthusiasm of Pentaxians. In the days of film I had a 645, which was an excellent tool. My budget no longer stretches that far, but the images I get from the K5 are consistently pleasing. The 18-135 gets most use - despite so many negative comments I really like it. I shoot RAW so LR4.1 does allow correction of any minor issues in PP.
Glad to be here!
