Hello From NY


First let me say thank you to all the forum members. You have helped me to make my decision to purchase my K-5 a real winner. I am relatively brand new to this type of DSLR. My past cameras have been a FujiF10 and Panasonic FZ-35. More than 20 years ago, i was a film shooter (Canon AE-1 and A-1) and have now decided to plunge back into photography. Most of my photography is slanted towards historic sites, nature and landscape shooting. Currently my Pentax equipment is the K-5 with the stock kit (18-55 and 55-300mm) and the 16-45mm F4. I hope to be moving up to better glass in the near future and would love tobe able to rent primes just to get the experience first.

As a newbie, please feel free to recommend any next steps ...

Thanks Again
