Hello from Charleston, SC

Hello Pentax Forum,
After lurking here for about a month I ordered a K-5 / 18-55 kit and have been using it for a couple of weeks, very happy with it so far.
Was swayed by the compact and rugged qualities and ordered the kit without having the chance to see or handle one.
All the positive comments here are spot on and the negative ones didn't come to the party. Not yet anyway.

I've been using an Olympus Pen E-PL1 that I'll probably keep, might even get a pancake for it. Also have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ4 that my wife confiscated.
The lack of viewfinders are annoying to say the least.
Back in the day I had a Canon AE-1 then a Nikon N2000 so manual focus is not a foreign concept.

I'll probably pick up some vintage glass soon. Hope I don't have LBA already

Welcome to Pentax Forums! I joined on November 4th and by the next day I had spent over five hours on it. I think you'll enjoy it.

Welcome Low. Concerning LBA we're no help at all. All we do is exacerbate the heck out of it! Looking forward to seeing your images.
