New Pentax Convert

Hello all. For a long time I was an Olympus user but eventually got fed up with the technical limitations of the FourThirds format and the lack of third party support for it. Having been impressed with the various Pentax DSLR cameras that a friend has had over the years, I recently took the plunge and traded in my Olympus E-30, lenses and other kit for a K-5 with the DA 18-55 WR and DA 50-200 WR kit lenses. It's a fresh start for me, photographically speaking, but I am already appreciating just how good a piece of kit the K-5 is
