Hello from BugEZ

I am a new forum member.

I have been using Pentax equipment since I was an undergraduate student in the early 1970's. I graduated from film to digital a few years back with an *ist DS, then migrated to a K100D and now a K5. I chose Pentax because my old lenses could still be used. These lenses include a Pentax 50mm macro lens and a Vivitar 100- 300 mm macro zoom lens. The only automatic lens I own that the digital bodies "drive" are the 18-55 mm lenses that came with the *ist DS and the K100D.

My principal interest in my photographic hobby is taking insect photos. I do macro candids" in the field with the K5 as well as stacked photos in my basement studio with the K100D.

I joined the forum to get some help with the Pentax Digital Camera Utility 4 (PCDU) software. I have used the older software that came with the *ist DS without difficulty, but thought I should start using the more modern stuff. I was having diffulty processing a folder of raw images with the new software. Happily I have found some tips on website that I am anxious to try.

Kind regards,

G'day Keith and welcome here. The K-5 will no doubt impress you and you'll have newfound joy in the craft with that tool. Enjoy the forum.
