Hi from the UK

Hi, I've just joined the forum after using Pentax for many years, starting my Pentax journey borrowing my Dads K1000 over 20 years ago. I have used many cameras in the intervening years and still use film in some old rangefinders, but I now manily use a DSLR and have moved up through a ist DL2 to a K200D a K-X and now I have just recieved a K-5 purchased on Friday, which I am currently playing with.

Interestingly, it was only made this year, it had the Pentax Ricoh label on it but it was still on firmware 1.01, so I have updated this as my first job. After taking a few shots, the increase in quality is clear, so I am looking forward to getting out this weekend and giving it a workout.

I also use a Panasonic Micro 4/3 mainly with a 14mm prime, so I do a lot of zooming with my feet, but it is great with older pentax glass.

Thanks, Twevor.
