Returning home

Hey there pentaxians! I began my photographic journey with my dad's old Pentax K1000, about 15 years ago. I suspect many others out there did the same thing... Anyway, after spending the past 10 years with Canon, I've decided to return home to Pentax. I feel they are one of the few camera manufacturers out there producing cameras for people with a real love for photography, rather than just aiming to fill market segments with 'targeted' products that are hobbled in some way. The canon 6D was the straw that broke this camel's back. Im not impressed with the way Canon hobbled it with only 1 cross-type autofocus sensor, presumably to sway people to the 5Diii.

So here I am, about to order a K5ii. Thanks for such an informative community here. Time to lurk no more!

Loving it!
