De-lurking to say Hi

Hey all,

Switched over from Canon to Pentax at the end of 2009 but haven't really spent much time on the forums until lately when I upgraded to the k5iis. Its a surprisingly different beastie from the k5 and browsing through the forums i've found a lot of useful info i wish i'd had earlier (the SDM fix is a godsend).

so - a big THANK YOU from Singapore

EDIT : Looked over a few other intros and realized its nice to post a sample photo or two - the main reason I switched over to Pentax was because of the affordable Weather Sealed system (also great dynamic range and sensible camera controls), so here's a shot I may not have dared take with my old 20D.

View from the Materhorn, Switzerland - 13,899 ft. above sea level at -14 celsius (+ wind chill)
Pentax K5+DA* 16-50
