Hello from Somerset, UK

Hi!

I've been lurking here for a while as I contemplate making the move from Canon over to Pentax with my digital equipment

Looking forward to chatting to you all

Simon

Ha! for me it's come down to IQ above all else. Even before you factor in cost, the K-5 simply trounces the competition unless you want to pay for FF. Then to offer this at a price lower than many competitors have set their mid range gear is brilliant.

I've really only heard good things. The only criticism I see is to do with the number of lenses and size of system available. And to be honest I use 2 zooms and 3 primes at most, all of which have Pentax equivalents which have amazing reviews too!

Also there's a bit of me that wants to get away from the Canikon bandwagon and be a little different. Not to mention that my first ever SLR was a P30t which I still use from time to time so there's a bit of nostalgia there as well

Just waiting to get my hands on a K-5 before I take the plunge fully.
