Looking at Pentax - Perth, Aus

Hey everyone.

My name's Lewis. I'm from Perth Western AUstralia.

I used to own Canon DSLR's, after a little break from photography im looking to get back into it all and thinking Pentax is the way to go!

Interested in the K5II and K5IIs. Hopefully some people here use these cameras, can help me choose and and share our images!

Thanks everyone.

Welcome!

If you can, go for K5IIs without any doubt.
Check this review:
Pentax K-5 II / IIs Review - Introduction - PentaxForums.com

Also check PENTAX : Welcome to the PENTAX Photo Gallery, you can select the camera/lenses you want and check photos done with that setup.

OK, 5 for 5 now for the "s" version ... that's not too surprising for me ...

What type of photography do you do ... or are you planning to do ... J

I'll be doing a bit of everything, street, photojournalismish things, events, landscape/nature, low light....everything.

Basically I like to carry a camera just about everywhere with me for that "just in case" point of view.

I recommend throwing a couple of DA Limiteds in your bag (pocket ). That way you are going to have a very high quality, yet unobtrusive and lightweight kit.

G'day. All the best in your search. I'm also after a K-5 IIs myself and I can say it is a worthy investment.
