Excited to own my first "real" camera!

Hey all!

I just graduated college as an Electrical Engineer, and I have patiently waited for this day that I can afford my very own DSLR and glass! I have always been the pesky kid that has borrowed everyones camera and I based on what I'm ready to spend, it seems like a K-5 II is a great way to start!

My goals for the camera:
  • Size
  • Durability
  • Value
  • Weatherproofing
  • Lenses already in my family!

After having peaked around the community for the past couple days, I'm really excited to learn from y'all and make the most of what I get!
