Took a while......

Well after lots of lurking in the shadows following lots of posts and looking at loads of great pictures I finally picked up a mint condition K-5 with the two kit lenses just before Christmas 2012 !! I'm now on the verge of selling/trading in my Canon gear to go towards more Pentax equipment.

I've been mightily impressed with how it handles doing studio portraits, off both of the kit lenses so its been an adventure I wish I'd started a lot sooner !!

I've attached a recent portrait image for a client that I did the other weekend, taken with the 55-200 kit lens
