PF newbie

Hi, I've just joined the Pentax Forums. I have found the website to be an immensely helpful resource whilst researching the new K series DSLRs. I am currently using a Spotmatic SP and a Spotmatic F with Super Tak lenses also a Canon 350d with 18-55 kit lens and adapted M42 takumar lenses.
Whilst I enjoy film photography and the 350d just about serves its purpose I finally decided that my photography could benefit from some modernisation. So I thought about the canon 7d with the 24-105 for long time but then one day I had a revalation and realised that, hey! actually I don't have to buy into a Canon or Nikon system. I love the ruggedness and weather proofing of the seemingly overlooked Pentax not to mention the price point. After many long nights of research I decided that the K5 ii could very well be the camera that I have wanted my whole short life and the DA* 16-50 looks like it's perfect companion.
Anyway I am now on my way saving up for this combo and should have enough for the body + kit lens by the end of the Summer and the DA* 16-50 by Christmas. Meanwhile I will continue to enjoy running my little workhorse 350d to the ground
Looking forward to getting to know the rest of you Pentax Forumites
