New to Pentax,

Been using Nikon D90 and Olympus Pen, but wanted the weather sealed design for our upcoming trip. Just got a new K5 with the 18-55, so far so good. Looking forward to being able to take pictures without worrying about destroying the camera!

Thanks! From what I've been reading I would call it the "path less traveled". That's not a problem, as I've always had a problem following the crowd. Just need to find one (or a couple) of the nice DA lens and the 18-135 wr and I'll be happy for a while.

Forgot to mention - you live in one of the places that's on my "bucket list". Been to many countries around the world, but really want to
travel to and see your beautiful country someday. Have always been fascinated with the pictures and stories about Australia.
