From K-X to K-5iis... The journey begins.

Hello all Pentaxians,
Have been reading this forum ever since I bought my k-x 2.5 years ago (still going strong) and I am hooked to it. This place makes me keep coming back for lens reviews, contests, deals, forum members excellent stories and their work and what not. Honestly I have been a bystander until today and only have been reading on this forum but not really contributing to anything in particular. Having bought the new K-5iis I finally had the courage to join this forum today to be able to share the experience with pentax cameras I had thus far and going forward.
Gear low down...
. K-X with Pentax 18-55mm and Pentax 55-300mm kit.
. K-5iis with Pentax D-FA 100mm macro WR
. Pentax DA 50mm/f1.8, Pentax M 50mm/1.7, Pentax M 50mm/f2, Cambridge M 200mm/F2.8, Pentax M42 300mm/f4, Pentax-FA 28-200mm/F3.8-5.6
. and several other pentax and non-pentax brand manual lenses.

It's a good kit you've got there, seems you really like your 50's.
