Old (new) Pentaxian (Pentaxonite?)

Hey Everyone!
I've decided it's time to face my fears and embrace digital photography!
Used to shoot weddings/light commercial back in the days when the Nikon F1 and F2 were king. I've been lurking a loooong time and have decided the K5 will probably be a great fit for me. I'm a geologist now and end up in really cold/dusty/humid places, so the weather sealing sounds good to me.
Guess I'll find out!

Welcome and yes... as long you have a WR lens attached, you should be good to go .
Enjoy your camera!

Welcome, this sounds like something Superman should avoid.

It was my F3's filling up with sand in the Middle East that switched me to Pentax all those years ago.

Like you, it took me a long tome to get to digital. As noted above, so long as you have a WR lens, you'll be good in bad weather. Welcome!
