Switched From Canon

I happily switched from a Canon 60d to the K-5 II only a month ago. My decision was largely due to Canon's lack of weather sealed lens selection for crop cameras. I am already noticing some huge advantages of the K-5 II and the Pentax system. Overall image quality is greatly improved over 60d. Also, High ISO performance is leaps and bounds better. The size, weight, feel, and intuitive menu system make this camera AMAZING!

Would like dual card slot... ONLY REQUEST!

I have switched to Pentax and I am happy to be apart of this community.

Excellent. You'll a better spokesman for Pentax than me as I've never use any other system. I'm sure you'll get very good at explaining your decision & findings to Cannon users from here on out. Enjoy and post pics.
