Hi, I am a new user by default. I am a Nikon fan but wound up with my son's K5 and lenses. He got frustrated with the K5 and sent it back for repairs, he felt it needed. After much frustration, I took the camera for astrophotography and general work. I have been in photography for over 58 years and went digital in 2005. I have almost worn out my D70s and the K5 is a welcome addition. I had to adjust the back focus to my satisfaction and all seems well.

Welcome, and thanks for the intro! It's not unusual to have two systems around here, but nice to see you enjoy your K-5. I sure love mine!

Welcome to the forum, it's great to hear that you can actually fall heir to your childrens possessions, for me it always seems the other way around.

I'll get advice in future from you.
