The New Guy

Howdy. Old film guy (Pentax LX system) considering Pentax K5 DSLR. I reside in the Los Angeles area of California and am an avid bird and photographer.

Welcome to the forums! I'm very happy with my K-5. I shoot wildlife with my DA 55-300mm, but would want something longer if I were to shoot birds in earnest. Well, maybe a DA*300 would be good enough to stand some cropping. Not as nimble as the 55-300, though

Welcome, it's hard to get that LX feeling out of Pentax DSLR, as the viewfinders are all now so wee.
