Hello from London, England

Hello.

After much deliberation I went for a K-5ii with the kit 18-55 WR lens.

Battery is charging, really looking forward to giving it a good once over.

It was between a Canon Eos 60D, a Nikon D7000 and the Pentax.

The build quality and weather sealing was the clincher for me, along with the vintage lens culture. Looking forward to some quality photography again, this is the first 'proper' camera I've had for years...

Thanks.

Yeah can't wait to get stuck in. Really impressed with the K-5 pictures thread, very inspiring and the photographers here are a bit good aren't they?

Indeed they are. A word of advise. Pentaxians here are really extremists. Really, Pentax here is a religion or a cult. I figured the hard way myself

What I like about this forum is the diversity and THE HUMONGOUS amount of experience people have which continues to this digital era.

Cheers!

I'm learning the ways of the camera, it's so capable there's a lot to it. Like the layout and menus etc.

Trying some RAW shots today, using it is fairly new to me...

Trial and error here I come.

I'm ready but haven't produced any yet!

Looking forward to getting out into the English countryside when the weather's brighter...
