new to pentax

First ever Pentax, a K5 iis and fist DSLR. Previous SLR is with a Minolta SRT. Only experience with digital camera is with my Olympus Z5050 digital camera, great camera, been using it for the last 9-years. Decided it was time to go DSLR and pick the Pentax for its WR features.

Welcome aboard! You're going to have fun!

My big suggestion is to set up a "fast shot" user mode - do a search here, you'll see what I mean.

Welcome from Iowa! Excellent pick for a camera. I like tests where someone sits it out in the rain then uses it! Really drives home the WR!!
