Joined the forum a few minutes ago. I have a new K-5 II courtesy of the B&H Black Friday sale. Very interested to see the Pentax IQ. My past experience is with Nikon, Sony, and Olympus μ4/3.

Hi Larry, and welcome to the Forums.

Keep your eye the Marketplace for lenses for your new acquisition. I've bought several from members in different parts of the world over the past few years. Enjoy your time here.

Welcome from Iowa! First comes the camera, then comes the lenses!! Pentax can use any K-mount lens made! This makes for cheap options for lens needs, or wants!
I got some very usable glass for $8, $10. The most i have spent is $60!! Granted these aren't Limiteds or DA*, but I'm really cheap!! Let us know what you think of the new set up.
