Good Evening from Orlando, Florida

Some 20 years ago I was bitten by the Photography bug and decided to purchase my first camera. It was an awesome K1000. I learned a lot from full manual controls. I finally gave in to digital and purchased an istDL some years back and have enjoyed making pictures of many different subject matter. My next purchase (June or July) will be the K5 IIs. I look forward to participating in forum threads.

Hey Ter-or, sorry it took so long to reply, I am new to this "forum" stuff. I have read extensively on the K5iis and cant wait to buy it, but I now wont be able to purchase it until December; hopefully they will still be available.

Luckily we don't have too many of those days around here. Scotland, however, is on my bucket list. I would go insane with so many photo ops.

Well, one of the cameras will still be available, the K5IIs probably will be - and certainly will be available used.
