Hello from Arizona

Hi all,

Im an avid amature just getting back into the hobby. I use a Canon sx10is. Its a good point and shoot super zoom with full manual controls, but I want better!!! I havent had a good job in almost 2 years, but, I just landed a good paying job and I start Monday...YAY. Im gonna start saving my pennies and maybe have a garage sale in order to buy a dslr. Right now a k-5 tops the list. I like to shoot landscape, birds and wildlife, architecture, some portraits, and Im experimenting with macro and time lapse.

I've read this is a friendly, helpful forum. I look forward to your company.

Welcome to the Forums. The K-5 is a nice camera and I am sure it will do what you need. Post some pics soon. Last time I was in Arizona I was using an MX - that's a while back!
