Hello all! I just recently got interested in photography and acquired a k1000 to try out some basic film photography. Just bought a k-5 and hoping I will enjoy it daily

Welcome to the forum. The K-5 is a wonderful camera. I transitioned to my K-5 from a 40 year old Minolta SLR. Learning on the K-5 was easy, since it had options for me to return to a much more retro form of photography. I would advise you to study the options available on the K-5 piecemeal, and incorporate them into your daily photography. In a few months you'll realize the power of this camera.

Happy shooting!
