Yup, I am new to Pentax Forums, but not the Cameras!

Hey Folks! Greetings from a devoted Pentax shooter! Sometimes I think it is like being a fan of the Chicago Cubs. (Someday they will get there.) I have never shot Nikon or Canon for long periods and I just don't understand all the hype. I wish Pentax was more mainstream and after market manufactures supported it better, but oh well? I recently read a review on Nikon's new D4, a $6000 nut. It's still at 16.2MP, better noise control at high ISO's, but pound for pound I would take my little 'ol K-5 any day week. And I guess I do, where as that is all I have got. Cheers!

Welcome, and since I see you live in Utah, and since I know Utah is scenic, post some pics!
