Looks like I'm coming back (again)

Since last we spoke I moved to Mirrorless and purchased a stunning little Olympus E-M5. It is a fantastic camera and I have no complaints.
However there is still an itch that needs scratching. Like a relationship where I never found closure. The camera that will always top my "should never have sold it" list (there is a matching motorcycle list, but that's another story).
Its the K-5 Classic.
Without a doubt, the K-5 felt the most natural in my hands. I easily got my best photos from it. It was the best 'fit'.

So with my friend Tess recently upgrading to a K-3 and moving OS soon, her old K-5 was up for grabs. I couldn't say no.
Watch this space, a K-5 is coming back.

Welcome back! The K-5 is well worth the return, I'm sure.
